All About Marly

Marly Bird

Marly Bird is the National Spokesperson for Red Heart Yarns, and a crochet and knitting designer, teacher, podcaster, and blogger. Her well-known Yarn Thing podcast was the first crochet podcast on iTunes and is the only one to feature both knitting and crochet equally. Marly has a YouTube channel packed full of tips and techniques, pattern tutorials, and yarn reviews for both crocheters and knitters.

Marly’s grandmother taught her to crochet in 1999, and a close friend taught her to knit in 2004. Marly loves both crafts, and her video tutorials, designs, and podcast are split between them.

Marly became the National Spokesperson for Red Heart Yarns in 2016, and travels across the country to share more about Red Heart. Look for her at national crafts consumer shows and other personal appearances, find her designs at, and follow her video tutorials on her YouTube channel.

Marly regularly attends consumer knit and crochet conferences throughout the country. If you would like to take a class and meet Marly see below for the shows she will be attending.
