Beth Major

Beth Major was born and raised in Sault Ste. Marie, a small city surrounded by the Great Lakes and nestled in the forests of Northern Ontario, Canada. After living in many places, she now calls a faery cottage surrounded by the woods outside Fredericton, New Brunswick her home.

Beth learned to crochet and knit at a very young age from her Grandmother and while the needles confounded her, she really got hooked on crochet. Influenced by her upbringing in Northern Ontario and her new home in rural Atlantic Canada, her designs tend to trend toward items for cool and chilly weather wear, home coziness and simple lacy whimsy. She is a certified crochet teacher through the Craft Yarn Council of America and shares the love of crochet with whomever wants to learn.
