Christine Long Derks, TreasureGoddess

Christine dyes, spins, knits and crochets all the things! After creating tons of textured art yarns, she looked at it and thought, "it's gorgeous, but what can I do with it?"  She decided to find out!

She designs patterns that let hand dyed and handspun yarn shine through.  Christine loves not only teaching people how to make their own handspun works of art, but also how to knit, crochet and weave with their one-of-a-kind yarn.  She has found simple techniques that let the yarn shine through, helping people use and enjoy their handspun yarn.  Christine is the owner of Treasure Goddess Yarn and can be found on ravelry, instagram and twitter as treasuregoddess.
