workshop with susan guagliumi

A few weeks back, I was lucky enough to attend a workshop with machine knitting innovator, designer, writer and teacher, Susan Guagliumi. This woman has been on the scene since the early eighties and has a serious amount of expertise and passion for the craft, so it was a privilege to listen to her talk and to watch her demonstrate bridging on her machine. I must admit that I was so engaged by her that I didn’t absorb much of the actual techniques! I just wanted to absorb her stories, thoughts and energy… I figured I could learn the techniques from her book anytime but it’s a rare thing to have access to her in person.

Below are some of the amazing swatches she brought along to demonstrate some of the many applications for bridging.
