Fiberside Chat with Jennifer Miller and Alissa Barton
All About Working with Bamboo!!
Join us for this fun, informative & inspiring Fiberside Chat with yarn designer Jennifer Miller, of Theodora’s Pearls & Alissa Barton, The Knitting Fairy!
Learn from Jennifer all about the process of developing bamboo into fiber for knitting, crochet & weaving & how she creates fantastic and unique colorways for Auxanometer, her 100% bamboo yarn. This yarn is strong and smooth, creates beautiful, flowing fabric and is a joy to work with. For a real treat, Alissa will share examples from her collection of published patterns that feature this extraordinary yarn. We’ll also get an up-close look at the slip stitch pattern used for maximal color effect and reversibility of the Slipping Away Scarf! This is the story of an ongoing collaboration that produces unique fabrics, knitwear & color!
