Once an executive in the corporate world, Shirley Paden left it all behind 15 years ago to pursue a career in knitwear design. Today Shirley is the owner and founder of Shirley Paden Custom Knits in New York City. She teaches master knitting classes for the fashion industry and conducts seminars on lace, entrelac, cables, color knitting, and finishing techniques. Her designs have been published in Interweave Knits, Vogue Knitting, and Knitter’s magazines and she was the subject of a profile in 2004. She has been a guest on public television’s Knitting Daily TV (2010). Knitwear Design Workshop is her first, much-awaited book. She lives in New York City.
My friend Melodye and Annece have joined forces as 2 Kraz Knitters and will be presenting Shirley Paden the author of Knitwear Design Workshop: A Comprehensive Guide to Handknits (Interweave, 2010) on June 4 – 5, 2010 in Baltimore, Md.
Here is an excert from Melodye's blog:
The weekend includes a book signing and talk, Friday night starting at 6. On Saturday there will be an all day workshop with Shirley working through the principles in her book. There will be a short break for lunch and you’re asked to bring your lunch. We’ll provide beverages and desserts.
Friday evening is free, but you must have your own copy of the book and R.S.V.P. not later than May 28, 2010. I haven’t seen the book locally, but I know Amazon has it.
You may attend the book signing without attending the workshop. Once paid, there will be no refunds but substitutions will be allowed.
