C. Burkhard on

Fiber related arts have a long tradition in my family. As I child I was surrounded by knitting/crocheting aunts and my grandmother always dreamed about having her own yarn shop.

Moving from Switzerland to the US several years ago I rediscovered these roots and became a not only a Lismi, a person who knits in Swiss German, but a designer and fiber enthusiast.
