Steven Berg told us at Stitches United that he was about to take a trip to South Africa to research Mohair and he will be having some featured in his shop in Minneapolis, according to the shop’s Facebook page.

Because of the unique sense of play he puts together, he’s been asked lend his magic to Stitches Midwest in support of Halos of Hope, with contest that is BeYond. The goal is to raise money for hats to be shipped to the various cancer centers around the country.  There is more information at THIS LINK (takes you to Halos of Hope’s Website). Participating are Universal Yarns, Purl Soho, Three Irish Girls, Draw Four in launching this event.

He has a cruise sailing away to Haiti, Jamaica and Mexico from Orlando on October 29 to November 5th. He’ll be teaching with Rebecca Combs and Cascade Yarns is a sponsor. Check out the website for more information.

There is a recent announcement, too, that he will be part of Knit Stars 2.0 with friend and queen of brioche, Nancy Marchant, in the first free video!

StevenBe has a website: www.stevenbe.com Also Check out StevenBe.TV where the motto is: All the class and twice the sass for your viewing pleasure!

    I am a brand new knitter (6 months and counting) and have recently discovered the amazing world of fiber arts podcasts. Yayyy! I love it so much! This is my first Marly Bird podcast and I hope to listen to many more. I have become obsessed with all things StevenBe and hope to someday make all of my projects GLITTER as bright as his!

  2. Cyndi B says:

    I love mohair and I’ll definitely be checking out more of Stevenbe. I am new to the yarn world but I’ve always been a glitter girl!

  3. Laura says:

    I have listened to a couple podcasts with StevenBe and he just sounds fabulous. I can see his shop being totally infused with glitter. And if I’m ever in his area I’ll have to check out his unicorn snot! LOL!

  4. Linda Ostruszka says:

    Yarn with glitter really makes a mess but I use it anyways because I love yarn with a sparkle to it.

  5. Holly Hurley says:

    I had the great privilege of taking a class from the Glitter Knitter himself last year in Overland Park, Kansas!

  6. Trisha says:

    Glitter is the name of the game. My knit group uses the term Bling. All the same – love the glitter.

  7. Suzanne says:

    This podcast with Stephen was so uplifting that if conversation could leave a trace, this one would be sparkling with glitter.

  8. Debra Austin says:

    I really enjoyed the podcast and I cannot wait to go to StevenBe’s store in Minneapolis. I am sure to find some beautiful glitter yarn there!!

  9. Kim says:

    I’m so excited to heat a shout out for my LYS Loops in Tulsa, OK and Shelley Brander. I’ve already signed up for Knit Stars! And I first learned to knit when Steven and Stephen came to Tulsa, so I could participate in their workshop. Looking forward to the next glitter adventure with StevenBe!

  10. [email protected] says:

    StevenBe is so much fun and brings great new ideas to the industry. One day I’ll make it to the store to see your glitter world….it is just a bit far from Chicago, but catch you at Stitches.

  11. Staci Lockman says:

    I love StevenBe’s energy! He adds a bit of glitter to all knitterly life. Thank you, dear man!

  12. Katherine Zammit Marmara says:

    Who doesn’t need a bit more glitter in their life! I currently have purple glitter nails to add a bit more sparkle into my life!

  13. Lori Biamonte says:

    My granddaughter finds all clothes boring unless they have glitter! I love to knit sparkly things for her. Fun podcast. I have a diamond ponchini kits by Steven that I’m anxious to knit. It’s in the queue!

  14. Jenny Y. says:

    That was a fun podcast for sure. I was smiling the whole time on my drive to work! If ever I get to visit Minneapolis Steven’s shop would be a must see. Would have to buy his glitter just so that I can tell everyone it is unicorn snot (that just brings a kaleidoscope of colors and pictures to my mind)! Thank you Marly and Steven for a very enjoyable podcast.

  15. Lisa says:

    Steven Be is glitter personified! I’m always so amazed at how much he always has going on. He and his booth are one of my favorite stops at Stitches West.

  16. Suzanne says:

    Isn’t it true that anything good is made better with glitter? Love when the two of you get together to talk!

  17. Mary Radhuber says:

    I work in a craft store so, in addition to getting to see and feel all the new yarns, I come home covered in free glitter!

  18. DeeAnn says:

    Glitter Power! I learned to knit because I saw a sample poncho knit with sequiny and glittery yarn. I’d love to visit Steven Be’s shop in Minneapolis and I have already checked out StevenBe.TV. Thanks, Marly, for introducing me to another great personality in the yarn world!
