Today we are spotlighting Ali! We first met Ali as a client at one of our Knitting in Recovery classes. Now Ali has been clean and sober for over a year, and she is one of our teachers for Knitting in Recovery!
Over the summer, Ali submitted several pieces to the Ventura County Fair and won three 3rd place, one 2nd place, and one 1st place ribbons!
Ali is currently teaching for Knitting in Recovery at one facility and will be starting at a few new facilities in the coming months. We are also hoping to start a knitting and crochet group at the VC Arts Collective in the Pacific View Mall, which Ali will teach.
Ali has several pieces on display and available for purchase at the VC Arts Collective, including several beanies slouchy beanies and adorable clutch purses.
She has finished several recent commissions including leg warmers, beanies, and blankets, and she is currently working on a king-sized blanket for a family friend. She is already planning on making beanies in sports team and school colors to have for sale at the mall space, such as black and gold for Ventura High School.
Thank you, Ali, for helping our program grow and better serve our community.
