Fiber Arts at the Gardens
By Featured Instructor on Jun 14, 2013
Knitting and crocheting are not just about baby booties and cozying up to the fire in the dead of winter (although, don't get me wrong, those things are very pleasant), it's also about creating something beautiful and unpredictable with textiles that might match the current season. Yarns are now made of all kinds of wonderful materials such as bamboo, silk, soy, corn and even milk! And we're creating things other than afghans and Nordic sweaters such as floral beaded brooches, bracelets and artful bowls and wall hangings! But it is also about social gatherings and sharing your skill and creativity with other fiber arts enthusiasts. I can think of nothing more enjoyable than being surrounded by gorgeous foliage in the gardens and making something fabulous with friends on a summer evening. I so hope you'll join us!
If you're intrigued and ready to start your entry into the world of fiber arts, join us at the Gardens for one of Ann's fiber art classes!
Featured Instructor: Ann Myhre
My name is Ann Myhre and I own and operate Knitty Cat - a yarn shop in Centennial, Colorado. The shop has been home to fiber artists of all ages and skill levels for the last 10 years. I teach the most current trends in knitting, crocheting, felting, sewing and jewelry making. With a watchful eye on the runway shows for hot new looks and color themes, I have created a niche for knitters who love to stay fashion forward. We've heard the welcomed comment, "this is not your Grandma's knit shop!" quite often over the years! I am always on the ready to share my knowledge and expertise with people who are enthusiastic about learning something new. Hope to meet you soon!
