Trisha Malcolm’s life in needle crafts began at the age of four and has spanned summers knitting, sewing, crocheting, and embroidering while at the beach, backpacking around the world, and during academic years as a high school needlework teacher. An editorship at McCalls Needlework and Craft magazine led Trisha to a career in craft publishing. She worked as the Craft Editor at Family Circle magazine Australia and other publications before she took over the helm of Vogue Knitting in 1997. Her role at the company has expanded in the ensuing years, to encompass Knit Simple magazine, a book publishing division (publisher of the Stitchionary series, Knitopedia, and more), custom publishing, and stitching-themed events. Trisha lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her son.
