Mark your calendar for
Tuesday, April 9th
7 to 9 p.m.
Come meet Shannon Okey, aka Knitgrrl, author, publisher, editor, and owner of Cooperative Press. She'll have books on hand for you to peruse and we'll be happy to take your orders. And of course if you want a digital copy, we can help you with that immediately.
Cooperative Press is a company whose values are very much in line with ours. Big publishers don't always want to print a book. If they don't think it will sell a gazillion copies, they pass on the project. But that doesn't mean the book isn't any good! Shannon has set up Cooperative Press to help authors get published, get distribution to the right channels, and get a bigger share of the profits than they might otherwise receive. It's all about supporting the independent spirit of the crafting world.
It's because of Cooperative Press that we are able to discover fresh new designs, such as those in Hat Couture by Theressa Silver.
Now you've probably knit a hat or two before. Why another hat book? What could be different about it? Well, my friend, a lot can be different! These hats are anything but ordinary. And guess what? You'll get a chance to see some of them in person and talk to Theressa because she'll be joining us that evening as well!
But wait! There's more!
Fresh from her Oregon Coast photo shoot for her upcoming book, Alex Tinsley will be here with a trunk show of samples. Doomsday Knits is a collection of garments and accessories inspired by the post-apocalyptic genre of film, literature, and fashion.
Take a look at the video
from Alex's Kickstarter campaign to get a preview of the fashions in the book. Some very intriguing and unique things happening here! And this is your opportunity to get a look way before just about anyone else!
So join us the evening of
Tuesday, April 9th,
for an evening with
and Alex Tinsley
We'll be serving light refreshments
and parking is FREE after 7 p.m.
Our regular spinning group will be here, too,
so if you'd like to join them, bring your wheel or spindle.
Because at Pearl Fiber Arts,
spinning a yarn is a lot more
than just telling a tale!
