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 events, 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 A Knitter's Gallery of Mitered Squares: 45 Unique Designs in Color, Texture and Lace.
