We are changing the format of the newsletters. In this and future issues, you will see it divided into 2 segments, possibly more, to bring you reviews, sweepstakes and to showcase everything we have to offer at the upcoming festival March 24, 25, 26, 2017!

Knit, Crochet, Fiber:

We are thrilled to have Marly Bird join us at theFestival! Marly is a Crochet and Knitwear Designer Extraordinaire! You can tell a lot about Marly just by the hats that she wears. She is an avid crocheter and knitter who loves to share her passion with her students. Balancing her day as a wife, mommy, designer, National Spokesperson for Red Heart Yarns, teacher and pod cast host is a challenge, but Marly wouldn’t change any of it. She’s joining us in Pittsburgh with a series of exciting classes and will be on hand when not teaching with Robyn Chachula at the Crochet Superbooth.

To celebrate crocheting, we are giving away this cool book “Boho Crochet” for one lucky winner, see below.


Michelle “Knit Purl” Hunter, best known for all of herwildly popular KAL’s (Knit -Alongs), has been collaborating on KAL’s with skacel since early 2011. You are probably most familiar with the Scoreboard KAL, Building Blocks and Building in Color that are offered in local yarn stores regularly. We are pleased to have the talented Michelle join us and offer 5 of her newest classes.

Classes in Knit, Crochet, Sewing, Quilting, Surface Design and MORE!!!

Quilting, Sewing and Fabric:


We continue to be inspired and in awe of all of the talented people in the quilting world! The fabrics alone are spectacular but what is being done with fabric and the surfaces of quilts often leaves us amazed. We are now accumulating a stash of books and fabrics, and have spent a good bit of time looking at quilts and quilting on Pinterest.

Our very own Kitty Spangler, A Fiber Arts Guild member, teacher and artist, will be teaching multiple classes, one of which is an English Paper Piecing style class.  Her large quilt seen below, was done to commemorate Pittsburgh’s 250 Year Anniversary.  She took the image on the left (map of Pittsburgh neighborhoods) and turned it into an art quilt pictured on the right, connecting all of the neighborhoods with thread.
