Mary Jo Harris

I live in Madison, WI and have been a teacher all of my adult life. I have formally taught knitting at various Sheep and Wool Festivals, Fiber Festivals, and Knit-In’s throughout the Midwest, in addition to a variety of venues in and around the Madison, WI area.

Over 10 years ago, I added Chair Caning classes to my teaching repertoire and have taught local classes in addition to classes at places like the WI Sheep and Wool Festival, Iowa Sheep and Wool Festival, Shepherd’s Harvest (in Minnesota), Missouri Fiber Retreat, and the Michigan Fiber Festival.

Under my designer name of Jo Harris, I design knitting patterns and have written a book entitled ‘Double Knitting – Inside Out’. A member of the Madison (WI) Knitters’ Guild, I love any opportunity to discuss anything and everything knitting or caning related.
