FIBERSIDE CHATS

Join Live Online Chats with Some of Fiber's Most Exciting Creators

In this time of staying home and crafting, let’s take a minute to meet some of the very people that inspire us.

In collaboration with several other yarn shops, we will be taking part in one hour Zoom meetings with a host of well known designers and makers which gives us a chance to learn more about them.

While this isn’t a traditional class, it will be well worth your while to tune in!

There is a new procedure to purchase tickets for Fiberside Chats. Click on the artist and you will be redirected to Longmont Yarn Shop. Find Bella Filati on the menu and add to cart!

Jenny Schu
Feb 18 – 6pm EST

In this Fiberside Chat Jenny Schu will be sharing her weaving journey, beginning in college where her fiber artwork incorporated hand dyeing yarns for the draft of a piece all the way through to fixing & adapting mistakes for expertly finished pieces. Her early interest in the unique structures of Double Weave Pick Up and Theo Moorman Inlay have continued to be the focus for her creativity. Jenny will do a live demo using the Double Weave piece currently on her loom and talk about her design process, personal inspiration and how her weavings start with a concept which eventually comes to fruition. Whether you’re an experienced weaver or have a newly developed interest there’s something for everyone in this Chat!

This is a live one time Zoom Event on Thursday, February 18th at 6:00pm Eastern, 5:00pm Central, 4:00pm Mountain, 3:00pm Pacific.

Your ZOOM Link will be sent the evening before and about 1 hour before the event. Check your spam filter if you do not see it.

Sarah Soloman
Mar 7 – 6pm EST

Sarah Solomon started knitting as an adult fueled by a passion to knit sweaters.  A self-styled “sweater evangelist” she now works to bring more knitters into the sweater-knitting fold through her patterns and teaching.  With a background in woven construction and dressmaking, Sarah brings a love of details and fine finishing to her hand knitting designs and enjoys creating and teaching techniques that are simple to master but yield beautiful, long-lasting results.  One of her favorite techniques to share is a double-knit button band with self-reinforced buttonholes that lend a refined look and long life to a hand-knit cardigan.  Sarah will demonstrate the basics of the technique and show samples that make use of it.  She’ll also present an overview of her work to illustrate her approach to designing knitwear that combines elements of fashion, textile and applied design.

Sarah Solomon is a knitwear designer, writer and teacher based in New York City.  Her patterns and articles have appeared in Interweave Knits, Knitscene, knit.wear, Pom Pom Quarterly, and Vogue Knitting, and in collections by yarn companies large and small. She divides her time between designing and teaching and has also recently joined the editorial team of Vogue Knitting magazine.  Her interests include everything from traditional techniques to colorwork to fine finishing, with a particular emphasis on garment construction.  She is also an avid sewer and spinner and loves handwork in many forms.  In her design work, Sarah creates garments and accessories from exceptional yarns that are knittable, wearable and designed to last.  Find her patterns on Ravelry and follow her work at www.intothewool.wordpress.com or on Instagram as @intothewool.
