Our beloved knitting teacher, Jani Fellows, is moving to Los Angeles to be near her family -- and Fresh City Life and all of our knitting students wish her a bon voyage!
Jani Fellows was there at the beginning of our knitting program. In the fall of 2004, before Fresh City Life had a name, when it was still just a pilot project, I put together our first knitting class to see what kind of response we'd get for fibers workshops. Thirty-five people came the first night and Jani was a bit surprised by the turn-out.
In the spirit of Fresh City Life, new events debut this year!
Denverites maybe never had it so good. Fresh City Life is offering up new and retooled events for you this year. In successive posts, I'll let you in on some of the cool stuff that is booked and some of the things that are in the works -- but not fully-baked (just yet).
Miriam Hopkins and Herbert Marshall star in the Lubitsch classic Trouble in Paradise. In the early 1930s, Miriam Hopkins was dashing between starring roles on Broadway and chasing her own rising star in Hollywood films. Then along came Bette Davis; her meteoric rise to fame nearly obliterated Miriam Hopkins' presence on the screen.
Fortunately, there are a few gems that were filmed just prior to Bette becoming the queen of Hollywood that showcase Miriam Hopkins at her best. She had swell comic timing, and a beautiful face made for closeups.
