“Annetarsia Knits” Book Debut and Trunk Show

Posted by Katricia Leek in Author, Books, Events
Annetarsia Knits Book Debut and Trunk Show
Friday, August 1, 5-8pm


Snack, sip, and meet Anne Burke, author of the book Annetarsia Knits, as well as the photographers and many other who contributed. Annetarsia Knits will teach you a brand-new way to knit intarsia. This isn’t your grandmother’s intarsia. Instead, it’s easy, fast, and fun!

Annetarsia Knits is a reference book for the Intarsia technique, presented in a fresh, informative and comprehensive format. Knitters have traditionally shied away from intarsia due to the annoyance of dealing with multiple yarn supplies on the needle, and weaving all of the ends. “Annetarsia” gives knitters easy options to manage those issues, so that they can get to the fun stuff; painting pictures on their knitting without stranding. Intarsia creates a flexible, lightweight fabric, wonderful for garments.
