String would not be String without Lidia! Lidia joined String about a month before we opened in Fall 2002. As our in-house designer, Lidia has designed at least a garment a month for String for the last 11 years, not to mention writing hundreds of custom patterns. Lidia also oversees our finishing services, and she works her magic to make each of our customer's pieces look couture. In addition to Lidia's designs for String, she has published extensively in Vogue Knitting, Interweave, and several books.
Lisa is our instructor extraordinaire! Since she joined us on a part time basis in 2007, Lisa has developed a number of very special courses, most notable of which is our annual Summer Camp Design Workshop, and Lisa's innovative Directed Knitting. And Lisa too is a well published designer with designs published in Vogue Knitting, Interweave, and TSC pattern books. Lisa has also done a number of well loved designs for String including our fabulous sampler blanket.
Whitney joined the team with String's move to the 74th street location and has had a lifelong love of fiber arts including knitting and crochet. Her background in fine art and photography gives her a unique perspective and eye for detail.
