Mary Link spent one summer of her childhood crazily sewing her own stuffed animals. Together with her friend Amy, she destroyed many yards of fabric in the quest to make every critter imaginable. When they ran out of stuffing, they used paper towels and toilet paper. Rumor has it that there are still yards of fabric at her childhood home filled with squirrel-shaped cut-outs. Mary is an educator, artist, wife, and mom. She lives in St. Paul, Minnesota, with her family.
