There is a wonderful article on the TKGA (The Knitting Guild of America) website about Knitting History and TKGA History. Barbara was one of the early members of TKGA and was one of those honored at the 2010 TKGA Conference. (Be sure to scroll down to “Early Members Honored at 2010 TKGA Conference”).
I met Barbara years ago when I attended one of the first Stitches West Conventions which was held in Portland, OR. We were passengers on the same shuttle from the airport to the hotel … I was in awe to be surrounded by a group of knitting teachers…and Barbara was one of those teachers. A few years later Jean came to one of the Skein Lane workshops with her guest – Barbara Scott. A small world…and great to connect with Barbara again. Over the years Barbara pops in to the knitting workshops when she and Jean have a “rendevous” in the Bay Area.
