Antje Gillingham grew up in Germany and learned to knit at the age of eight. In 1982 she moved to the central coast of California, where she lived for the next 17 years. When her husband's job relocated the family to Tennessee, she rediscovered her infatuation with fiber and all that is knitting.
Antje is the author of three best-selling books and has published patterns in several knitting magazines.
Over the years, her travels have taken her all over the country, and along the way she has made many new friends who all share the same passion for knitting. It is these wonderful, like-minded souls who continue to inspire her to design, write and teach.
When she isn't traveling or teaching at a variety of knitting workshops, she can be found relaxing at home...with knitting in hand.
