Patterns to take knitting beyond the ordinary
The mission of Jackie Erickson-Schweitzer (Jackie E-S), owner of HeartStrings FiberArts, is to instruct and inspire knitters in making their own heart-felt creations. Since 1995, Jackie E-S has been designing and publishing skill-building, comprehensive, knitter-friendly pattern instructions. The patterns are yarn-brand independent for the knitter's creative freedom, and to benefit shops in promoting HeartStrings patterns with yarns they already stock.
