Joy Caldwell

Joy Caldwell has been a fiber enthusiast since a young age and has knitters and crocheters on both sides of her family. She learned to crochet when she was 8 from her Grandma Adams. Since then she has learned to knit (10 plus years) and spin (5 plus years), and enjoys learning new techniques. She is currently a stay-at-home mom and keeps busy doing general transcription, homeschooling her wonderful one and only child, running after three feisty dogs, and teaching at Yarn Durango.

When she is not crocheting, knitting, or spinning, she can often be found reading or watching something online about the subject. Her other interests include reading, playing the piano, hiking, biking, and gardening.
