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!

Norah will walk us through her newest book, Norah Gaughan's Twisted Stitch Sourcebook filled with beautiful images of the stitches and garments, while she explains the many ways to use the book, no matter your skill level. As a bonus we'll see photos from Norah's first issue of Vogue Knitting as editor in Chief. We think you'll be thrilled with the expanded size range and relaxed photography.

The author of Knitting Nature and Norah Gaughan’s Knitted Cable Sourcebook. Her newest labor of love, a sourcebook of twisted stitches is available now!

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.
