Craftsy Instructor


Hi! My name is Yahaira Ferreira. I learned to knit and sew while in graduate school and haven't stopped since! As the author of two knitting books, Sensual Knits and Pure Knits, I've been part of the crafting world for many years. Due to a bout with carpel tunnel, I've turned my focus from knitting to sewing, and recently designed my own line of handbags, clutches, and coin purses.
