Fiber Artist Friday: Debbie Macomber

debbie mDebbie Macomber is not, as the previous Fabulous Fiber Artists were, a designer. However she is a knitter and has done much for the knitting community; and as I’m sure her fans will agree, she most definitely is an artist.

Debbie Macomber is an author who writes a number of romances, including the blossom street series, which is based in a yarn shop.

Not only this, she started the Leisure Arts company, which produces knitting patterns and notions and she gives the proceeds of the company entirely to charity.

She also has her own knitting club on her website (click here). In a interview I saw recently she remarked that it was her skill at knitting that gave her the confidence to try writing. Here’s to knitting as an artistic aide!
