Una Walker is a fiber artist and sought-after teacher who grew up in her parents' craft supply store where she gained experience in a wide range of crafts, an example being her appearance on HGTV's 'That's Clever' in 2009, making a pair of shoes! From raw wool, to sewing the finishing stitch, she is always looking ahead to new and creative approaches.
She got started punching over a decade ago at a craft show "make and take" where she first worked with the Oxford Punch Needle. In 2014 she gained her Oxford Teaching Certificate from the Oxford Rug Hooking School.
Una teaches rug punching with both patience and an attention to detail, and she loves working with beginners. Una has taught at Estes Park Wool Market, Black Sheep Gathering, Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival, and Madrona Fiber Arts.
Una lives in Claremont, CA with her husband of 32 years, two rescue cats, Poose and Kitty and their adorable puppy Gidget. Together they have raised two beautiful women.
