Janine Holmes has loved anything to do with arts and crafts ever since she can remember. She received a degree in constructed textiles, learning the skills necessary to design and operate Jacquard looms and industrial-knitting machines, eventually pursuing a career in print design. Having a hankering to get back to her yarn-based roots, she later embarked on a journey to learn the techniques of crochet, particularly amigurumi. After studying a few how-to videos and poring over pattern books, she designed her first soft toys—a pair of lambs named Lulu and Lollo. It was love at first sight. In 2012, Janine set up her Etsy shop under the name of Moji-Moji Design and went on to create crocheted animals and dolls for numerous books and magazines. She lives in Worcester, England, with her husband, three sons, four cats, and umpteen tons of yarn.
