Shirley Paden- Fiberside Chat

"Teaching design means empowering people to move beyond following a pattern. It gives you the skills to make unique pieces wherever inspiration takes you. I want to share those skills beyond my classroom."
It’s been almost three decades since Shirley Paden turned craft into career. Today, this internationally acclaimed designer celebrates the 10th anniversary of her seminal book “Knitwear Design Workshop” (KDW). Shirley released a commemorative edition of KDW and has just launched her second book, “Knitwear Workshop Designs: Duets & Inspirations”. Expect a hands-on revelation that harmonizes the creativity of both teacher and student. 
Don't miss this Fiberside Chat as Shirley takes us along on her creative journey. "It still amazes me that we create all that we do with two sticks and some string. It's time to celebrate the ingenuity of our craft and its many innovative designers." Join Shirley and discover more about her 4-step design process, DALs (Design-A-Longs), and more!  

Shirley Paden is the owner of Shirley Paden Custom Knits located in New York City where she designs her exclusive line of hand-knit clothing.
