About Xandy Peters **
Xandy Peters is a knitting designer and teacher, best known as the innovator of the stacked stitch technique and for the Fox Paws shawl pattern. Starting out as a footwear and product designer, Xandy turned to knitting as a way to explore textiles and surfaces without using factory production and has since made a career out of publishing new patterns and teaching workshops. Xandy has been published in magazines such as Vogue Knitting, Knitscene, Twist Collective, Knitscene, Knitty, and Pom Pom Quarterly. She has a Bluprint class teaching the stacked stitch technique and continues to self publish patterns monthly on Ravelry.
The Philosophy of Xandy Peters: “I want to encourage knitters of all levels to use their craft as a form of self expression, to try new techniques, and to share their projects and experiences. There’s so much more to this craft than fancy yarn and trendy patterns. I place more value on personal growth, applaud artistic expression and celebrate those who make the most of their materials.” Visit her website to read more about her knitting at Xandypeters.com
Xandy will be teaching four workshops – only $30 per workshop for members!
