Knit for Fit with Anne-Marie Walkowicz
Making a sweater is a time consuming and expensive process. We often choose a size, and hope it fits once the project is completed. When you have your measurements, how do you use them to make adjustments to your pattern so that your creation fits the way you want it to? Our DKG member Anne-Marie will present some techniques for choosing a size, and adjusting a sweater pattern so that it fits you.
Join us on MLK day to learn more about adjusting your sweater pattern for a fabulous fit!
Anne-Marie will also be presenting a workshop on customizing your sweater pattern to fit from 1-4 the same day. Contact Anne-Marie or Monica MacFarland if you’d like to participate – be aware that the class may already be full.

September 16: June Cashmere
with Amy Swanson, USA Operations Manager
Amy will take us to Kyrgyzstan in her talk about Kyrgyzstan’s textile history, the recent discovery of highest quality cashmere goats, a peek at shepherd life in Kyrgyzstan, and the strides that June Cashmere founder Sy Belohlavek and his team are making toward the ethical and sustaina- ble production of cashmere in Kyrgyzstan. With the goal of economic development for Kyrgyzstan, Sy is establishing a cashmere processing mill in the capital city of Bishkek. This will allow work with additional shepherds throughout Kyrgyzstan, provide jobs in the city, and hopefully encourage additional investment in the country. Additionally, Amy will share insights about cashmere in general and June Cashmere’s yarn production and quali- ties specifically. . . and if the time change with Kyrgyzstan-Dayton allows, we will call in live to Sy in Kyrgyzstan to allow interactive engagement and questions with Sy directly.
Vendor: June Cashmere
