with Kristyna & Tricia

Tricia teaches several courses at Michigan Fine Yarns, and also curates many of our online and special events. As a professor, Tricia has been instructing students for more than twenty years. At Michigan Fine Yarns, she combines that in-person and online instructional experience with her passion for yarn and knitting, which she’s been using as her mindfulness practice since grad school. Her favorite projects are ones that teach a new skill, or introduce a new “must have” knitting notion for that occasional retail therapy. Find her in store or online, and she’ll help you show off your knits so others can see the joy and peace they bring you!

Kristyna grew up in a passionately creative household! Her best friend and mother Miriam always had an art or cooking project in the works and always involved Kristyna. Taught how to knit by her mother at a young age, Kristyna dabbled in knitting as a kid. Nearly 20 years ago in college she discovered the book which reignited her interest in knitting, “Stitch ‘n Bitch: The Knitter’s Handbook” by Debbie Stoller. This edgy and exciting book made knitting look so cool and trendy. The book inspired Kristyna to make garments for herself. She dabbled throughout college, making fun, simple, projects.... but after college she got busy with marriage...and kids...and graduate school...and work...so she forgot about knitting for a few years. When Kristyna turned 30 her mom surprised her with a sweater’s quantity of Malabrigo Rios (in the color “cloud sunshine”) and encouraged her to pick up her needles again. Kristyna fell in love with the yarn and hasn’t stopped knitting sweaters since. Kristyna now considers herself a “Lifestyle Knitter”, knitting has become her creative outlet and favorite method of stress relief. As a trained marriage and family therapist, devoted wife and proud mother of three, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Kristyna’s specialty is helping you fix your **knitting** mistakes (in person and online). Kristyna also looks forward to teaching courses in garment construction and design, she can’t wait to see you wearing your knits!
