Susan B Anderson visits the Guild in November!
Join Susan B. Anderson for a fun-filled talk entitled Stash Changing Moments, about all things knitting! Susan will share an excerpt reading from her chapter in the newly released Clara Parkes’ book called A Stash of One’s Own. Susan will discuss a bit about her background and how she got her start as a knitwear designer and author including the backstory on some of her most popular designs. She will cover some of the most commonly asked questions of her and offer some tips for getting started as a knitting designer. Susan will talk about her new American wool company and pattern line, Barrett Wool Co., what she’s learned, how it all came to be and what’s happening one year in. Lastly, she will love to take questions from the audience.
