It’s always a good time for a bit of happy news, and we’re pleased to have some today.
Please make welcome Nashville’s own Allison Volek Shelton, who will be an official point of contact, moderator, and general shenaniganist in the MDK Lounge.
The MDK Lounge has a big place in our hearts—after all, we two first “met” on a yarn company chat board in the Early Internet Times. Allison joins MDK’s beloved knitting expert Nell Ziroli, who will continue to offer practical help and pattern support to knitters, as she’s been doing since day one of the Lounge.
Allison joined the MDK team in 2020. She is a knitter, weaver, sewist, and designer. She has owned her own textile businesses and collaborated with other fiber-related enterprises—you may know her most recently from Fringe Supply Company. Given Allison’s range and skills, we’re getting her all loaded up with fun-enhancing future projects for MDK, including an active role in the MDK Lounge.
Come On Over
As ever, we hope that readers will come to the MDK Lounge to hang out, ask questions, offer advice, and share photos, comments, jokes, songs, and recipes—and just generally wallow in good cheer and knitting joy. We know you’ll make Allison welcome, and we know she will be a great moderator. Allison will be keeping an eye on Lounge postings, and you are also welcome to message her directly in the Lounge, where she is MDK-Allison.
Stay safe, and knit on.
Ann and Kay
