Anel Meerholz, a first time vendor at the festival this year, tells us about her business Imagine Yarn.
“Our line includes felted and crochet purses as well as exclusively designed kits which will allow you to create your own fabulous purse. I wanted to make it easy for anyone to create the purses that I love and so I developed patterns, sourced the components from across the globe, and assembled amazing kits.”
My love for natural fibers was nurtured while growing up in beautiful, wild South Africa. There is a creative high when I felt a purse, and that process is what inspires me. Working with raw materials and seeing how a beautiful purses is born is an amazing feeling.
My favourite purse is one made for a good friend’s special occasion. I found the Malabrigo yarn on a road trip to the United States and used a vintage looking frame to create this Stephanie purse. Join me at the fabulous fibre festival and share in this creative event!
