Kendall Frazier

Kendall will be teaching Knitting for Beginners in Classroom D from 9am to 12pm and Drop Spinning for Beginners in Classroom B from 1pm to 3pm:

IMG_000720 years ago Kendall’s mom bought her an “I Taught Myself To Knit” kit on clearance at a discount store. Since then she has only stopped knitting long enough to drive.  She does not consider waiting at stoplights to actually be driving. When you pull up next to a crazy lady furiously knitting a sock until the light turns green it’s probably her.

Sarah Dauro

Sarah will be teaching Saori Weaving in Classroom D from 1pm to 4pm:

sarahSarah has been involved with arts and crafts for most of her life and has done everything from needlework to stained glass but she focuses predominantly on fiber arts including spinning, knitting, and, of course, weaving.

Finding Saori was a game changer for Sarah. Before Saori, life was about spinning the perfect lace weight yarn and knitting the most beautiful lacy gray shawl. Since Saori, Sarah’s eyes have been opened to the wonders of art yarn, the beautiful colors of the rainbow and beyond, and the imperfect perfection of weaving your heart.

Saori Weaving

Classroom D from 1pm to 4pm and taught by Sarah Dauro:

class_sampleIn this class, students will weave “Saori style” on pre-warped Saori floor looms. Saori is a “no rules” weaving style developed nearly 50 years ago by Misao Jo in Japan. Saori weaving focuses on natural creativity rather than technical skills and commercial patterns. Students in this class will relax and have fun while creating an individual piece of art. Looms and all supplies are provided. This class is suitable for both beginners and experienced weavers who want to explore a new weaving methodology.
