Featured Artiste: Karen Pardee of Serendipity Saori Studio

Publisher’s Notes:  Jillian Moreno.  Yup, THE Jillian Moreno…the one you know from oh, so many places in her present and past:  Knitty…Big Girl Knits…Interweave…PLY magazine.  When it comes to “thought leadership” in the fiber community, it’s hard to think of someone more accomplished.  It is my great pleasure to feature Jillian this week, here at […]
