The Dropped Stitch is nestled in the mountain community of Pine Colorado. We want to share our passion for knitting and are dedicated to helping our customers grow in their knitting confidence. Every project that is finished by our students warms our hearts and gives us great joy.
A Message From Our Owner
My name is Deborah Gilbert and I am the owner and instructor of The Dropped Stitch Studio. The Studio opened on January 7, 2016 and is located in the small mountain town of Pine, Colorado on the peaceful South Fork of the South Platte River.
The view from the studio is very relaxing. It is a great place to knit, learn, and fix mistakes. I enjoy watching my students learn, grow, and venture out of their box and create knitted pieces that leave them feeling very successful. Their success is my success!
I learned to knit when I was 10 from my very talented British grandmother who lived to be 103. Until the age of 102, she crocheted a baby blanket each week for a shelter for unwed mothers-to-be.
Before she died, I finally showed her that I had mastered making socks. She was so very proud of me and I know she would love the studio as much as I do today. She is my inspiration to this day — such a giving heart!
I have 15 years of teaching experience. I value the ladies who have passed all their tricks and tips down to me and feel the privilege to do the same to my students today. I pride myself on being able to crunch numbers, adjust patterns, and even create a few designs of my own.
When I realized that knitting involved numbers and math, it opened up a whole way of problem-solving that helps me everyday. I love to teach!
Knitting is my passion and sharing that passion brings a smile to my face.
