Margaret Heathman is an author, designer, teacher, mentor, and creativity coach. Her book, Knitting Languages, is sold around the world and her designs can be found in craft stores throughout the U.S. As a writer, Margaret shares her knowledge through magazine articles. When she is not involved in dog rescues, writing projects, organizing fiber conferences, judging knitting and spinning competitions, or creating knitting designs, Margaret teaches knitting and spinning, traveling widely to share her knowledge. She is a proponent of the creative process and has developed classes that teach others how to have fun with fiber. Whether she is knitting the giant turtle, A’Tuin, from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series, a Quidditch banner, unique hand puppets, a fairy tale play mat, or teaching others to knit and create with their fiber, Margaret says that fun is at the heart of her fiber adventures.
