Classic Elite Yarns




Susan Mills began working in the hand-knitting industry almost 20 years ago as a customer service representative for Classic Elite Yarns.

As an avid, self-taught knitter, she had worked in a yarn shop in the late 1980's to support her yarn habit. When she graduated from college she was thrilled to find a "real job" with a yarn company—Classic Elite. Since then, she went on to work as Creative Director for JCA, Inc. and Nashua Handknits/Westminster Fibers.

Over the years, she has been privileged to work with such masters as Kristin Nicholas and Norah Gaughan, as well as many other well known designers. Susan's designs have been published in Vogue Knitting, Interweave Knits, Knitters and other prominent knitting magazines.

She is thrilled to re-join Classic Elite and extend the artistic direction others before her have established, bringing a fresh design perspective to our passionate knitters and crocheters.
