We love Joan!

 Book Signing with Joan

Last Saturday, 
spent the afternoon at Knitique!

We love Joan and her "pretty & romantic" designs.  
We were so thrilled to have Joan in the boutique 
for an entire day of special events with her!

 Designer, Joan McGowan-Michael

We're a big fan of  Joan's designs and her books.

Some of our favorite patterns of Joan's are her Bed Jacket 
and Krista Tee from her first book 

We also adore her Angelina Shrug in the recent published book

This book is a compilation of designs and stories by 
top knit-wear designers.  
We love Joan's story in the book about her Mother, Angelina 
and her mother's fabulous 1940's style.

 Getting the "perfect fit"!

We love Joan's Angelina Shrug so much 
that we created an Angelina Workshop with Joan.

To help our attendees get the "perfect fit"
for their Angelina Shrug 
we had a fitting clinic with Joan on Saturday, as well.

Joan is famous for her fitting techniques.  
All the ladies that attended, raved about their "fitting time" with Joan.

Attendee, Meg Bland of Lady Bug Fiber Co. commented:
"I loved the fitting information 
on adapting patterns to my unique body type.  
This is so helpful not only to knitting but for other garment construction as well."  

Kathy B. had this to say about the fitting clinic:
"She's awesome!    
Great information.  I will now have perfect fitting sweaters!"

Mary R. said:
 "I'm thrilled!  
She makes you feel better about yourself and 
your female body figure."

 White Lies Designs Trunk Show

Now showing:
 White Lies Designs Trunk Show.

Joan began her company White Lies Designs in 2001
and we love her gorgeous patterns.  

You can come in and see the beautiful garments in person 
now through Saturday, March 17th. 

We also have the Trunk Show patterns in stock for you.

Gabrielle Vest & Angelina Shrug

If you missed out on our special day with Joan,
we still have a few books left autographed by Joan.
Just stop in or give us a call to purchase our books
autographed by Joan. 

Also, stay tuned because we can't wait to have another day
with Joan in our yarn boutique again sometime soon!

Danielle & Joan

Thank you to everyone who came to our special event 
and made this such a fabulous afternoon with our favorite local Designer,
Joan McGowan-Michael!
