What's in a Name? Why I Chose the Name "Argent Thread"

I recently caught the knitting bug and started coming across so many awesome products and sites that I wanted to share. I also wanted to document my creative journey, with the spirit that the journey can be more important, and usually more fun than the destination. So why the name "Argent Thread"? "ARGENT" means 'silver' in French, and it's a nod to my great-grandfather who was a blacksmith once he immigrated to Canada, but who my grandma once told me, in secret and with a lot of pride in her eyes, that he didn't merely work 'base' metals.

Websites I Love

Here are some links for just a little taste of some of the wonderful resources I've found, with the note that the quilting scene in North America is way more active than here in Europe, at least from first appearances. Craftsy - a website to learn any craft you want, any craft at all! It also has some of the best teachers in the world, and the awesome materials to do the job. Tissus.net - the best website for fabric and quilting supplies I've found in Europe so far, with a big selection, quick delivery and excellent customer service. The Midnight Quilt Show - a fun and laid-back way to learn a lot about quilting in a short time through excellent Youtube videos with quilting expert Angela Wal

 

ABOUT

Annette Fehr ~ Lyon, France

I come from a very artsy and craftsy family from the beautiful Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Canada. Following a degree in Urban Planning & Design, I first moved to Zurich, Switzerland, before moving to the Beaujolais wine region of France where I'm constantly inspired by the natural beauty surrounding me. I took up knitting several years ago as a way to relax, reduce stress and as a child-compatible activity. I've experimented with all kinds of arts & crafts throughout my life including drawing, painting, calligraphy, architectural drawing, sculpting, jewellery-making, photography, quilting, embroidery, and crochet, and I was instantly fascinated by the infinite design possibilities, vibrant colour combinations and touchableness offered by hand-knitting. I dream of one day combining my passion for knitting with yarn possibilities appropriate for the hot climates which I love so much.
