Zoom Inside the Designer’s Head – Marissa Kessler
July 25, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDT$20
“Back in 2016 my then 7 year old daughter asked me to teach her how to knit. I did not know anything about yarn or knitting, but I figured since crochet only used one “thingy” and not two, it would be easier to learn. To this day, my daughter still can’t crochet (what is it they say about mothers teaching things to their daughters) but from that time on I was hooked.
As I started making more and more complex projects and challenging myself I noticed a tred. Knitted items were fancier or more intricate. Knitted patterns had lots of color work, finer detail and just looked more finished. Yes, there are some great crochet pattern makers out there, but by in large there was something missing for me.
I began to make my own sweaters, blankets and shawls. People began to ask for the patterns, complemented me on the colors and ask where they could buy that. I spent about a year learning everything I could about garment design and pattern making before publishing my first pattern on Ravelry. And the rest is history.”
Meeting is at 3pm eastern/2pm central/1pm mountain/12pm pacific on ZOOM.
Expect a door prize or two to be given out at the meeting.
