Discussion for  a new name for what used to be the Knitting Olympics

Pan-Athenic Games?

Mother Knows Best:(25:03)

From KrisLuvsWool:

“I learned to sew on a sewing machine when I was younger. We purchased patterns, cut out the fabrics, and sewed it all up… so I have had some rudimentary experience with sewing, but would still consider myself a beginner. That said, as a knitter who has gained an understanding of fit and ease, etc., I’ve got an interest in sewing garments again, but am a little overwhelmed about where to start and how FAR to jump into sewing and drafting patterns. I’m working on padding out my dress form to be more of a real “double”-- but at what stage should I bother trying to make a sloper? A Moulage? Where would you recommend getting started. I checked at our local CC but it’s not offering classes of that nature; and even with Craftsy, I’ve been overwhelmed by the choices that don’t seem curated to guide me into levels of “making”. How does someone “level up” with sewing?”

Kelly Wearstler's MasterClass and a take away was “let your collections be part of your decor.”

So see your house as a living biopic, with lighting in the role of director (“Think about it as a way to guide the eye around a room,” she says), the palette playing the supporting cast of characters (“You need to keep in mind the way colors communicate with each other. There should be a natural dialogue”), and your passions and collections, of course, as the star.

The Lemonade Shop is currently run out of Castle Rock, CO by Heather Rhoads.   She says currently because she is a Chicago girl at heart and misses the city so much, so she is sure there is a move to be had at some point. Heather fell in love with color at New Trier High School in Winnetka, IL where they had an amazing art department and after that she attended a private design school in Chicago where she left with honors. There could be a long drawn out story about how she got started dyeing yarn but it's really simple, she loves big bold color, loves yarn and loves knitting and crocheting. Heather is also an avid lover of cake. 

Heather’s husband Christopher works for the shop full time so they are a true family run business. Heather and Chris met at work so they are used to working together, a question they get asked all the time. They have been at this for about 7 years and haven't killed each other yet, so they are calling it a win! Their daughter Grace is in High School and can be found helping with making the new stitch markers they recently added to their shop.

It's not very riveting, but they love it!

Lisa has her own vision of the world and the colors in these hand dyed mill spun yarns are from deep in her imagination or from just outside, in her gardens, where Mother Nature gets it right.
Three decades of taking fleeces through all forms of preparation have led to the conclusion that life is too short to spin with second rate fibers and so everything that you find within this section is pure heaven to spin. From long wools to downy cashmere, you can feel confident that they are the best that can run through your fingers.
