Her Bio:

In Sweden, where I was born, knitting and sewing was part of the weekly curriculum in 3rd grade. That’s where it all started for me. It has been a joyful hobby throughout my life, and after years of working with my husband in our Software Company, and children all grown up, I decided to take my love for textiles to the next level. I’m thrilled to be part of the Plymouth Team, and surround myself with people that share my passion. Weaving, cooking, baking and gardening also have a place in my heart.

You can find Britt-Marie on Ravelry. 

Here are some of her most recent projects:
