Class of 2018 Capstone Graduation

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018
Share Button

My favorite night of the year! We celebrated our newest graduates from the WEBS Expert Knitter Certification Program on a beautiful late-spring evening along with family, friends, former grads, and the members of the WEKP. With a toast to the group and their mentors, the evening kicked off with a welcome by Kathy.

Donna Dyer crafted a beautiful cabled cardigan with a seed stitch collar (perfectly designed!) in Valley Yarns Northampton. With former Design Manager Kirsten Hipsky as her mentor, I was fairly sure there would be no problem at all, and I was right. Donna looked amazing in her just-right sweater.

Jodey Benson is the most precise, technical knitter I’ve met, so I knew her design proposal for a long open cardigan with a lace border would be perfect. What I didn’t expect was that it would be gasp-inducingly beautiful. She not only grafted her lace border at the neck, she also created a unique belled sleeve in the same lace pattern and grafted THAT onto her set-in sleeves (after blocking them on styrofoam trees she bought at the Christmas Tree Store, of course).

Whitney Linnenbringer was brave enough to do a gradient colorway on her pullover tunic, and found that the biggest challenge was managing the color changes. I have to agree that you sure don’t want a line cutting your chest in half of two different colors, so it took plenty of math and charting to make those changes work not only on the front and back but down the sleeves as well. I think you’ll see that the effort produced a stunning garment, ably abetted by mentor Cyndi Shepard.

Jan Dumond Neiman chose to do a long jacket-like cardigan, with crocheted embellishment in a contrasting color at the stitch patterned collar. She also included the most important function in any garment–pockets! She inserted on-seam pockets and knit a lining in that same contrasting color as the collar trim; the crab-stitch outline makes them easy to snuggle hands into on a cold walk outside.

Deb Ullman was least confident about her seaming and finishing skills going into the Capstone process, so she did what I am all in favor of: she spent the months before she started her knitting by researching, swatching, and practicing every kind of seaming technique she knew she’d use on her Capstone sweater. Her beautiful pullover with an eyelet stitch pattern at the hem and sleeve cuffs shows off a deceptively complex construction and her finishing saved the day. Mentor Erin Holman gave her plenty of support, as she is a master of finishing herself.

Shannon Carey is an accountant, which should tell you that she is precise, slightly obsessive, and focused. Nowhere did that show more than in the fine details of her beautiful yoked pullover. She charted the sleeve caps, she charted the neckline, she charted the repeats to be sure she could seam in the lace pattern of the body of the sweater. She swatched every single detail of her sweater, and in the process made 2 fronts and 3 sleeves. That’s dedication! Her sweater is the most technically perfect and one of the most beautiful in all of the graduations I’ve been a part of. And she looks amazingly happy!

And the most creative and detail-rich sweater of the evening, without a doubt, was conceived and knitted by Ryan Subucz. Her proposal, submitted in December of 2017, showed a sweater with two intarsia panels representing the stained glass windows from the magical animated “Beauty and the Beast.” I was pretty worried about her ability to pull that off, even given her amazing talent with colorwork. Mentor Elizabeth Decker talked her down and the resulting sweater featured the entire back of her sweater covered in the most painstaking detailed colorwork, delineated by single crochet and duplicate stitch to look exactly like a stained glass window. It was offset by a perfectly plain solid-color front and sleeve construction. This sweater drew gasps of admiration and we are so proud of Ryan for persevering through that LOONG process.

What a gorgeous night–in so many ways. I hope you’ll come to the store and see these beautiful works of fiber art on display in the store for the next week or so. Remember that they’re all original designs, so no patterns will be available. Be inspired!

WEBS Expert Knitter Certification Capstone Graduation 2017

Monday, July 10th, 2017
Share Button

My favorite evening of the year is the Capstone Graduation ceremony, held at the Delaney House a few miles down the road from WEBS. It’s a chance to congratulate and praise the students who have made their way through the 19 required classes and electives, and then used the knowledge they’ve acquired to design and knit a sweater that fits them to a T. This year’s graduation was held on June 21, a beautiful summer evening, and our group gathered to socialize, see old and new friends and fellow students and teachers, and celebrate our newest group of 9 graduates.

We began with a tribute to a dear friend and colleague, Liz Wrobleski. Liz passed away very unexpectedly in late December–we’d already met and I had approved her proposal for her Capstone sweater, but she never got to start it. Her family gave one of her exquisite sweaters to us, and we awarded her certificate to her husband and son in her honor. It was a beautiful and sad moment, but her family was supportive and we are so grateful that we were able to recognize her talent. Here is her Sweater Construction sweater–and it’s flawless.

