January 14, 2020 Programme – coriand3r knits
Our speaker on Tuesday, January 14th is our very own guild member, Chantelle Harpe. She is the dyer and brightly-coloured brain behind coriand3r knits. Chantelle launched her micro indie-dyer business at the 2014 K-W Knitters' Fair and has been going slow and steady ever since, participating in local fairs and festivals, trunk shows, and speaking events. She will discuss how acid dyes work, and the dye techniques, tools and supplies she uses to create yarns. She will also touch on collaboration with designers, sample knitters, and others. Her presentation will include lots of photos for visual learners.
Please bring any questions about the production or business side of dyeing yarn. Chantelle promotes a philosophy of openness and collaboration among fibre artists to build strength in the fibre arts community. She will also touch on information useful to the knitter on how to get the best performance out of your indie-dyed yarn. There will be a selection of her yarn for sale, with cash, debit and credit accepted.
Our door prize this month will be a 100g braid of rainbow mini skeins from coriand3r knits, but the winner may trade for an alternate prize of their choosing.
