Lora Millar is a former local yarn shop owner. She recently closed her yarn shop, Knit, after 10 years in business to concentrate on new ventures and family. Describing herself as obsessed by fibre, Lora’s mission in life is to feed her addiction with all aspects of fibre crafting including spinning, weaving, knitting and crochet. Lora loves passing on her knowledge and particularly loves working with children, hoping to spark their interest. Lora lives in Lismore with her ever-suffering hubby Con, three children Dina, Durahn and Kye, and their four dogs. Contact Lora at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow her on Facebook, her blog and Ravelry where she is known as Leftfootdaisy.
Deirdre McArdle is a former technology journalist, and is currently working as a copywriter. For the past eight years Deirdre has been a member of the Knit Midleton knitting group, which was held weekly at Lora’s yarn shop, Knit. During that time she has built up a massive stash of yarn, which has invaded every nook and cranny of her house. Aside from knitting and occasionally crocheting, Deirdre loves sewing, paper craft and more recently, soap making. Deirdre lives in Midelton with her husband and two dogs and has an unhealthy obsession with Pinterest and the correct use of the apostrophe.
