Nina Machlin Dayton has been knitting, designing and teaching for over 35 years. Her first professional job was as a hand knitter for couturier designer Joan Vass in the early 1980s and she never looked back. A native New Yorker, Nina currently lives in western Massachusetts with her husband, daughter, 2 cats and a dog in an old Victorian house filled to the rafters with yarn and books.
