Meet David Troyer, another behind the scenes driver of Knit the Bridge. Along with creating the KtB mobile app, David has been a critical cheerleader and supporter throughout the entire journey and has now bravely taken on mailing out indiegogo perks and t-shirt orders. Thank you David for your hard work, calm attitude, and perseverance.
1.What is your History with Pittsburgh? I followed my partner, Amanda Gross, to Pittsburgh in 2008 and haven’t looked back since!
2. What is your History with Fiber Art? I was introduced to Fiber Arts through my Grandmothers’ doilies, quilts and blankets. I also dabbled in cross stitch as a teenager.
3. What are you most excited about doing (or having done) as part of the core Knit the Bridge Team? Knitting railings on the knitting machines at The Plate was a great memory that I will never forget.
4. What do you see as the challenges? As the project winds down, I think the greatest challenge will be sustaining the community that was forged throughout the process. I’m hopeful that people will find ways to collaborate in similar ways that they did for KTB.
