Fiberside Chat with Ann Weaver
Fuzzy Goat is so fortunate to have good friends who look out for us! My friend Gail who owns Longmont Yarn Shoppe in Colorado has put together this FANTASTIC Fiberside Chat series and thought to include US, along with our other yarn shop friends. This is what happens we work to rise each other up. How fun is this!!!! Gail has worked it out so that the designers get their deserved share, Gail gets a bit for all her work and Fuzzy Goat benefits as well when you enroll with us!
These gatherings, hosted on Zoom, will be one-hour sessions with special guests joining us to give a peek into their world. These designers and creators will discuss their unique path, creative processes, latest projects—or whatever is inspiring them now. There will also be a Q&A session, giveaways, and other fun surprises for those who join!
Be sure to choose your preferred chat from the drop-down menu.
The chats will be closed to new enrollments 2 hours prior to start.
Join us for a Zoom chat with Ann Weaver: Sunday, June 28 at 4:00pm ET
Ann Weaver combines her love of knitting, her passion for creative reuse and thrifting, and her love of mending to provide us with techniques for saving or repurposing our beloved handmade and ready-wear knitwear. With the current trend to use what you already have and fix what’s broken, all the while rejecting the notion that newer is better, Ann will share examples of her altered and mended knits and demonstrate two methods of darning holes using simple tools. Darning can keep your beloved knitwear in service for years to come, and Ann hopes to inspire you to give new life to worn or thrifted textiles, perhaps in the form of a pincushion, a pillow, or some other use!
Ann Weaver sees knitting patterns in container ships, Tom Waits lyrics, Moby-Dick, classic cocktails, and the work of artists like Josef Albers and Mark Rothko. When she is not traveling to teach knitting workshops or explore thrift stores and estate sales, Ann lives in West Baltimore, where she works as a freelance editor and writer and runs Plied Yarns, a yarn company she started in 2019 with her best friend, Karida Collins. You can follow Ann on Instagram and find her designs on Ravelry, where her username is weaverknits.
