Connect and Follow

Amie Palmer is a lifelong fiber arts enthusiast. She believes there are two types of projects: the ones that require concentration and those meant for meeting up to chat with fellow knitters and crocheters. She always has at least one of each on her needles and hooks.

She graduated from Georgia Tech with a Masters in Electrical Engineering. She interned for Lawrence Livermore National Lab before working in telecom for ten years. During this time, she found that basic math and breaking patterns into simple chunks are the best way to take the guess work out of projects.

Based in Durham, NC, Amie loves teaching for local yarn shops and regional fiber festivals, as well as Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, and Durham Arts Council. She has taught at Southeastern Animal Fiber Festival, New York Sheep and Wool Festival and Carolina Fiber Festival. She is a TKGA member who is also a TKGA Certified Knitting Judge. When not teaching, she is a technical editor for knit and crochet patterns.

Amie’s favorite projects include custom-fitted sweaters, brioche knitting, and exploring the technical side of knitting and crochet. Her sweaters and colorful felted purses have won awards at the North Carolina State Fair and Southeastern Animal Fiber Festival.
