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: Susan Stambaugh
Program Topic: Exclusive TKG Colorway
We have commissioned Susan Stambaugh, founder of local yarn company Abstract Fiber to create an exclusive colorway for the Tigard Knitting Guild. Come to the May 16th Guild Meeting to see for yourself how lovely it is and order this one-of-a kind colorway to make your choice of shawls, scarves, socks or sweaters.
While working in the corporate world, Susan found she needed a creative outlet and started quilting. She developed her unique color palate while quilting and started dyeing her own quilting thread. Then she moved on to dyeing fiber and eventually yarn which resulted in her own company, Abstract Fiber. She loves to knit and spin. Susan has been in business about 5 years and you may have seen her booth with all the lovely yarn at any of the fiber festivals around the Pacific Northwest or at many local yarn shops. Abstract Fiber prides themselves on having no knots in their skeins.
Susan will be showing samples of the TKG colorway as well as talking to us about her passion for color and her wonderful yarn company, Abstract Fiber
