I’m DrawFour Designs but you can call me Bridget. I operate out of Minnesota where, but for a brief and important stint in New York, I have spent my entire life. Minnesotans: we are born here, we live here, we freeze to death here.
I earned my B.A. in English at the University of Minnesota, hoping it would take me into the glamorous field of book editing. I ventured out to New York where I didn’t find a job as a wordsmith but did wind up working at a yarn shop. Paradigm shift! I wrote my first pattern while living on the East Coast and the designing bug was caught. Husband and I moved back to Minnesota and I went to work at StevenBe, the premier fiber arts studio and style lab in Minneapolis.
I find inspiration mainly in the yarns themselves. I love deep, saturated hues and I’m lucky to be surrounded by them every day. I also enjoy a wonderful partnership with Jade Sapphire Exotic Fibres.
