Knitwear designer Ruth Boelkins of SpoutKnits is coming to the Neighborhood Fiber Co. Studio Store at 700 N. Eutaw Street, Baltimore on Friday, January 18, 2019 from 4-6pm to host her very own Designer Trunk Show.
Ruth first came to NFC owner Karida Collins’ attention at Neighborhood Fiber Co.’s first Vogue Knitting Live event in Chicago, 2012. Although she was not yet designing professionally, Ruth was swathed in the most GORGEOUS handknits! Karida was overwhelmed by Ruth’s style, savvy and sense of color. Since then, Ruth has blossomed into a renowned knitwear designer, creating thoughtful and functional designs that maximize bold, innovative colors, such as those of Neighborhood Fiber Co. Combining clever construction with clear instructions, Ruth encourages infusing style and flair into the practical.
Coming to us from Michigan, Ruth will bring samples galore for you to fondle and explore. She will be offering technical and color choice advice on her SpoutKnits patterns, all of which are available via her website www.spoutknits.com or on her Ravelry page under designer spoutknits. There will be ample opportunity to ask questions, check out samples, and sit and knit with this very talented and highly skilled knitwear designer.
