Anita Osterhaug was the editor of Handwoven magazine and the editor of Weaving Today through 2016. She has been devoted to all things fiber since her first embroidery project at age eight. While studying history at Reed College, it dawned on her that knitting produced things to wear, and a yarn stash was born. In parallel with her writing career, her historical interests, neo-Luddite tendencies, and fiber-mania led her to learn handspinning and weaving. From tapestry to twill, she loves every aspect of weaving and fiber. When not weaving, spinning, or knitting, she can be found writing or reading about, teaching, or demonstrating fiber arts. She lives in Hillsboro, Oregon with husband, critters, and a slightly embarrassing array of looms, spinning wheels, and other fiber accoutrements.
