Gwen Bortner is a Craft Yarn Council Certified Teacher teaching at venues throughout the country, the author of Entree to Entrelac and the past Interim Executive Director of The National Needlearts Association.
Gwen's passion is teaching. Whether teaching through the local community education program, at a national knitting convention, or at the local yarn shop, meeting new people and sharing the love of knitting is one of her greatest joys.
Gwen's teaching philosophy can be summed up in the following quote, "My job is to make the students' toolbox bigger. If all you own is a hammer, everything looks like a nail! I believe there are lots of 'right' answers. The more options you have, the more skills you develop, and a better knitter is the result. My mantra is 'knitting is fun'. If you add something to your knitting toolbox and have fun doing it, then I consider that a successful class."
