On today's episode of the Craft Industry Alliance podcast we're talking about going from blogger to author and teacher with my guest, Anne Weil.

Anne is the creator of the blog Flax & Twine and a designer of patterns and projects that have been published by Martha Stewart, Design*Sponge, Elle Decor, Real Simple, and the Huffington Post. The author of Weaving Within Reach (affiliate link) and  Knitting Without Needles (affiliate link), Anne teaches classes nationwide at art retreats and local yarn stores and online at and She lives in Denver, Colorado, with her family.

I was lucky to have Anne visit me in my studio for this interview while she was in town as part of her book tour. It's always especially nice to be able to record an interview in person.

Catch up with Anne on Instagram to see what's she's up to and visit her shop to browse all of her books, patterns, supplies, and kits.
