About Tiana St. James
Tiana St. James, an Upper Valley native, has been an Interpreter at Billings Farm and Museum for seven years. She loves helping others learn about the history of anything and everything, particularly domestic arts. Tiana’s love of knitting and crochet led her to discover the fascinating and full world of fiber arts, and she has participated in all stages of the wool and flax to linen processes. Through her association with the Aker Fiber Farm in Enfield, NH, she has developed and taught classes for a variety of ages on a wide array of textile crafts. Tiana has been known to knit in such unique situations as hurricane force winds and on New England hikes. When she is not crafting, she enjoys gardening and cooking, often while listening to books. In recent years, she has also embraced the role of the fairy godmother to the Billings fairy gardens.
