I'm a math professor by trade, and (unsurprisingly) my designs are informed by mathematical concepts. I co-edited the books <i>Making Mathematics with Needlework: Ten Papers and Ten Projects</i> and <i>Crafting by Concepts: Fiber Arts and Mathematics</i> with my colleague and friend Carolyn Yackel.
