Rochester Knitting Guild Welcomes
Kim McBrien Evans

Spring Workshops:
May 6, 7, 8, 9, 2022

The Rochester Knitting Guild is delighted to welcome Kim McBrien Evans for our
Spring 2022 Workshops! Curiosity and exploration is the focus of Canadian knitwear
designer and indie hand dyer, Kim McBrien Evans. A lifelong love of colour, texture,
pattern, and shape prompted Kim to transition from working artist to textile maven. Her
knitwear designs are known for their ability to turn an abstract idea into a wearable
reality while simultaneously fitting and complimenting a wide range of bodies. She
lives and works in the woods of Central Ontario, Canada.

Her yarn company, Indigodragonfly, is renowned for its vibrant colours, offbeat names,
and ever expanding plan for world domination. She is co-author of Custom Shawls for
the Curious and Creative Knitter (with Kate Atherley). Her work has appeared in Vogue
Knitting, Knitscene, Knit.Wear, Knitting Magazine (UK), A Stash of One’s Own (ed. Clara
Parkes), The Sewcialists, Digits & Threads, and Uppercase.

Our 2022 Guild Workshops will feature Kim’s amazing classes that explore the tools
and techniques to make sweaters that fit every body–you will learn how to design or
adjust patterns to fit YOU just right. Cheri and Cindy took several of Kim’s classes
through VKL and were really impressed with Kim’s inclusive style and accessible tools
and techniques. So whether you’ve never knit a sweater, or struggle to knit one that
actually fits, or you’ve knit a lot of sweaters but want to up your game, we think you’ll
find these classes as eye-opening and transformational as we did!
