June MKG Meeting
June 20 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
6:30pm CT Trunk Show – Bumblebee Acres Fiber Farm
7:00pm CT Main Presentation – Joining Yarns: Tie or Die? with Kate Atherley
Oh no! You’re coming to the end of your yarn! What to do? We’ll talk about all sorts of different ways to attach the next ball of yarn – from splicing to (gasp!) tying knots. It’s easier than you think and you’ll be equipped to know which technique is best used for which yarn, and what type of fabric. We’ll also address stripes and colorwork, where you might need to have two attached at the same time.
KATE ATHERLEY is an internationally known knitting author, teacher, and editor. Her latest book, Custom-Fit Hats is her ninth, and the fourth in a series on customizing projects for perfect fit and style; it joins works on shawls, socks, and mittens. She’s also the co-founder and publisher of Digits & Threads, an independent, member-supported online magazine about Canadian fibre- and textile arts, crafts and industry. The combination of her university degree in mathematics, professional experience in software development and usability, and training in garment and fashion design give her a unique perspective. She lives in Toronto with her husband and their rescue dog Winnie.
