About Judy

I’ve been knitting, crocheting, embroidering and sewing since I was in high school, then got futher involved creative arts as a sculptor in Soho, an historic area of New York City where artists settled in the 1960s.
During the burgeoning “‘women’s movement,” I went to law school and began work as a lawyer with domestic violence victims. All the while making pottery and then teaching yoga. Much of this was placed on hold in the 1980s and early 90s, when I was appointed to direct the New York State Commission on Child Support, where I worked with judges, lawyers and community members to improve the child support laws in New York state. Next I became a judge (who would have thought?).
Now I can get back to my art, creating textile landscapes, jewelry, and passing on my expertise in the stitching arts. This is waaay more fun.
My goal in teaching is to give you the skills you need to become independent and creative with your knitting and to derive pleasure from the process. I love working with students of all ages and abilities.
