My name is Alice Golden and like so many of the other Therm O Web team members, I’ve loved arts and crafts since I was old enough to hold a crayon. When my second child was born I left the corporate world and started working in the paper crafting industry. Since that time I’ve worked with several manufacturers and have had projects published in all the major crafts magazines as well as appearing in numerous idea books, catalogs, ads, trade show booths, as well as on QVC and HSN. I have also created and taught numerous classes both in the US and internationally. When I’m not busy creating something with paper, I enjoy cooking, gardening, traveling and restoring the circa 1768 farmhouse in Massachusetts where I live with my husband, three teenage sons, a dog and two cats.
Erin Yamabe has been a lover of paper and glue ever since she can remember! She is married and has two sweet and sassy little girls, who are the main subjects of her work. Her days are filled with field trips, room Mom events, spin classes, and taking care of her daughters. And she enjoys having her crafty time in the evenings. Her work can be seen in scrapbooking magazines, at CHA, on Scrapbook Soup, and on QVC UK. She enjoys teaching at her LSS, and is very happy to be designing on the TOW team! Their products are the best around!
Hello! My name is Amy Friend and I am a designer, quilter, sewer and
printmaker. I have been blogging about my creations since 2009. I
enjoy a wide variety of crafts but fabric and printmaking have been long
standing interests of mine. Currently, I am particularly enjoying
designing paper pieced patterns, modern quilt making, and hand printing
my own fabric designs. I have an Etsy shop where I sell my patterns,
fabric and an occasional sewn item. In addition to the Thermoweb design
team, I am also a Sizzix design team member, BasicGrey Fabric Design
Team member, and part of the Art Gallery Fabrics Fat Quarter Gang.
I have my BA in Art/Art History from Bates College and completed my MA
course work in Art History at the University of Delaware. I worked as a
collections curator of fine arts collections prior to saying home with
my three children ages 3, 7 and 10.
If I am not busy taking care of my family or sewing, you might find me

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to be here at Therm O Web. I currently live in North Carolina with my two adorable teenage kiddos, a wee hedgehog baby, and our adoptive Golden Retriever pup. I am the web director at a local landscape design and garden center, as well as a part-time writer and photographer. In my spare time, I love to go antiquing and thrifting, read, and of course, play with paper. I have been papercrafting for about a dozen years now. Love learning, and sharing, and I’m so excited to be a part of the Therm O Web Design Team.
My name is Jenifer Cowles and I live in a small town in Middleton, Idaho. I work in the IT Department for a small city by day and Scrap and Sew after the kiddos go to sleep by night. I have 3 cutie pies who give me tons to scrap about, Caleb (12), Madison (10 going on 16) and Hunter (6). I have been doing some sort of crafting my entire life and my day just doesn’t feel complete without making something. I love a challenge and can make just about anything. I am so excited to be working with Therm O Web, it is perfect for any type of project.
Hi there! I’m Andy Knowlton and I live in Utah with my husband and our two boys. I’ve always loved sewing and quilting and have been doing both for over 20 years. The fabric store was always one of my favorite places to visit, and I could spend hours there choosing my favorites and playing around with color combinations. I love to create and I try to make time each day doing something creative even if it’s just making Lego airplanes and crayon drawings with my boys.
I have been blogging about my ideas and projects since 2008. I enjoy teaching and sharing what I’ve learned with others and I love that through social media it is so easy to encourage and inspire each other as we create!
When I’m not working with fabric (or shopping for fabric) I enjoy camping, working in my garden, and testing new dessert recipes. I adore chocolate and almonds, taking afternoon naps, and the delicious smell of brand new books.

