Bristol Ivy

Bristol loves to teach and talk about the fundamental underlying structure of knitted garments, which makes her one of our most beloved designers. 
In addition, her background in social anthropology prompts her to pause and consider how the COVID 19 pandemic is impacting fiber lovers. She finds a silver lining in the opportunity that virtual gatherings provide, allowing for more people than ever before to have access to designers and their work from the comfort of their own homes. This hour with Bristol will be so FUN!! Register Here
