After I completed a full copy edit of Stephanie’s first book, Beautiful at ANY Size, she asked me to help her rework the book into a second version that could help women in smaller bodies as well as plus-sized readers.

“Meet the Makers” Blog Feature Series

Collaboration with 19 indie yarn dyers (and counting!)
