TEACHER • Anne Weil of the Flax & Twine blog/website, is a craft pro, national teacher, and author of Weaving Within Reach and Arm Knitting. We have hosted Anne's workshops many times at Cattywampus to raving fans and are always thrilled when she comes back to Ojai. "Clean and simple design thrills me. I make things for home, for play, for gifts or for fun. More than that, I love showing others how to make them, too! I find peace and happiness in making, but understand the challenges of finding the time as a busy mother of three. Wanting happy-making in my life inspired me to start writing this blog and then, to leave my life in investment banking behind. Stay a while and let me bring a little of my happy handmade life to you!"
