Laura learned to knit when she and a co-worker dropped in at a learn to knit class at a yarn store.  The instructor’s critique of her knitting style really spurred her to be a success at the new skill. That was about 10 years ago. In the following years she has become a mommy to two kids and begun her business, Slipped Stitch Studios (website: SlippedStitchStudios2https://www.slippedstitchstudios.com/). Last fall, she learn to sew. As she studied her project bags and realizing what she liked and didn’t like so much, she began creating new bags that she could market.

She has worked hard to have a new bag each year for Madrona and Stitches West. Slipped Stitch Studios creates new bags and buttons each month. Pattern Wallets has become a favorite product for herself and crafters alike. Marly’s favorite and Laura’s most popular product are the two skein bags. Bag of the Month (or BOM as referred to in the Ravelry group (link to the group: https://www.ravelry.com/groups/slipped-stitch-studios) has also been a popular way to collect per a favorite genre. It began with Dr. Who, and has progressed to Alice in Wonderland (the current one) through Jane Austen and a zombie version of Jane Eyre. Each collection includes all kinds of fun things like stitch markers and tool tins, perhaps a skein of yarn in a matching colorway. Some items can be purchased as add-ons, but there are items that are tossed in as a ‘Surprise’. All given a great deal of thought and possibly put together by hand in very unconventional ways….
