A graduate of RISD, Tanis lives in Fairfax, VA with her Mechanical Engineer husband and two children.

Despite the fact that Sarasota, FL doesn’t have ideal knitwear weather, Barbara loves living and knitting in the South. Self-proclaimed as “a bit silly and a bit nerdy”, this often translates into her designs. When it comes to the art world, her love for the Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements shines through with intricate stitch work and swooping shapes. When not knitting she splits her free time between sailing and playing video games with her son. She is the author of two knitting books - Mosaic & Lace Knits and Big Yarn, Beautiful Lace Knits. She also has a catalog of independently published patterns as well as having patterns published in various magazines and books.

Carissa Browning lives and knits in the Dallas, Texas area, where she has accepted the futility of stitching cozy woolen sweaters and has perhaps overcompensated with a three month supply of hand knit socks. Her favorite fiber animals are banthas as their fleece provides protection from the suns without sacrificing breathability in warm climates.

Meghan Regan lives in Maryland with her husband and puppy, loves to knit and spend time with her family. In 2016, she started her own hand-dyed yarn business: Bad Wolf Girl Studios. In these 4 years it has grown from dyeing yarn to include pattern writing with a emphasis on color work knitting. As an Art Major grad, creating a picture out of yarn completely stole her heart! Being able to be included in the First Official Star Wars Knitting book with a color work piece is an absolute dream. She has enjoyed this experience so much and plans to continue designing!

Trysten Molina is the dyer behind Dragon Hoard Yarn & the designer behind Dragon Hoard Designs. She lives in Utah with her husband and three dogs. While enjoying the fiber arts, and knitting, she also delves into nerdy fandoms on a daily basis. Star Wars, Knitting The Galaxy was the perfect opportunity to combine her love of cosplay, and her everyday excitement of the fiber arts. The Padme Battle Wrap was her favorite costume piece in the entire series, and she was so excited to tackle the project. She hopes to create more fandom based designs in the future. Currently, you can find that most of the colors of Dragon Hoard Yarn are inspired by books and her favorite characters across all fandoms. All other patterns are found on www.Ravelry.com and www.ribblr.com , while all her yarn (including yarn for the Padme Battle Shawl) is found on www.dragonhoardyarnco.com . Follow her on Instagram at @dragon_hoard_yarn to get the first insight on what she’s working on next!
