trunk show


"Join us for a very special designer trunk show! Los Angeles-based indie knitwear designer Rachel Barish of Born & Raised Knits is sending up all of her summeriest designs, and they work up so fast they'll be done for our annual heat wave! Crop tops are her jam, and many of the pieces are designed using marled yarns from lots of the indie dyers we carry! (She works and teaches at The Altered Stitch in L.A., which we like to think of as our SoCal sister shop because of their love of indie dyed yarns!) The show will run until the evening of Sunday, July 15th." - The Black Squirrel, Berkeley, CA.
