Last week we had the pleasure of hosting Stephen West and Steven Berg here at the shop! It was an absolute blast.
On Tuesday, Stephen West taught a workshop on shawl-making. Here he is decked out in a few of his fabulous creations! Thank goodness he is a math whiz – it’s amazing how many advanced calculations go in to his design work.
On Monday, Stephen and Steven brought dozens of samples and suitcases full of gorgeous yarns to the shop for their Trunk Show Extravaganza.
We had tons of fun playing dress up with all the beautiful samples! Jules grabbed the Dotted Rays shawl and Anja enjoyed StevenBe’s colorful Ponchini. The staff definitely picked out their next project(s)…
Of course, the participants didn’t hesitate to get involved either! It was so much fun to watch them try on different accessories. It was love at first sight with Lisa (right) and this bamboo blend Ponchini!
The guys were always on hand to help style the accessories and advise on yarn choice. On the left, StevenBe is demoing one of his multi-use pieces and on the right, Stephen West shows off his new shawl Welty.
Audrey certainly didn’t leave empty handed that evening! She stocked up on a few summer projects. We can’t wait to see how they turn out.
Look at all those yummy, yummy yarns! We still have a few skeins left that were dyed exclusively for the tour. Drop by the shop to check them out!
“Never match. Just complement!”
Until next time!
