About JaimeG


I’m a thirty-something publicist for Interweave, segment producer for Knitting Daily TV, and PR industry columnist for a couple craft business magazines. Don't tell the fiber artists at Interweave that jewelry-making is my real obsession, especially during the Christmas season! Now I just need to find the time to make jewelry year-round and I need to learn not to be such a perfectionist (OCD runs in my family – I must have a small strain of it).
