Summer Speaker Series

Some of Fiber's Most Exciting Creators


We’ve invited some of your favorite designers and creators to join us for a series of new online gatherings.

These gatherings, hosted on Zoom, will be one-hour sessions with special guests joining us to give a peek into their world.

These designers and creators will discuss their unique path, creative processes, latest projects—or whatever is inspiring them now.

There will also be a Q&A session, giveaways, and other fun surprises for those who join!

Brisol Ivy
Stephen West
Laura Bellows JUL

Bristol Ivy
May 21 – 6pm CST

Bristol loves to teach and talk about the fundamental underlying structure of knitted garments, which makes her one of our most beloved designers. 

In addition, her background in social anthropology prompts her to pause and consider how the COVID 19 Pandemic is impacting fiber lovers, and finds a silver lining in the opportunity that virtual gatherings provide through a platform for even more people to have access to designers and their work from the comfort of their home.  This hour with Bristol will be so FUN!!

Stephen West
May 24 –1pm CST 

Come witness the colorful world of Westknits! Stephen will give an inspiring presentation on how he works with yarns, textures, and shapes. You will receive an inside look into Westknits' design process and how his colorful shawls have evolved over the past eleven years.
Laura Bellows
May 28 – 6pm CST


Laura’s journey to founding JUL Designs in her basement began in Bali, Indonesia! Laura will share the story of how her PhD field research led to collaboration and close relationships with Bali's skilled artisans and the commitment to people and place that is at the heart of JUL Designs. Join us to hear Laura's tips on the creative process and never leave another finished piece languish in your dresser drawer again!

We Appreciate Your Support

Here at The Studio we’ve been brainstorming strategies to weather the storm that the COVID-19 pandemic has struck upon us. The impact to the shop’s operations is extreme, & beyond our doors the ripple effect is extensive.

Temporarily gone are in-real-life trade shows, workshops and so many other ways we gather to support and celebrate our shared passion. From sheep farmers to our local indie dyers and creators of all things from patterns to accessories to yarn bowls, all are feeling the effect on their lives and livelihoods.    

In our search to keep The Studio afloat and keep you, our customers engaged, we’ve explored new ways of doing things and learned other ways to reach out and connect. We appreciate your support during this trying time, and we can’t wait to see you in person at the shop when this is all over!
