Steven is from Minneapolis USA and is one of the busiest presenters on the US yarn craft circuit. He is is the owner of StevenBe Designs, one of the US's most famous yarn stores, and is also the star of his very own TV production - StevenBe TV.

Steven is a wonderful tutor. His gift lies, not just in technique, but allowing us to look at the way we approach craft, yarn, colour and design. Sometimes it's easy to get stuck in a rut when we are knitting, and Steven is just the person to challenge us to climb out of our self-imposed boxes and be inspired!

Booking details

What’s this booking for?

6 Sep 2019, 7:00pm-9:00pm


Longtime knitter and professional yarn whisperer Steven Berg is here to tell you what your knits and color choices say about you. He will guide you through a quiz that will show you which colors you should be working with to truly represent yourself and then discuss the motion of colors. You will explore techniques to create gradients using your own colors and methods of combining colors to their greatest effect. Bring your favorite hand-knit (or crochet) and share it with Steven for a peek into your personal fiber future-- he knows all, sees all, tells all!

7 Sep 2019, 10:00am-1:00pm


StevenBe never rips out his knitting and he wants you to feel the freedom that he knows every time he picks up his needles. Sit back and enjoy Steven’s best tips and tricks for brioche, short rows, stretchy cast ons and bind offs, increasing, decreasing, running out of yarn (for your project, not your stash--though he can help with that, too!), and for letting go of the idea of perfection and loving the idea of leaving your signature on your project in the form of your own variation!

7 Sep 2019, 2:00pm-5:00pm


Start your next project with a bang with StevenBe, master of the substitution. In this workshop, Steven will guide you through taking your pattern and making it yours with custom yarn substitutions, changing stitch patterns, making gauge modifications, and an artful use of short rows. You will leave this workshop with the confidence and chutzpah it takes to work outside the box--to StevenBe your projects and yourself.

Prices are in NZD and include GST.
