Hilary Smith Callis is a local designer who considers The Yarniad as her knitting “epic”. You may know her by her Citron shawl, which was published in Knitty in 2009.
After releasing Citron (her first pattern if you can believe it!), she went on to start the Yarniad. She now has an impressive collection of garments and accessories under her belt and has featured in Knitscene, Twist Collective and Brave New Knits. Her knitwear is flattering, feminine and beautifully designed. She is a staff and customer favorite!
We have the pleasure of hosting several of Hilary’s designs right here at the shop. Stop by to try them on, preview the patterns and start your own! Follow us on Facebook as we spotlight her designs throughout the next two weeks. The trunk show will run until June 16th.
Registration is now open! Stephen West of Westknits and Steven Berg of StevenBe will be headed our way during the 1st annual Fiberlicious Stephen & Steven Tour. This magical team of knitting and design inspiration will bring their amazing energy, talent and creativity to ImagiKnit this summer.
On Monday June 30th, Stephen and Steven will be showing off their favorite shawls and accessories in a trunk show extravaganza. The guys will consult with participants and help them pick out the perfect yarn combinations to make their own masterpieces. Receive hands on tips and tricks from the designers themselves. You will also be the first to have access to some exclusive and commemorative yarns celebrating the tour.
The trunk show will run from 4-7 P.M. In order to ensure quality time with our hosts, we ask that you call to reserve a one-hour spot (4-5, 5-6 or 6-7). The fee for this event will be $15. Spaces are limited, so give us a call today!
Staff recommended designer Dan Doh will be featured at the shop from now until May 30th.
We love Dan Doh’s creative take on drape and shaping. Her inspiration stems from her pleasure in exploring different textures of yarn as well as stitch patterns. According to her, the yarn tells her how it wants to be worked. She likes to keep the shape of garments simple enough to enjoy and show the interesting fabric that you make by hand.
Yumiko Alexander born in Japan and always loved to design, knit and crochet. She started sharing her designs with knitters and crocheters after I moved to the US. Seeing how people imbue her designs with their own ideas of color, fiber and style inspire her to keep designing.
We can’t wait for you to see her designs in person here at ImagiKnit!
