Binka has been knitting since she was a child and continues to knit (almost) every day. She became involved with The Knitting Guild Association (TKGA) when she enrolled in the Master Hand Knitting program in 2005 and became a Master Knitter in 2007. She joined the Master Hand Knitting Committee in 2007 and in 2009 became a Co-Chair. She still continues with those responsibilities, even though she attained Emeritus status in 2018.
Binka wrote the Knitting 911 series of articles for Cast On as well as many "On Your Way to the Masters" articles. She is currently writing the Skill Building and Confident Beginner articles and patterns for Cast On. She has taught at TKGA conferences, teaches the Taming Tension correspondence course, as well as a number of Mini-Courses. She is on the Board of TKGA and is Vice President of Education.
When Binka is not involved in knitting, she and her little dog, Rascal volunteer for Foothills Caring Corps, in Carefree. Binka and Rascal are a registered pet therapy team and they bring smiles and joy to senior citizens with every visit.
