with Rhonda Fargnoli
Rhonda has loved creating things for as long as she can remember. She learned to knit from her aunt, Farida, a knitwear designer who has owned a local yarn store for 47 years. Rhonda studied fashion design in college but fell in love with teaching when her daughter's class needed an art teacher. Today, Rhonda teaches knitwear design at Rhode Island School of Design Continuing Education and is the co-owner and designer at Coastal Colour Yarns. Her designs have appeared in Vogue Knitting, Noro Magazine and Knit Simple. Rhonda is thrilled to bring her dual passion for knitting and teaching to the Craftsy platform!
