Ethereal Lace Exhibition with Franki Franklin

Saturday, August 16th, 4-6pm

Ethereal Lace Exhibition with Franki Franklin Join us for a special exhibition and artist talk with lace knitting artisan, Franki Franklin.  She's bringing up several of her gorgeous shawls, along with tools that she uses to create them. 

Franki Franklin learned to knit when she was ten, but didn't fall in love with lace until the 1990's when she discovered Marianne Kinzel.  After realizing her absolute love for size 000 needles and knitting with (basically) thread, she progressed quickly to the designs of Herbert Niebling.  Further progress found her creating and blocking ethereal shawls which brought their own challenges and she found it necessary to create some rather interesting tools in order to achieve her goals.  

Whether or not you love, love, love lace, you'll be astounded by these magnificent creations!  We can't wait to see you here.