Liz Wrobleski sweater

Susan Drew is a seamstress as well as a phenomenal knitter, and her sweater design was an interpretation of a classic Chanel jacket, with i-cord trim standing in for Coco’s famous braided edging. She used a 3-color slip stitch pattern, and painstakingly reviewed each step of her process with her mentor, Stephanie Gibbs, for technical accuracy. I think you’ll agree that the effort she expended shows to great advantage in her iconic design.

Susan Drew sweater

Kim Lier chose to do a cabled aran sweater, but proportionally correct for her small size and shape. She researched cables, twists, crossings, ribbing, twisted stitches, and finally steeled herself to do a saddle shoulder (without EVER having done one before!) so that her cables would truly shine, uninterrupted by a shoulder seam. At one of our “support group” meetings, she worried that perhaps her sweater was going to be smaller than she wanted–and she ended up ripping out a month’s worth of stitches to re-do her design to more closely mirror her ideal fit. Her cabled cardigan is really a work of art, and her mentor, Leslie Ann, agrees.

 Kim Lier sweater

When I first met Salin Low, she was caring for a very ill spouse. Although I knew she had a long drive to WEBS and had a lot on her plate with work,in-home care for her husband, and a lot of complicated knitting, she was always warm and took time to talk with me and her fellow students. Sadly, her husband passed away a few months ago. Salin created a Capstone love letter to her husband by adapting the design on her wedding ring, whichwas a glass seal used for sealing letters with wax. The design was a sun and a flower with the words “I turn for you” in French. With mentor Erin’s help, Salin’s sweater incorporated an intarsia sunflower and sun, and embroidered sun rays on the shoulder. The sunflower was supported by an i-cord stem and the border of her hem was stranded in different colors to resemble grass. The entire effect is clean and simple, with texture on the flower adding a visual pop to the background of the stockinette stitch.

Salin Low sweater

Angie Tierney had an ambitious plan for her sweater–using two different yarn weights, she wanted to make a sweater that looked like a sleeveless vest over a lighter long-sleeved shirt. I had no idea how she was going to make that work, but of course she did, beautifully. Using Valley Yarns Colrain for the body of the sweater, she designed numerous cable patterns to accentuate the shaping and fit of her “vest,” and then chose Valley Yarns Huntington to knit the sleeves, collar, and hem. By choosing tonal variations rather than stark contrasting colors, she softened the visual effect of the two different parts of the design and truly made a unique sweater that will certainly be an attention-getter once the weather moves into winter temps.

Angie Tierney sweater

Michal Lumsden and I share a former workplace–she’s there now, and I was there for several years before her. I knew her colleagues would be supportive of her knitting in meetings, for which I was pretty envious! Michal’s sweater is a simple, elegant, form-flattering light cardigan with an intriguing eyelet at the hem, giving it an airy feel and a sophisticated look. I told her that if I didn’t know she had knit it, I would have picked it out of a lineup for her to wear. It just says “Michal” to me! The genius of having 3 top buttons leaves the options for accessorizing open–in the summer, it can layer over a tank, and in the winter, a turtleneck wouldn’t look out of place underneath it. Cyndi Shepard, her mentor, is incredibly proud.

Michal Lumsden sweater

Elaine Bloniasz knew she wanted to use Fair Isle colorwork in her sweater. True Fair Isle is knit in the round with no seaming, but the Capstone requirements demand that there be shoulder, sleeve, and side seams on the sweater for their final project. Elaine and her mentor, Erin, came up with a truly genius solution for that, by making a yoke that she seamed into her shoulders. Desperate times call for desperate measures…Her sweater fits her so perfectly that it reminds us all that truly well-fitting garments are within our reach.

Jan Wilson has spent a lot of time in Africa, courtesy of her daughter and son-in-law who moved there to teach. She was entranced by a woven basket she saw during her time there, and had the idea to recreate the look and feel of that basket in her sweater. It is amazing! Knitting a worsted weight yarn at a tighter gauge gave her the tightly coiled texture of woven plant fiber, and her tri-color braids perfectly reflect the braided seam holding the coiled strands together. Working tirelessly with her mentor, Ping Wood, Jan really made this sweater the stand-out for most closely resembling the inspiration for the garment.

Jan Wilson sweater

Ruth Manna worked with mentor Beth Decker on a drapey open cardigan with intarsia striping that is deceptively simple in appearance. In order to make those stripes she had to do intarsia (color blocking) sections with invisible joins. I know she ripped them out over and over in her quest for perfection, and her garment is the richer for her hard work. Not only that, but the stripes in her hemline align exactly with the striping on her sleeve cuffs–and that is perfectionism I can get behind! Ruth’s sweater is absolutely lovely, fits her perfectly, and would be appropriate year-round.

