Opening Day Spotlight and Luncheon
Fiber is serious fun! Especially when . . .
Our PANEL of 4 talented designers — Jenny King, Judith Shangold, Karin Skacel, and Myra Wood — were asked, Feature your fiber expertise to design panel-based garments using a template from Knitting in New Directions. A life-sized template is perfect for combining knit and crochet — even for mixing in handwoven or felted fabric.
Then we added a twist to the challenge: Each PANEList was handed a wild card, Take a panel created by one of the others and add pieces that make this design work. The element of surprise forces the designers out of their comfort zones — and that should be a good place for creativity.
How will the PANEL meet that challenge?
Will they be more creative when they plan and control the whole project?
Or will they be more creative when they have to deal with the unknown?
