Grace Bilbao is a fiber enthusiast currently living and working in Brooklyn. Originally from North Carolina, she graduated from North Carolina State University with a bachelors in Art & Design. Her interest in fibers began after being taught how to crochet by her Grandmother, and after what was an obsessive hobby became a meditative practice that she hopes to share with others. You can check out her and her work on instagram at @gracebilboo

Jessie Wayburn learned to crochet from her great-grandmother, grandmother, and aunt 31 years ago, she learned to knit from her mother 19 years ago, and she’s been making messes her whole life. She enjoys felting for its therapeutic aspects (stabby-stabby) as well as its artistic merits (fluffy-fluffy). She is a multifaceted artist with a background in theater, comedy, and music. You would think she would have used more of her stash during lockdown, but you’d think wrong. She has a dog named Susie Meyerson, after the manager character on Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, played by Alex Borstein. Susie is definitely Jessie’s manager.
