Sanjo Silk has some amazingly creative artists who use our yarns and materials to make their art pieces. This blog post features the Julie Pongrac, Master Knitter, and is the first in a series of posts featuring some of these stunningly talented people.

Julie Pongrac is a Canadian artist based in Vancouver.  Dedicated to producing garments and sculpture from natural materials such as linen, silk, mohair and wool, she draws from an extensive fibre arts background primarily focusing on knitting.  Inspiration is drawn from her excursions into the natural environment from the rainforests of the British Columbia coastline and to the highest peaks of the mountains.  Julie Pongrac Studio where she produces her work can be found at 1000 Parker St in East Vancouver.
