Carolyn Shattuck: “As far as I can remember, I have been working with wool. When I was a night nurse in Montreal, I decided to teach myself crocheting. It led to creating many afghans, pillows and even a bathing suit. Since I make books, I thought it would be exciting to combine both crocheting and book arts.”


New England Book Artists: “Carolyn shared that she was ‘born to make things’. Her life-long attraction to colors, textures, and patterns has been a focus in all the mixed media arts she has produced.”
