Do what you love – that’s Tonya’s philosophy. For over four years, Tonya has done just that, selling yarn and teaching knitting classes at her local yarn store. Tonya soon began designing her own knitwear and has had patterns published by major yarn companies, books, online magazines and print magazines in the United States and Europe. Though she has found it exciting to see her name in print, the real reward for Tonya has been forming bonds with a diverse group of people.
Though she is passionate about knitting, Tonya’s number one priority is her family. She and her husband Craig have two small boys, Leo and Johnny.
