May-August Stitches Pasadena   Mother Knows Best:(22:49) Jasmin talks about the Altruism effect.   “Altruism activates reward centers in the brain. Neurobiologists have found that when a person behaves altruistically, the pleasure centers of their brain become more active. Engaging in compassionate actions activates the areas of the brain associated with the reward system” (Source)   Community Project:   Neighborhood Fiber Co.’s production and community mission has outgrown its current location, and owner, Karida Collins decided to purchase a larger building in the Midway neighborhood of Baltimore. This new location offers more square footage, ADA compliant access for customers, and increased space for additional classes and workshops. The new space is under construction to bring its gas and electric utilities up to code, and improve ventilation systems so that Team NFC can more safely work with dye pigments (as well as decrease the risk of Covid infection). Once these critical renovations are completed, cosmetic construction can begin on retail store space, class spaces, and outdoor area. The vision was always to have enough space so that Neighborhood Fiber Co. could not only expand their operations but also have the kind of facility that would work for projects and educational programs with Baltimore Youth Arts as well as other youth based organizations in the area. The problem is that since this project started (and Karida invested hundreds of thousands of dollars into the new building) the costs of renovations has more than doubled. Donations to this GoFundMe will go toward construction and labor costs to create a functional workspace and a welcoming creative hub in the Midway neighborhood. The sooner Neighborhood Fiber Co. can relocate, the sooner it can operate to its full potential and fulfill its community arts mission.

We purchased patterns, cut out the fabrics, and sewed it all up… so I have had some rudimentary experience with sewing, but would still consider myself a beginner. That said, as a knitter who has gained an understanding of fit and ease, etc., I’ve got an interest in sewing garments again, but am a little overwhelmed about where to start and how FAR to jump into sewing and drafting patterns. I’m working on padding out my dress form to be more of a real “double”-- but at what stage should I bother trying to make a sloper? A Moulage? Where would you recommend getting started. I checked at our local CC but it’s not offering classes of that nature; and even with Craftsy, I’ve been overwhelmed by the choices that don’t seem curated to guide me into levels of “making”. How does someone “level up” with sewing?” Vogue 1003, Vogue 1004  LINK Craftsy check Suzie Furrer, the bodice  Palmer Pletsch When Knitting Attacks:(36:00) Genevieve was yarn barfed on.

Heather fell in love with color at New Trier High School in Winnetka, IL where they had an amazing art department and after that she attended a private design school in Chicago where she left with honors. There could be a long drawn out story about how she got started dyeing yarn but it's really simple, she loves big bold color, loves yarn and loves knitting and crocheting. Heather is also an avid lover of cake.  Heather’s husband Christopher works for the shop full time so they are a true family run business. Heather and Chris met at work so they are used to working together, a question they get asked all the time. They have been at this for about 7 years and haven't killed each other yet, so they are calling it a win! Their daughter Grace is in High School and can be found helping with making the new stitch markers they recently added to their shop.
