Sharon Zientara is the 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.