My name is Amanda Niederhauser, aka Jedi Craft Girl.
I am a Southern California girl who loves anything creative. I am the mom to 3 darling children and wife to one darling hubby! I have a passion for all things creative, chocolate, and cats!! I have been sewing since I was 12 when I learned I could sew my own shorts. I have been quilting for 15 years and have the fabric stash to prove it. I love sharing my ideas and giving my projects as gifts.
My name is Rebecca Keppel and I have been scrapbooking in the modern sense of the word since 2005. I have a daughter (age 7), a son (age 5) and a husband who is (for the most part) supportive of my scrapbooking. Although I have been “journaling” and taking tons of pictures my whole life, it wasn’t until I saw scrapbooking as whole that everything clicked for me and the obsession began! Besides recording memories and playing with fun product, I love to learn new techniques and learn more about photography. My favorite way to add texture and dimension to my projects is by sewing because I love the homemade, unique touch it adds. Besides making layouts, I love cardmaking and making gifts for family and friends.

Hi TOW fans! My name is Jen Chesnick, I go by Chez too. A long time family nickname that I married into and it just kind of took a life of its own. I sell cheese and crackers by day for Mondelez International and by night I craft, scrapbook, obsess over Pinterest & Facebook. Not only am I a social media addict I watch almost all reality TV it’s quite ridiculous. Remember The Real World? That’s where it ALL started. When I am not coped up in the house I like to travel, and don’t be shock but I love to camp. As long as I have wi-fi and a power strip all is well in the world.
I started scrapbooking in 2006 after seeing one of my Mothers scrapbooks. I’ve always been a pretty crafty gal. Some of my favorite childhood memories are of making crafts in Girl Scouts and patching together random fabric pieces making clothes. Paper crafting has turned into a full on obsession. I teach locally as well as work for a few manufactures. I am delighted and honored to be a part of the Therm O Web team. Thanks for having me I hope I inspire you!
Hi! I Katrina and I live in Midwest USA! I am currently owned by four Cardigan Welsh Corgis, who appear in my layouts from time to time (or A LOT of the time)! I’ve discovered as an adult that I love to create and craft. I was never the artsy type while growing up, unless you count cutting my doll’s hair. I have been scrapbooking since February 2009, when I decided to make a mini album for a friend. I discovered that I loved it! Well, let’s just say after that I went nuts with the paper, scissors, and glue. I love color, the more the better. To define my style is hard, as I do what makes me happy. I like to scrap everyday life and things, you never know what the subject of my project might be!

Hello! I’m Erin and I write a sewing, DIY, and lifestyle blog called Sewbon.
I’m a newlywed living in beautiful Colorado with my handsome husband, precocious standard poodle, and two unruly cats. I’m passionate about sewing, crafting, DIY-ing, traveling, and living life to the fullest! My family is my rock and my biggest support. They even let me dress them up in some of the items I make. Ever seen a poodle in a bowtie and a party hat? It’s beyond adorable!
I started sewing in 2011 after taking an Intro to Sewing Class. After turning a pile of fabric into a useful bag, I was hooked! I got a sewing machine later that year and haven’t stopped sewing since! I just love the feeling of accomplishment that comes with making something with my own hands.
When I’m not sewing or fabric shopping, I enjoying riding my bike, hiking, skiing, and reading.

I have a passion for sewing, quilting, fabric, knitting, felting, and drawing. I started blogging in 2010 for a little space of my own — for sharing my passion to create, to document what I learn & how I grow as an artistic person, and to have a special place to keep & share all my projects and those special moments that myself and my children create together throughout our days.
In addition to the Thermoweb Design Team, I am also a Riley Blake Design Team member, a member of the Janome Independent Design Team, and part of the Art Gallery Fabrics Fat Quarter Gang.
I’m so incredibly thankful to be a part of the online sewing community and feel so blessed to be able to make & seek out new artistic goals because of the support & encouragement I receive. Thank you!

My name is Molly Hanson. I am the daughter of an artist/musician father and an artist/sewer/crafter mother and grew up appreciating all things arts and crafts. I started quilting 10 years ago when my nieces and nephews started arriving and I wanted to make them heirloom gifts. I have always felt handmade is best. I taught myself and now specialize in free motion quilting and designing original quilts and other handmade items. I live in sunny Palm Springs with my better half Jeff and my two dogs Moose and Juki- who are like my kids. When I am not quilting I like to be in the woods camping, hiking and fishing. I look forward to this opportunity to work with Thermoweb as I am a big fan of their products and I love to design new things! Thank you!
