Standard

While we usually share new products and events here, today we are saddened to note the passing of a creative force and knitting friend.  Ann Swanson was half of the design team of Two Old Bags and she died last week after a long battle with cancer. Large-lucy

Two Old Bags was the partnership of Ann and Katie Nagourney – their design team was one of the first to provide us with felting patterns.  Hundreds of knitters tried their hand at felting with their designs – especially the "Lucy Bag". 

Ann lived just down the road in Rochester, Minnesota and often visited the Twin Cities – she was always a welcome visitor to Needlework Unlimited and we will miss her.
