About the Author:

Cheryl Potter is a fiber artist and author, but is best known as the founder of Cherry Tree Hill Yarn. She has a BA from Middlebury College and an MFA from the University of Arizona.

After earning her Master of Fine Arts degree, Cheryl began dyeing yarn and designing garments an old milk house on her farm on Cherry Tree Hill in East Montpelier, Vermont.

There she was discovered by Interweave Press in 1987 and was featured that same year in Interweave Knits magazine. Since that time she has designed for all of the major knitwear publications and taught handpaint classes all over the world. She has authored numerous magazine articles, designed colorways and patterns and is the author of 6 books.

Her first book, Handpaint Country was published in 2000 and her yarn company went wholesale only that same year. Cheryl sold her farm and moved to the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, where she built the Cherry Tree Hill production facility.

Throughout the years, Cheryl s two daughters were very involved in the company, attending shows, helping with classes and dyeing yarns. Cheryl s oldest daughter, Jenna, started her own line of handpaints called Indie Dyer yarns. Together they starred in a DVD called The Superwash Manifesto. Cheryl s youngest daughter, Cheyenne, is beginning her own line of yarns as well, called Princess P Paints.

Review:

"Yarns of the Knitting Witches creates a whole world of mythology with knitting and it accoutrements at its center. Of course, we who are devotees of this craft already believe that it can save a world that is rushing toward disaster, but it took Cheryl to embody that faith in this highly ambitious undertaking.

The Broken Circle, first book in the trilogy, is a good read with a fast moving plot rolling smoothly through a rich and varied landscape. Its knitted accessories, detailed in the accompanying pattern book, should give ample inspiration, especially to those who have yet to become knitters.

I think the combo is a great idea and you definitely want the patterns separate because of the nature of patterns. Culinary mysteries can include recipes, but knitting patterns are more demanding." ----Anna Zilboorg author of Knitting For Anarchist

"Not only is The Broken Circle a well-plotted fantasy, but Potter adds swoon-worthy descriptions of yarns and knitting projects that will have any knitter reaching for her needles. There is much to explore in this richly detailed world, enhanced not only by charming illustrations but by the companion book of knitting patterns!" ----Jessica Day George
author of Tuesdays at the Castle

"The Potluck Yarn Trilogy is a brand-new way of looking at storytelling--the unique patterns and illustrations make this well-crafted tale." -- --Rachael Herron
