    who we are


    Cara Corey - Studio Director

    Cara Corey is a fiber artist based in St. Paul, MN. She started her career as a features writer for newspapers and magazines, but eventually realized she wanted to invest her time in her lifelong passion for crafting. Cara took over as Studio Director for Craft+Work in 2021. She also teaches many of our fiber arts classes. In her knitting and crochet classes, her goal is to build confidence in beginners by starting with chunky knit projects they can finish in one class. Once they’ve mastered that project, they can move on to smaller and smaller needles and yarn. She loves the moments when it clicks for students.
