    Carson Demers

Pattern and structure have always fascinated Carson. He sought to understand and participate in them at a young age through crochet, knitting, and dance. Later he came to realize them through human anatomy, physiology, and movement leading him to becoming a physical therapist nearly 30-years ago. Carson devoted himself to the further study of ergonomics after his own experience with repetitive stress injuries left hime unable to knit or treat patients for 2 years. Carson brings over 20-years of ergonomic experience with a goal of demystifying ergonomics, and teaching knitters, spinners, and other textile workers root-causes of their discomfort, speed, efficiency or lack thereof. Carson’s book Ergo I Knit can be purchased on his website www.ergoiknit.com
