Jillian laughs a lot

Jillian laughs a lot


Jillian Moreno is passionate about making things with handspun yarn. She is perpetually curious and loves to dissect creative processes. She loves to inspire other spinners to think a little differently.

Jillian is the editor of Knittyspin and Ad Manager and Catalyst of Knitty Magazine. This means she is often the brains behind the exciting new ideas implemented at Knitty and is a key part of the success the magazine has enjoyed over the past 12 years. 

She is a regular contributor to Ply Magazine, and currently sits on the editorial board.

Jillian has been a knitter forever, and a spinner almost as long. She knits, stitches, crochet and sometimes weaves with her handspun yarn. She touches fiber everyday.

She may or may not be working on a spinning book for Storey Publishing to be published in 2016.

She likes vintage dresses, British murder mysteries and if you ever go into a bookstore with her, don't expect to leave empty handed.

She lives in a house well insulated with fiber and books in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
