Hi, I’m Jenn Alvin! I’m a multi-disciplinary maker who loves to learn new ways of making things — taking classes, watching videos, and trying stuff out on my own. Knitting, spinning yarn, sewing clothing, and leather-working are some of the disciplines I work in. Many of my projects use all sorts of reclaimed and recycled items.
I’ve been knitting since 2001, and took up spinning yarn in 2019. I almost always have yarn and needles in my bag as a “fidget project.”
I tend to mentally reverse-engineer everything I see, and it often manifests itself into ambitious projects.
When presented with an opportunity, I ask myself, “When will I get the chance to do this again?” and jump into the adventure.
Challenging myself with kitchen sink dishes and wacky foods. I’ve also been learning brewing and winemaking.
I love to sew, knit, and make accessories. Clothing modification is one of my specialties.
