What a great day!!! Today Steven shared the wonders of fiber creation with some of the 10,000 folks who came to the River Center in St. Paul for the American Craft Council Show, he will do the same thing tomorrow at 11 AM at the same place. Just go to the Demo Center.
The wide eyed expressions of the hundreds who view the demo attest to the magic that Steven can perform. Hopefully some of them will drop down to the Yarn Garage for more information and materials.
Renee was also there doing her magic spinning of the yarn and showing others. Renee is our in-house spin expert. She and Angela will be hosting a spin-off next Starbuck's Glitter Knitter Jam on May 12.
This is a not to be missed show. The ACC folks were also very impressed with Steven and his creations.

The Price was Right, the night was wild, we need more room!!! Over 30 Knitter's, Crocheter's, and needle arts fans spent a wild nite of fiber fantasy with Steven Berg at the Rosemount Starbucks tonight.
If you have not yet gotten to the Glitter Knitter Jam at the Rosemount Starbucks the second Monday of every month, do yourself a favor and reserve Monday, May 12th from 6 PM to 9 PM to be there next month.
As a matter of fact, you can always check on opportunities to visit the Yarn Garage and see Steven Berg, the Glitter Knitter, by checking the calendar here.
Steven presented wonders and dream fibers fresh off the road that come in daily. He also gave new instructions for the charity knitting projects for the Glitter Knitter Gang, the Yarn Garage Charity Knitting gang. We had fresh faces, new knitters, and the exciting gang of regular Glitter Knitter fans. Where else in the cities can you spend three hours with a fashion designer and fiber artist like Steven?

Steven and the Stitch Mechanics were out in force at the Minnesota Knitter's Guild Yarnover 2008 at Hopkins High School. There were Oooo's and Aaaaah's at the new and unique fiber that only Steven finds from around the world. Renee was there spinning away showing that you can make your own yarn at home. Renee is our in-house spin expert. She and Angela will be hosting a spin-off next Starbuck's Glitter Knitter Jam on May 12. She has years of spinning expertise and will be demonstrating for us again at the Shepard's Harvest event on Mother's Day weekend. The Yarn Garage has many natural and beautifully dyed Rovings for spinning from Louet and Local fleecers.We had yarns from Appalachia to Northern Wales, South America to South Africa.
As usual Steven brought a ton of creative power for his friends at Yarnover. He was surrounded by the unusual creative team that helps at the Glitter Knitter Home, the Yarn Garage. Attendees at Yarnover found you need not have those plain jane patterns with ho hum fibers from the standard old fashioned yarn shops. You can get designs and fiber at the Fiber Arts Celebration Shop, the Yarn Garage, from Minnesota's own fashion designer and fiber artist, Steven Berg.
As we were loading in the treasure trove Bob was moving the U-Haul truck out into the parking lot and heard someone comment, "Looks like Steven, the Glitter Knitter, is here. Bob asked how did they knew that.
They said, "Steven is the only one that brings a U-Haul of fiber treasures, tools and yarns."
