Jill Bigelow Suttell
Jill learned to knit at 10 years of age. After a 'teen years' break, she re-learned and has been knitting with a passion ever since. The first sweater she knit, she modified, and the next was her own design.

Five years as a yarn shop owner gave her a passion for teaching as well as designing. Jill has been an instructor at Stitches East, Knitter's Day Out, Knitter's Connection, Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet
Show, and many shops. Her designs can be found in Knitter's Magazine, Cast On, and Knitty. She is co-author of An Archive of Squares; 45 mitered squares with color, texture and lace.
