Bitsy Cohen has been knitting and designing knitwear for over 35 years. Her knitting patterns and articles on knitting techniques have appeared in Yarn Magazine and she recently began collaboration on a knitting book with her sister, also an avid knitter. In addition to her work with texture and color in felting, she is an avid lace knitter whose work has been featured in The Knitting Guild of America’s annual fashion show. Originally from Chicago, Bitsy called central New Jersey home prior to moving to the Lehigh Valley in 2004. A fiber fanatic, Bitsy boasts of owning a yarn collection that includes over 8,000 skeins. It is from this “stash” that she finds the inspiration to create her unique bags. More recently, her art has focused on color, both in fiber and in glass. This has led Bitsy to develop the colorways she uses to handdye fiber as well as setting up a glass working studio of her own.
