I am a knitwear designer and knit shop owner. I own Knitting on the Fringe in Commerce Township, Michigan. I practiced law for many years but traded in my pen for knitting needles a few years ago. I find the fiber arts world far more exciting and enjoy a life surrounded by other fiber people.
Our store is full of magnificent fibers, notions, books and exclusive designs. We weave, spin, dye, felt, knit, crochet and have fun all day long! Please stop in if you are in the area.
