My Most Popular Classes: in Real Life and Online
For years I've kept myself busy writing the Stitch 'n Bitch series of knitting and crocheting books you are hopefully familiar with. But now I've decided to take a short break from book-writing, and focus on some other ways of doing what I love to do best: teaching folks to knit. That's why I invite you to come take my classes at Vogue Knitting in Chicago, online at Creativebug, and at an exciting knitter's retreat in the Berkshires this February. Read on for more!
Raging Wool: A Knitter's Winter Retreat in the Berkshires
Come join me at the beautiful Rowe Camp and Conference Center for 3 days of learning, friendship and fun! The retreat runs from February 15 - February 18.
In this fun weekend intensive, I'll teach you the ins and outs of lace knitting, how to knit with beads, quick and easy cabling techniques, how to create picture-perfect colorwork, and more. Even if you have experience with these skills, you’ll learn new and innovative ways of doing them, giving you greater insight that will translate into better results. We’ll also have a yarn tasting, where you’ll get to knit with a variety of luxury yarns. And of course, there will be plenty of time to stitch ‘n ...well, you know.
Nestled in the beautiful Berkshire Mountains in Western Massachusetts, the Rowe Conference Center offers exceptional workshops in a small, intimate forum. In addition to classes, take some time to walk in their enchanted forest, marvel at the sights and sounds of the waterfall, and delight in the tranquility of the old millpond. In the evenings, knit by the hearth in the gathering room and watch the glow of the fire.
The price of the retreat is based on a sliding scale, and accomodations, including all meals, start at just $135 per night.
