Author bio notes: Priscilla Gibson-Roberts

Priscilla Gibson-Roberts has published five previous books and many magazine articles, all with the goal of preserving textile traditions. Her work appears regularly in Interweave Knits, and has also been presented in Spin-Off and Knitter’s (where she was spinning editor for thirteen years). Her books include Knitting in the Old Way: Designs & Techniques from Ethnic Sweaters (Nomad Press, 2004); Simple Socks, Plain & Fancy (Nomad Press, 2004 and 2001); High-Whorling: A Spinner’s Guide to an Old-World Skill (Nomad Press, 1998); Ethnic Socks and Stockings (XRX, 1995); Salish Indian Sweaters (Dos Tejedoras Fiber Arts, 1989); and Knitting in the Old Way (Interweave Press, 1985). With a graduate degree in clothing and textiles from Purdue University, Priscilla has taught many workshops and college-level courses. Library Journal says Priscilla has “led the current revival of techniques used by traditional fiber artisans.” She lives in Colorado.
