Unless otherwise posted, Tigard Knitting Guild meetings are held the
Tigard Senior Center, 8815 Southwest Omara Street, Tigard, OR
We meet at 7pm, on the third (3rd) Thursday of each month.
Meetings are approximately two hours in length. The first hour is the monthly program which may be a featured speaker, discussion, or hands-on technique (see below). The second hour is for "sharing" our current and finished projects. Guests and members alike are welcome to bring any open questions, and in-progress or finished knitted items to share.
You are welcome to attend as a guest for two meetings prior to joining our Guild.
Speaker: Sivia Harding
Program Topic: Trunk Show
Sivia Harding will treat us to a trunk show featuring a sampling of her wonderful designs.
Sivia's website says this about her: "Sivia Harding learned how to knit in 2000 and has been churning out patterns since 2003. Her work has appeared in publication under her own name, plus being featured in Brooklyn Tweed's Wool People Series, Twist Collective online magazine, Knitty.com, various subscription clubs, and in many knitting books. Sivia is known for her work with exceptional beaded knits."
That certainly doesn't say enough about Sivia. If you check out her designs on Ravelry or on her website you will find at least 120 patterns most of which include beads and lace work. And though most of us think of shawls when we think of Sivia, she has many other designs for socks, cowls, gloves, cuffs, tunics and even jewelry. Check out her designs on Ravelry (ravelry name Sivia) or her website (www.siviaharding.com).
Sivia spends a lot of time traveling the country and giving classes and workshops at yarn stores and at conferences. Very recently she gave a live Webinar on bead knitting for Interweave Press/Knitting daily which, if you missed it, is available for download on demand. She has also been holding her own retreats and of course teaching in local Portland yarn shops. She is one very busy lady.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see Sivia's designs in person. And don't forget she is teaching her Moebius and the Mysterious Stitch Mirror class at TKG's spring workshop being held on May 3. Hope to see you there.
