Galina Khmeleva
Galina , owner of Skaska Designs and author of "Gossamer Webs" and "The Design Collection," has earned a reputation as one of the most respected and knowledgeable lace knitting instructors in the country. As a former clothing and costume designer who worked with the 'aristocracy' of the music and theater society in St. Petersburg, she was a pioneer in breaking down barriers in the 'new' Russia that allowed Russian women the opportunity to achieve ownership of private companies. Principal student to Orenburg's lace-knitting elite, Galina brings the classic style and revered traditional knitting techniques of Russian lace to her classes, which are full of fun and also unforgettable cultural experiences.
