Knitting and crochet have been a lifelong passion for Val Pierce, her father having taught her to knit at the tender age of five. Having worked for many major yarn companies and various well-known designers, she decided it was time to branch out and begin making her own designs. She is the author of the forthcoming Love... Knitting to be published by New Holland and her work is published regularly in knitting magazines. She also teaches knitting and crochet to adults and children.

Val Pierce's passion for knitting began when her father taught her to knit at the age of five. Later in life she began home knitting for yarn manufacturers, and since then she has made a huge range of items, from evening dresses to teddy bears. She later began designing items of her own, and before long Val's designs were appearing regularly in national knitting and crochet magazines. She also teaches knitting, as well as a range of other needlecrafts, to both adults and children. Val lives and works in Shropshire.
