A note from Ruth:

I started knitting and crafting at the age of seven in my home country of Switzerland.  In 1988, after backpacking around the world, I was fascinated by the sled dogs and settled in Alaska. I'm considered a "sourdough".  My passion with qiviut began in 2004 and to this day it is my favourite fiber to craft with. My hobbies are camping and exploring Alaska's backcountry with my spouse, two dogs, and two horses.
