The Beauty of Fibers for All Seasons
Summer brings not only more light but also more choices in knitting fibers.
Barbara Chappell, fiber artist and owner of Fiberwood Studio
will be here to show a variety of fibers that differ in their content, in how they
are made and in their colors. Silk, linen, rayon, cotton, and blends --
how do they behave, how do they work up? She will
share the creative possibilities and lighter wear these
fibers offer and give us the information we need for use and care.
We are going way beyond the basic wool yarn we've all known since our youth
When you visit Barbara's shop on 92nd Street you will also see
the creative artistry she and her staff bring to knitting. Barbara is a professor
at Mount Mary University in the fashion department and also offers
many classes in her Studio. She will bring many yarns and finished objects
for you to see. Come early to browse and touch. Fibers are also for sale
so come and enjoy.
