On the next edition of Fiber Hooligan (10/7/13), Ron & Theresa Miskin will be interviewing Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton.
Cornelia is now in the 30th year of her design career. She started in New York where she developed her talent during the early 80’s. There she designed for knitting magazines, specialty shops and a private clientele. The high point of her time in NY was a hand knit collection under her own label that was sold to select boutiques in 20 states from Florida to Alaska.
A move over the Atlantic from New York to Sweden 26 years ago gave her the peace and harmony to raise a family and further develop her artistic creativity. The business diversified and she started distributing the artisan yarn collections from Noro, Colinette, Koigu and Malabrigo in Scandinavia.
Cornelia has 12 pattern books to her name. The last - Noro: Meet the Man was published by Soho Publishing in the fall of 2009. A new book will be released next month using the Poems Collection from Universal Yarn.
For the past two years Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton has been focussing more of her efforts in designing for & promoting her own yarn label - Heaven’s Hand.
Please join us for what we know will be a wonderful show.

On a special Thursday edition of Fiber Hooligan (9/19/13) my guests will be some of the gang from Team STITCHES. I get lots of requests and suggestions about who to have as guests on the show. The one that has been most requested is the team that makes STITCHES Expos happen. People have told me that they want to hear how the shows work and what it takes to make an event like STITCHES happen. So I've decided to have Mavis Smith (our customer service manager and the person who takes care of the teachers), Lisa Mannes (who does a lot of our marketing & PR and who takes all the pictures at the shows), Kristi Miller (a.k.a. Knitters Brat who takes care of all the vendors and sponsors in the Markets) on the show next week for a special (extra) episode on Thursday at 11:00 am (central time).
They are going to be talking about all thing STITCHES and giving highlights to our upcoming show in Hartford, CT in November. With a little luck they won't tell too many stories about me (smile). Oh right… And we're probably going to be giving away a few prizes for our live listeners.
These are remarkable women. I hope you'll join us for this show.
