This is a Live One Time Zoom Event on Saturday July 31th at 1pm Eastern, 12pm Central, 11am Mountain, 10am Pacific.
In this Fiberside Chat we’ll be in the presence of the “Queen Mother of Brioche”, Nancy Marchant! She will share the history of how she developed the brioche stitch and tuck stitches for hand knitters too. We’ll be heartened to learn that although she’s been ‘brioching’ for years she still finds the stitch difficult to read in some circumstances. Nancy will share tips and tricks to help you in your next brioche project. We’ll see many examples from her books and get an insider view of her latest book idea – Knitting Brioche Shapes. Whether you’re experienced, a novice, or completely intimidated by this stitch – you won’t want to miss this Chat!!
Nancy Marchant was born in Indiana but Amsterdam has been her home for more than 40 years. Her first published knitting pattern was in 1974. She’s seen knitting styles and techniques change over the years and has built up quite a collection of knitwear designs. Nancy has studied the nuances of the brioche stitch and developed new and exciting stitch patterns and techniques for achieving beautiful brioche and tuck stitch results. She is the author of Knitting Brioche, Knitting Fresh Brioche, Leafy Brioche, Tuck Stitches, Knitting Brioche Lace, and Brioche Knitting.
