Kanda McKee has been knitting and crocheting since she was fourteen. Mostly self-taught she enjoys teaching others so they can enjoy the same sense of accomplishment that she feels every time she finishes a project.

 Paula McMenamy is a former schoolteacher and has also taught classes in several forms of needlework. She started knitting in high school and has conveniently forgotten how long ago that was.
