Leslie Ann Bestor has been involved with fibers since childhood, learning to sew and craft from her mother. She moved on to crochet and then knitting after college. Her passion for knitting led her to begin a custom knitwear business, Carpe Yarnum Designs, selling garments and patterns. She has been published in Interweave Knits, Interweave Crochet and the book Kids, Kids, Kids. After coming to WEBS, Leslie Ann realized a lifelong dream to follow in her grandmother’s footsteps and become a weaver. In addition to teaching, she creates designs for WEBS and has been published in Handwoven magazine. In her ‘spare’ time she knits socks while watching her daughter Cady compete in gymnastics meets.
