ABOUT KATE PRESTON
Kate Preston has been an active member of the knitting community since she began knitting ten years ago. In 2010, she founded a small knitting school in her hometown, teaching over 100 women to knit. Her comprehensive series of lessons enable newcomers to progress into more advanced knitters over the course of twelve months.

Kate designed and knitted a wool swimsuit that was worn by supermodel Kate Upton in the 2013 Swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated magazine. Upton modeled the unique swimsuit in the first ever fashion photo shoot on the continent of Antarctica. Ms. Preston’s work was also featured in Martha Stewart American Made and in 2012, she was invited with her knitting students to attend a filming of the Martha Stewart Show in New York. In addition, Ms. Preston's custom, knitted accessories were sold in the 2013 Trunk Shows of New York fashion designer Daryl K.

Kate heads the local chapter of Care to Knit, a non-profit organization that donates hand-knitted items to veterans’ hospitals, children’s hospitals and shelters. In addition, she partners with local schools and non-profit organizations to plan fundraising events where the attendees take lessons and support worthy causes. Ms. Preston is also an active member of The Knitting Guild Association and was invited to teach two courses at its 2014 national conference.

Kate's custom handknits and knitting patterns have been selling on Etsy since 2011. She is working to earn her designation as a master knitter, and she lives in New York with her husband and four sons.
