JUNE PROGRAM: Debra Lambert Freeform Knitted – Yarn Art
- Meeting Time: 10:00 a.m. – Noon, Monday, June 10, 2019.
- San Antonio Garden Center 3310 N. New Braunfels Avenue, SATX 78209.
Debra Lambert of Picasso’s Moon is known for her highly creative use of natural fibers, yarns, and leather used innovatively in knitwear, crocheted work and weavings.
What people say about her shop and studio:
The environment inside feels more like an eclectic knitter’s home than a shop. Draping shawls hang from the ceilings, wrapped around the furniture, alongside a plethora of beautiful yarns of all colors. Debra’s yarn comes in small batches, but yarn from the same batch is never the same–each skein is unique, some even featuring multiple materials bound together. The speckles of color bring life to the knitwear scattered around the room. Even with the diversity of the yarns, there’s something cohesive about Debra’s creations. You will be inspired by Debra’s passion and creativity!
What Debra says:
I have been a fiber artist for as long as I can remember. I put myself through college by working in a yarn shop. I have a bachelor’s degree in interior design from the University of Arkansas and have lived in Sarasota, Florida since 1984
Knitting is my first love but spinning hand-spun art-yarn, weaving and dyeing are in the running to be my favorites. Yarn and fiber are the clay to my sculptures. There is nothing better than the smell of fleece, and spinning it into yarn is so . . . . ahhhhh.
I design my own knitting patterns and love seeing how my hand-dyed yarns knit up or weave up. I have the best job – I get to travel all over to teach free-form knitting, spinning and weaving. Join me in a fiber filled journey!Debra Lambert
