All Ears EarmuffsAlthough most of her career has been devoted to ready-to-wear fashion and textiles, she has more recently renewed her passion and professional interest in crafts. In 2007, Elaine created All Ears, to design and sell patent-pending do-it-yourself kits for knit and crochet earmuffs with (or without) built-in earphones and is expanding the company’s offerings into other products.

Elaine is accredited by the Craft Yarn Council of America as a knitting instructor and is a current member of The National Needlework Association.