I’m so proud of this year’s graduates. Their sweaters are on display in our store for a few more days, so come in and see them in person!

Our busiest weekend of the year has passed! Keep scrolling for an insider’s look at our 15th Annual Tent Sale and Fleece Market!

headerSaturday morning starts off with a quick meeting (and pep talk!) for store staff. Tent Sale is all-hands on deck, so even those who do not work in the retail store are on hand to help out! We want to make sure everyone is on the same page – it helps the lines move faster,  and helps us provide the best service we can to our customers.

storemeetingWe have tons of high-quality yarns on sale! At Tent Sale, you can often find your favorite brands for $2.50 and $5.00 a skein – not to mention full bags of yarn at unbeatable sale prices!

Untitled design (1)One of our favorite parts of Tent Sale is the annual Fleece Market on Saturday. Local farmers and artisans gather in our parking lot to sell fleeces, tools for fiber artists, luxury yarns, handmade goods, and sometimes, animals!

5 Tips for Tent Sale!

Tuesday, May 16th, 2017
Share Button

The wait is over – clean out the trunk of your car! This weekend, Saturday, May 20th and Sunday May, 21st WEBS will be hosting our 15th Annual Tent Sale at our Northampton, Mass store!

Whether this is your first trip, or you’re a Tent Sale pro, here are a few insider tips for shopping our biggest in-store sale of the year!

 

1. Come prepared!

If you aren’t sure what you’re looking for, it’s not a bad idea to take a peek at our website and check out our offerings. Our May Sale is in full swing, and you can score some excellent deals under the tent, as well as in the store, and the warehouse. Coming with a few patterns, and having a list is an excellent idea, and will help give you some inspiration. Knowing what PDF patterns you’ll need printed out at checkout will help you as well. Of course, there will be yarns or sales that are just too good to pass up – so, be open to trying something new! WEBS offers a volume discount of 20% off of full priced yarns if you spend $60, and 25% off of full priced yarns if you spend $120. For more information about our discount system, click here!

Historically, the Saturday of Tent Sale is our busiest day of the entire year! Every person who works for WEBS will be on hand to help, but not everyone will have the same knowledge as our retail store staff, especially in the hustle and bustle of a busy day. If you have specific questions about patterns, we suggest stopping by the store on another day, or taking advantage of our free drop in classes, if you can! We want to provide you with the best service we possibly can!

tentsale172

2. We can (almost) always order more!

tentsale171

Because our store is in one location, and our shipping warehouse is in the next town over, what it says we have in stock online, doesn’t always reflect what we actually have on hand, which can be frustrating for customers who are traveling a long way to come to Tent Sale. There’s no need to fear though – we can order you the quantity you need at checkout, and if it’s in stock, we’ll ship it home to you for free! If the item is out of stock, we’ll backorder it for you, and charge your shipping fees when it hits the mail. If you’re shopping online this week, you can also select “in store pick-up” at checkout, and your items will be waiting at the store for you . . . but you’ll have to act fast – we need about 48 hours to fulfill these orders!

 

3. Don’t forget about our Fleece Market on Saturday!

tentsale173

tentsale175

Everyone’s always excited for the Fleece Market, which takes place from 10 until 5 on Saturday. We’ll have 15 (!!!) local farms who will be set up around the perimeter of our parking lot, selling all kinds of goods, from fleeces and handmade yarn, to lamb meat and jewelry. Bring some extra cash – you never know what you’ll find! Check out a full list of vendors over here, with links to their websites.

4. There will be lines!

tentsale176

There’s no avoiding it, there will be some waiting. Thankfully, we will have parking attendants on hand who will help you find a place to park easily. To alleviate wait times, we’ll have extra cash registers set up to accommodate everyone as quickly and smoothly as possible. We can’t avoid long lines though, so try to bear with us. So, wear comfortable shoes and bring a friend to chat with (or your knitting!) – you’ll get through that line in no time!

 

5.  Bring a snack, or stop by the bistro bus!

tentsale177

It’s a given – most people plan to spend a good chunk of time at Tent Sale. We encourage you to bring plenty of water and a snack. The Bistro Bus will also be parked in our lot for most of the day (10 – 3), so there’s no need to leave for lunch. Check out their menu! They have delicious offerings, like Asian Fusion Tacos, and Quesadillas, as well as weekly specials!

tentsale178

 

Are you as excited as we are?

WEBS will be open on Saturday from 10 – 5:30, and from 10 -4 on Sunday. Don’t forget to tune into WHMP for Ready, Set, Knit!, which will be airing LIVE at 9. We’ll also be posting a virtual tour of the Fleece Market for those who can’t make it, but still want to get in on the action.

 

We can’t wait to see you!
