Stephanie Alford has been fascinated by fiber all her life. A knitter since the age of 19, she joined a local spinning group near her home in rural England in her 20s, and then taught herself to dye after moving back to the States in her 30s. Along the way she learned a bit of weaving, a little crochet, and picked up a degree in Textiles and Clothing. Now the Dyer and Head SpaceCadet at SpaceCadet® Yarn, she has discovered that she was in training for her dream job all along.
