Debbie is the author of the New York Times–bestselling Stitch ’n Bitch series of knitting and crocheting books. She is also the Editor in Chief of BUST Magazine. Debbie began knitting when she was only six years old, but it took thirty years before she actually learned to enjoy it. Once she became obsessed, in 1999, she started a Stitch ’n Bitch group in a cafe in NYC’s Lower East Side, and it became the inspiration for thousands of Stitch ’n Bitch groups that have formed all across the country in the years since. She has written five books in the Stitch ’n Bitch series and has her own line of yarn, Stitch Nation by Debbie Stoller. She lives in Brooklyn with one crazy cat, 2 weird dogs, and way too much yarn.
