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 was located in the small mountain town of Pine, Colorado on the peaceful South Fork of the South Platte River.

We've recently moved to the Grand Island area. The studio s 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. My grandmother 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 25 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. I truly love all things knitting. Remember to #livelaughknit
