Toni Rexroat



Marcy Smith


Rachel Koon



Toni Rexroat is the editor for Crochet Me. Outfitted with several crochet hooks and surrounded by bins of yarn, she has been the assistant editor for Interweave Crochet magazine as well as PieceWork, Interweave Crochet's sister magazine. She was born and raised in a little town in Wyoming where she was exposed to wool and other fibers at an early age, and began crocheting in her early teens. Enjoying a wide variety of fibery hobbies from crochet and knitting to sewing, she is determined to learn to spin so she can crochet with her own yarn.

Marcy Smith is the editor of Interweave Crochet magazine. A lifelong crafter, she learned to crochet when she was 8. Other fiber loves include knitting, spinning and weaving. Before joining Interweave in late 2008, she worked as a crafts writer and blogger, as well as books-page editor, at the News & Observer in Raleigh. During a brief stint working in a yarn shop, she rocked a knitter's world by breaking the news to her that her heirloom knitted shawl was, in fact, crocheted. When not sleuthing out patterns, she hikes and bikes with her family in Cary, North Carolina.

Sarah Read


Sarah Read is the project editor for Interweave Crochet. She discovered yarn in her mid-teens, and has immersed herself in it ever since, occasionally to the extent that the word “intervention” gets thrown around. Crocheting, spinning, and knitting happen daily in Sarah’s world. She’s a bit of a geek. Before joining Interweave in 2009, she worked in libraries and bookstores. She blogs on Crochet Me and tweets her enthusiasm over new crochet designs @CrochetSarahR. She is delighted to be working in a field where she can combine her love of the written word with her love of all things fiber.

Sharon Zientara


Sharon Zientara is a former Assistant Editor for Interweave Crochet. She learned all forms of stitching at a young age from two very prolific crafters, her mother and grandmother, but is now on fire for crochet. For over twenty years, she blazed a trail of yarn and sweaters all across the Midwest, and worked on an alpaca farm here in Colorado. Before joining Interweave in 2011, she worked in retail clothing, but resolved not to buy anything she could knit herself. When not immersed in fiber, she acquires more cats, eats, cooks and has a love affair with great food, and watches as many films as she can.

Lindsay Jarvis



Lindsay Jarvis has always been fascinated by the arts, fashion, and crafting. Years ago, after picking up a pamphlet on how to knit, she suddenly became fixated on fiber and began learning as much as possible.  As a self-taught crocheter and knitter, she has endured many challenges along the way but enjoyed every moment!  As a transplant from Ohio, she enjoys the mountain air and picturesque views of Colorado.   When not tangled up in yarn, Lindsay loves to walk her two toy poodles, play around with vintage fashions, watch old movies, and attend ballet classes.
