TKGA Member Meeting & Fun Night: 2013 Summer Knit & Crochet Show

Friday, July 19, 2013

Have you met Steven Berg, owner and creative director of the StevenBe brand?

He dresses like a rock star, adorned with a self-designed knit sweater made from cassette tapes, leather pants, and eye-catching jewelry! He describes himself as "loud and brassy.” His educational background extends from MCAD to Parsons to the Fashion Institute of Technology. His design career has taken him to all corners of the world, from designing fabrics in Hong Kong to consulting for Versace in Milan, Bill Blass in Montreal, and the urban Stacy Adams in Miami. His one-of-a-kind designs have also made him a hit with the A-listers of Hollywood, from Jennifer Aniston to Mischa Barton and many more. Steven brings his true passion for fiber arts home to Minneapolis, where he has created a midwestern mecca for visiting fiber artists, teachers, connoisseurs, and the next generation of "Glitter Knitters.” He is the owner of the Yarn Garage, located in a circa 1911 Victorian building bursting with the latest yarns. His newest venue, StevenBe, in a turn-of-the-century restored firehouse, serves as a personal studio for all his creations and innovations and houses one of the most unique shopping and creative environments the fiber world has to offer. People come from all over to experience Steven’s personal advice and direction in their own "Steven-inspired projects.” Quoting the master himself, "There are no mistakes, only variations.”


Fiber meets Fashion:

Steven will demonstrate his magical techniques of Fiber Fusion, creating current runway trends using a variety of textures and textiles. Their fiber mixology comes primarily from Be Sweet's yarn collection made by South African artisans for the export market. Steven will showcase projects using larger needles and a variety of exotic fiber combinations that create luxurious and truly unique and fashion forward accessories. After this session, you will be able to recreate Steven’s magic at home using his fabulous tips and tricks!

Knit happy, glitter it up!!
