April 3rd Meeting at Sycamore Hospital at 7pm

Sue Quellhorst will be our guest at this meeting. Sue is an avid knitter who learned while in college. Oh, she had been taught much younger than that, but she really learned to knit while attending Heidelberg College in Tiffin, OH. She knit for her family for years and then the occasional friend or neighbor would ask for a sweater or vest. She found herself making more for others and less and less for her family. Twenty-Seven years ago she began with The Studios on High Gallery in Columbus and has been there ever since.
[from www.studiosonhigh.com: Located in Columbus’ energetic Short North Arts District since 1986, Studios on High Gallery is Columbus’ oldest artist-owned and operated gallery. Selected by jury, each exhibiting artist takes turns staffing the gallery, while simultaneously creating art on-site. This provides a rare opportunity for art patrons to meet the artists personally and engage with their creative processes. The gallery offers oil, acrylic, pastels, and watercolor paintings, jewelry, glass, wear-ables, collages, mosaics, sculptures, and fine crafts.]
Many of you will know that you have found a best friend and men-tor in Sue – she does not believe in swatching!!! Instead, because she makes so many sweaters, she makes an arm first! Ok, I didn’t say that she doesn’t measure and count her stitches – she just makes a very large swatch right off! She makes a whole sleeve!!
SABLE is how Sue has lived her life – how most of us live our lives! You know what that is, right? Stash Acquisition Beyond Life Expectancy!! But now that she and her husband will be mov-ing to a retirement community, she is sorting and sifting through
her stash carefully. She would encourage each of us to do the same and bring a few special pieces from your stash with you to this meeting. She starts with that special yarn and then designs with/for it and the person.
Come and meet her, hear what she has learned about design-ing for others and the rules of doing that if you begin with another person’s pattern (yes, there are rules if you want to call it your design). Bring one or two of your most special stash yarns and a pair of needles for that yarn. It should be a fun evening.
