Guild Meeting - October 10, 7pm, doors open at 6PM for social knitting
A self-confessed “technique freak” and “skill junkie,” JC dabbles in all kinds of knitting, but has a special fondness for textured knitting and novel construction techniques. If it involves lace, cables, or seamless construction, it’s sure to catch her eye. She shares her enthusiasm by teaching at shops and fiber festivals, and through her book Charts Made Simple. Her latest venture is Stitch-Maps.com, a website for viewing and creating grid-free charts of unparalleled fluidity, authenticity, and beauty.
JC will introduce us to stitch maps: the what, where, why, and how. What is a stitch map, and why are more and more knitters choosing to follow them? JC will explains what makes stitch maps so cool, where you can find them – and how you can create them yourself.
