Kim has been designing crochet patterns for nearly 30 years, with her designs and articles being featured in many magazines and books. She also is the owner of several web sites devoted to her crafting passion, as well as the author of numerous books and DVDs.

She started crocheting around the age of 8 or 9, while staying with her Grandmother. She learned to do a granny square first, and made a "hideous" granny square blanket as her first project. She had no idea that there were patterns when she started crocheting, so began designing her own patterns very early on. Now, she submits about 80 designs a year for publication!

"There isn't often a day when you won't find me without a crochet hook or my knitting needles in my hands! Turning these loves into a full-time career that fulfills my desire for creativity is like a dream come true."

Kim has authored 12 books, most of them in her favorite form of crochet -- Tunisian crochet. She started designing Tunisian patterns because there weren't many out there, and she could see all the possibilities. Tunisian crochet offers Kim more flexibility in her designing due to its unique look, which can mimic knitting or weaving, depending on the stitches used while still maintaining crochet's ease. Being able to combine these looks together in one project brings all needlework together and makes Tunisian crochet a favorite among many. Her latest books, The Ultimate Beginner's Guide to Tunisian Crochet and Tunisian Cables to Crochet, offer something for everyone from beginner to advanced.

You may often hear that Tunisian crochet is the "step-child" of knitting and crochet. "Not so," says Kim, "it's more like the best of both worlds!"

Kim's portfolio of her work can be found at KimGuzman.com. Or, you can follow her on her blog where she discusses the day-to-day activities of designing as well as her newly-found pastime of canning and preserving food.
