Spring Retreat featuring Amy Herzog
The planning for the 2014 Arkansas Fiber Arts Extravaganza Spring Retreat is well underway and we are excited to share all of the plans with you. The Arkansas Fiber Arts Extravaganza is excited to announce that Amy Herzog will join us as our keynote speaker and featured teacher in May 2014.
Making clothes. Knitting is a wonderful pastime, keeping our fingers and minds busy and active while giving us the opportunity to fondle unspeakably soft fibers. But it's also a fundamentally productive activity - it allows us to create beautiful, useful things that hold our love and caring for others within their stitches. In this talk, we'll explore using our knitting gifts for ourselves - how to ensure that when you treat yourself to the product of your time and money, it's something you cherish and wear for years to come.
Amy Herzog is a author and knitwear designer. Her latest book is Knit to Flatter: The only instructions you will ever need to knit sweater that will make you look good and feel great!
