Join us at the June meeting to learn about what inspires indie dyer and pattern designer Annie Modesitt.
A native of Ohio, I taught myself to knit at age 25 before a move from NYC to Texas. The Texas tenure didn’t last, but knitting did, and upon my return to the NY area I began knitting for other designers and designing for major knitting magazines.
My work has appeared in Interweave Knits, Vogue Knitting, Knitters Magazine, Cast On, Family Circle Easy Knitting, McCalls Needlework and many international fiber & yarn oriented publications.
I teach worldwide and across the United States. I knit using the Combination Method and believe that there truly is no wrong way to knit. I live in St Paul, MN with my husband, kids and assorted pets.
Please join us on Tuesday, July 19 at the Textile Center from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. for catered treats and a special presentation from local yarnbomber Knitteapolis!
We will meet in our usual spot for optimal seating/shelter.
Food will be catered by Lunds & Beyerlys and falls on the side of "heavy appetizer" rather than "full meal." (This is even more so the case for those with special dietary needs, though there will be some options.)
In addition to speaking about yarnbombing Knitteapolis is allowing us to contribute to an exciting new project. See our Ravelry thread for more information and for free patterns. Contributions can be made in advance, though some yarn and simple patterns will be available the night of as well.
Hope to see you there!
