Meet Our Guest Teachers

Michele Bernstein

Michele Lee Bernstein designs as PDXKnitterati. She designs mostly accessories, and loves texture (brioche, lace, entrelac, elongated stitches) and how interesting techniques can be used to make small objects sing. Her patterns are available through Ravelry.com

 

Besides designing, Michele loves teaching knitters to be the boss of their knitting! She teaches at local yarn shops, fiber festivals (Madrona Fiber Arts Festival, Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival, VogueKnitting Live!), and guild retreats.  

 

She blogs about knitting, food, and music at PDXKnitterati.com. You can also find her on Instagram, Facebook, Ravelry, and Twitter as PDXKnitterati.

Theressa Silver

Theressa Silver is a freelance designer, teacher, and author. Her most recent book, “Knitting Wild” showcases the beauty of America’s national parks and wildlife refuges. Theressa is a biologist by training and the influence of math and science can be seen in many of her designs. When she is not knitting she likes to be outside kayaking or hiking. She lives in Milwaukie, OR with her husband, son, two cats, and a dog, all of whom occasionally participate one way or another in the knitting process. Theressa can be found on Ravelry and Instagram as “argentgal.”

Kim Winters

Kim Winter describes herself as a joyful and passionate sweater knitter and motivated educator. She knits about 10-12 sweaters a year but is shooting for 15 in 2019! Kim loves to also knit about 3-4 shawls, and an occasional hat or pair of mitts.

 

Kim learned to knit 27 years ago after moving to Portland and getting married. She discovered a cute little shop in NW Portland called Spindleshanks (now closed) and took classes from the fabulous Kathryn Creswell.

 

Kim’s greatest accomplishment was learning to “change the gauge” in sweater knitting. Her currents plans are to release a video tutorial on techniques.
