Sheryl Thies (pronounced more or less like "tea" with an "s") will be our guest speaker sharing about creativity. It's been said that creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes and art is knowing which mistakes to keep. Sounds simple but creativity can be tricky and elusive. Sometimes creative risks are rewarded; sometimes they're just messy. We'll take a look at the creative process and ways to tap into our creative ability.
Sheryl has been selling her designs for over 10 years. She has authored 5 books, co-authored 5 more, has been a contributor to both knit and crochet magazines, and designed for yarn companies. Being "bi crafty", Sheryl enjoys both hooks and needles and she relies heavily on "Mother Nature" for her inspiration. Her most recent knitting book, Knitting By Nature, was inspired by the Gurneys Seed Catalog. Her most recent book, Tunisian Crochet Encore, was released in 2013. Sheryl lives with her husband in Fitchburg, Wisconsin.
