Fiber Art Artist : Knitting
Worcester County, MD
Provides Instruction: Knitting
Victoria has been knitting since childhood. Her first fascination with knitting began with the older lady who lived next door. Her name was Mamie Guthrie, a native of Killarney, Ireland. She used to sit on her front porch and knit for hours each day. At age six, Victoria enjoyed watching beautiful knit garments come to life in Mamie’s hands and hearing stories about her childhood in Ireland.
Victoria’s career as a knitting teacher started at the Reston Community Center in 2009. She has taught many women (and some men) how to knit. Victoria and her husband/business partner, Mike, have recently relocated to Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
Mike and Victoria decided to start this Ireland Tour business after the successful Ireland mini-reunion with his West Point classmates in 2012. Since then they have hosted over 400 guests in County Killarney and County Cork. For more information about Victoria’s Ireland Tours, visit her website and Facebook page.
