We even noshed on appetizers during our break – yummy! There is even talk of planning a Fall Stitching Cruise on the River – stay tuned for details!
In case you’re wondering what you can possibly do with the swatch that you will be making in Brandon Mably’s Persian Poppies Workshop, check out the Ravelry project gallery for the original pattern by Kaffe Fassett!
People have made vests, shawls, cardigans and more. Here’s one of my favorites:
Get motivated and inspired by acknowledged color master, Kaffe Fassett! Kaffe’s presentation will highlight works from his latest projects, including patchwork quilt, fabric, needlepoint, mosaic, painting and knitting designs. A tremendous amount of Kaffe’s inspiration comes from his travels, and his lecture is designed to empower and inspire his audience to create and develop their “mind’s eye.” Audiences leave invigorated – entranced by Kaffe’s sense and use of color, they are ready to try it themselves! The slide show and lecture lasts approximately 45 minutes, followed by a question and answer session and book signing.
Attendance Maximum 300
Enjoy a one-day creative knitting workshop with Brandon! This workshop is for knitters who are interested in sharpening their color observation in design and yarn selection. Brandon will give an introduction to the Persian Poppy Design (see swatches in photo). Students will work from the Persian Poppy graph provided. Brandon will demonstrate the methods of carrying yarn in Fair Isle and in intarsia knitting and will work with students as they apply the techniques to their own knitting. Attention will be paid to color, texture and pattern, and everyone will work on a swatch using at least 12 colors. At the end of the day, Brandon will provide feedback to everyone.
