Pam Powers With Amy Opie Visit the Guild In Person!

Pam and Amy will present “Color and Embellishment”

Pam Powers
Amy Opie

“You’re picking your next project and wondering how to make it special. What makes a hand knit different from something you buy in a store? It’s all in the details. Pam will discuss how to dress up your hand knits (or even store bought) with embellishments like embroidery and trim. Amy will speak on color work palettes and motifs. Pam and Amy are both knitwear designers. Pam owns Ikigai Fiber yarn and Amy is her go-to color expert.

After the presentation, visit the Ikigai Fiber trunk show. You will get to see first-hand color and embellishment in action. In addition to many color work samples, the show will also include a beautiful selection of embroidery with wool on knits.

Some of Pam’s and Amy’s designs – the first nine are Pam’s:
