About the Author

Elizabeth Kollmar is 11 years old and lives in a home where creativity and crafting are a constant! She learned basic knit and crochet techniques at a very young age and even designed her own knitting piece when she was 6! Eventually, Elizabeth learned enough about fiber arts to begin explaining and demonstrating the process of preparing wool at her local historical society while her mother demonstrated spinning. When rubber band crafting became popular, Elizabeth was interested, but found that working on a rubber band loom just wasn't for her. With a bit of experimentation and creativity, though, she was able to find a way to make her own rubber band projects without a loom! Using her knowledge of crochet techniques, Elizabeth started working with a double-ended crochet hook to put her rubber band pieces together. Using her unique techniques, Elizabeth was soon creating her own patterns and designs for rubber band projects! She even developed a special vocabulary for her techniques so she could easily explain to others how to recreate her designs!Elizabeth lives with her parents and two siblings on the east coast of the United States. When she's not working on her next rubber band project, she enjoys reading, music, photography, and activities like horseback riding, bicycling, and climbing ropes and trees!
