As a young farm girl in western Minnesota, Ian Baldry developed an interest in machinery while helping with the annual wheat harvest. Though always enamored of fiber arts, she eventually chose a career as a mechanical engineer. Several years ago, Ian found a way to combine the two passions after acquiring her first knitting machine.
