STITCHES United 2017 Teachers


Denise Bell
When she was growing up, Denise always performed some kind of handwork. When she learned to knit she was instantly addicted. Wherever she looks, Denise sees patterns, so it's no surprise that her knitting emphasis is lace. What is surprising to many knitters is that Denise is also a quilter who loves needle-turn applique.

Travel and spending time in the natural world provide inspiration. She recently visited Shetland and Scotland to delve further into the history of fine lace knitting. Her business, Lost City Knits, named for the community nearest her Oklahoma farm, offers fine hand-dyed yarns and original designs. When not knitting, teaching, dyeing, or designing, Denise puts her pattern-seeking abilities to work solving cryptic crossword puzzles, and because no one can do just one thing, she also kayaks on lakes and streams near her eastern Oklahoma home. Along with her husband, she is the author of the book Ultima Thule: Patterns Inspired by the Shetland Islands.

Through the years, Melinda worked in parks and environmental education centers as a Naturalist, so nature-inspired abstract images are abundant among her designs.

Mickey Depre
Mickey Depre was introduced to fiber arts by her own personal “grand masters” at the age of four. Grandmothers, great aunts, aunts, and her mother filled her days with cloth, needles, yarn. Then in 1997, she discovered quilting.

As she made a name for herself as an art quilter—with a flair for the whimsical—she made traditional quilts for her family, Paul Sr., Paul Jr., and Emily.

English Paper Piecing has become a slight obsession for Mickey and has lead to the publication of Pieced Hexies. Via English Paper Piecing and Beyond, she has put her own spin on this quilting tradition. 

And now she has traveled “a full circle in her quilting life” with her latest book, Half-Scrap Quilts. It features patterns for traditionally pieced bed quilts that show off her favorite half-scrap palette.

Judy Pascale, a native of Connecticut and a life-long knitter, launched her career as a professional knitting instructor and designer in the early 1990s.

For several years she was employed at a yarn shop where she taught knitting classes and assisted numerous customers with their knitting and finishing problems.

The second phase of Judy's design career combined knitting with beads. Using a non-prestringing technique and textured stitches, she has designed classes from small projects to garments. The most recent phase is wet felting. This ancient textile process remains vibrant and fascinating today. Either a Nuno scarf to wear or a decorative table runner or a bowl to decorate your home—creativity is endless.

Alasdair Post-Quinn
Alasdair is a computer technician in the Boston area who spends much of his spare time as a knitting designer. He focuses on double-knitting, which is a knitting technique that creates a fabric with no wrong side. Until recently, a typical double-knit fabric was either tubular or reversible with the opposite side showing a mirror image design in opposite colors. Over the past few years, people here and there have been expanding the definition of double-knitting to include more complex color and structure variations.

While Alasdair cannot claim to be the only one pushing these boundaries, he is among those on the forefront of innovation in double-knitting. His books, Extreme Double-Knitting and Double or Nothing, document his repertoire of esoteric double-knitting techniques, but he is continuing to develop techniques and apply them to new designs.

Alasdair has been teaching double-knitting around North America since 2005 and adds new techniques to his workshops regularly so that even experienced double-knitters or veterans of his previous workshops will have something new to learn. He also teaches on Craftsy, but for many there’s no substitute for face-to-face learning.
