Flours and Fibers: A History
We set up shop at the Freight House Farmers' Market in Davenport, Iowa, and peddled our wares, mostly baked good and handknits. We had a blast working at the market, and people really seemed to enjoy our creations! Emily's caramels were such a hit that I continued to sell them long after she returned to school!
For two summers Emily and I worked at the market. We met all kinds of interesting people, many of whom were involved in the fiber and knitting community in the Quad Cities. Emily even scored a an internship at Miss Effie's farm! Eventually, I landed a gig moonlighting at the fabulous LYS, Knit & Knot. I had taught a few classes elsewhere, but I really started to get into teaching and designing after I started working there.
It's been three years since then, and a lot has changed, but I'm as passionate about knitting as I've ever been! I now have several original knitting patterns for sale on Ravelry, and I have even more in the works! A new baby and a naughty puppy keep me busy, but I still find time to knit and design! Stay tuned to our blog to follow my knitting adventures and other tidbits of our lives!
I am always happy to provide pattern support through Ravelry (userID: floursandfibers) or by email at floursandfibersATgmailDOTcom.
