Heidi (Schmidt) Cote - I was born and raised in Westfield and learned to knit as a child. I am primarily self-taught with the assistance of my patient and loving “instructors” - my older relatives. These wonderful talented individuals mentored me and continue to provide me with assistance when needed (although we now have the Internet and YouTube videos)! Knitting has been a lifelong pleasure for me, and I hope you will find it just as rewarding. I look forward to meeting you!
