About the Instructor: Linda Voss Plummer

Linda Voss Plummer can’t remember when she didn’t knit and has taught locally and regionally and has been fortunate to study with nationally and internationally recognized knitters, spinner and weavers. She loves to lead students to the joy of knitting and then watch them become independent, free-thinking knitters, helping them create their own designs and make decisions about how they want to adapt patterns. Her special passions are cables, lace, domino and two color knitting such as Fair Isle and Scandinavian patterns. She feels privileged to design for several yarn companies and is published among others, Interweave Knits, Vogue Knitting, Knit Simple, as well as Cascade, Zealana and Noro books. She also spins, weaves and quilts but if, perish the thought, she had to decide on one activity, it would be knitting.
