Faina Goberstein is an independent knitwear designer, author, and professional teacher based near San Francisco, CA. Taking an early retirement from a long career as a math professor gave Faina a chance to let her creativity and long-time passion for knitwear design become a second profession. Faina's interest in a wide assortment of knitting techniques and stitch patterns is evident in her designs and topics of her inspirational classes. Faina is a great communicator and energetic teacher who cares about her students and focuses on sharing her knowledge and excitement about the craft. She teaches at Vogue Knitting Live, Interweave Yarn Fest, and various venues such as guilds and yarn shops around the country and abroad.
