Julie teaches at yarn shops around the country and locally at A Verb For Keeping Warm and Knitterly in Petaluma.  She offer knitters of all levels a wide variety of classes, including felted work, custom-designed sweaters, and finishing techniques.
In her own words...  While studying German in Salzburg, Austria, I learned to knit at a shop close to the Abbey where scenes from “The Sound of Music” were filmed. I have always suspected the women in the knitting shop moonlighted as extras in the movie; they resembled each other in so many ways. I enjoy saying I was taught by knitting nuns… even if they weren’t, really.By the time I returned to the United States, I was obsessed with knitting and design and soon founded a small cottage industry. I had knitters in Ireland using English yarn and my original creations were being sold at Nordstrom, Henri Bendel, Mark Shale, and a number of small boutiques across the country. My main focus, however, has been on teaching knitting and designing for knitters via knitting magazines and yarn company publications.
