Post-Meeting Update: DOWNLOAD KAREN’S CROWDSOURCING Resources HERE
We knit for many reasons–but adding frustration to our lives should not be one of them. The world around us is full of ideas and tools that can help us become better and more effective knitters. Guild Vice President Karen des Jardins gathers the best of those tips and tools and shares them in her presentation titled “Crowdsourcing Your Craft: How to Become a Better Knitter.”
What is crowdsourcing? Crowdsourcing is the process of obtaining services, ideas or content by soliciting contributions from a large group of people, especially an online community. Karen will apply that process to knitting and bring us some new approaches to some old problems. She’ll show us notions, shortcuts, tips and tricks that will make your knitting easier and more fun.
Karen des Jardins is a knitting teacher and designer and the Vice President of our Guild. She has a degree in mechanical engineering and worked a number of years as a manufacturing engineer. This background paired with a love for all things yarn has given her a unique understanding of how to adapt knitting processes to best fit her students’ needs.
Do you have a special knitting secret that you’d like to share? Is there a knitting notion in your bag you can’t live without? Or a knitting tip that has saved you grief? If so, please contact Karen at VicePresident@SanDiegoKnitters.com. Let’s crowdsource our craft and share all the collective knitting knowledge we’ve gathered.
