Information for Attendees
- Hello Knitters and Spinners!
Here are a few very last-minute updates about the 2012 Nordic Knitting Conference:
We have sent out student and conference information to everyone attached as PDFs. Most of the homework along with materials lists and fees are available on the website (http://www.nordicmuseum.org/docs/NKConference2012DetailsUpdate.pdf ) so if you have forgotten what is needed for your classes, check there first. Also we have been notified that several of you have not received the updates, and that they have been found in Junk Mail. Pass the word along about that!
As instructors have provided additional information we have sent that out as well:
· Annemor Sundbø has provided homework for her Design Your Own Norwegian Mitten for Knitting and for the Hugin and Munin class.
· Susanna Hansson has provided additional homework for Thumbs Up!
· Sandy De Master and Mary Germain have an updated materials fee and supply list. The information is the same as the website.
· Mary Scott Huff made a correction to homework for Fearless Two-color Knitting.
We believe we have emailed everyone in these classes with the latest information. If you have not received updates, please check your Junk Mail folder, then contact us and we will email the homework to you.

> Welcome to the Nordic Heritage Museum's 2012 Nordic Knitting ConferenceNordic Mittens! We
> look forward to the start of the conference. Here is some important information to help you plan for the conference and your classes.
> Location and Parking
> The Nordic Heritage Museum is located at 3014 NW 67th Street in Seattle, Washington (Entrance to the museum is on 68th St). This area of Seattle is better known as Ballard, which is known for its Scandinavian history and culture. The Museum is located in a residential area and near METRO bus routes #17, #18, and #75. There have been recent changes to METRO bus routes so to plan your bus trip and to determine bus fares, visit http://tripplanner.kingcounty.gov Parking is available in the Museum's parking lot and along nearby residential streets. Please see the enclosed map regarding the location of the Museum.
> One off-site venue will be used during the Conference. The Sunset Hill Community Center, located at 3003 NW 66th St., is within 2 blocks of the Museum and classes will be held there throughout the Conference.
> Registration will start at 8:15 am at the Museum each conference day. Registration will not be
> available at the off-site venue. Plan to check in on your first day of class to receive your conference materials. The registration desk will have volunteers available throughout the conference to answer your questions.
> Lunches, Banquet, and Happy Hour
> As the Museum is located in a residential area of Seattle, we encourage you to order a lunch from the Museum or to bring your own lunch each day. There are restaurants and grocery stores within driving distance, however the lunch hour may not provide you enough time to enjoy your meal and get back to the Museum for your class. No lunches will be sold at the Museum during the conference.The Banquet will be on Saturday, October 6th from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. The banquet is a wonderful opportunity to meet other conference goers and Nordic knitting and spinning enthusiasts over a decidedly Northwest-inspired dinner. We are delighted that Annemor Sundbø will give the keynote address. There will be a limited number of banquet tickets available until they are sold out.
> The Museum will host a Happy Hour on Friday, October 5th from 5:00 7:00pm. Enjoy wine and appetizers while mingling with your classmates and instructors. There will be a raffle during the Happy Hour.
> Books, Yarn, and Knitting Accessories
> The Museum's Gift Store is your knitting book headquarters! The Gift Store will have books available from many of the class instructors. Acorn Street Shop and Jorstad Creek will be the vendors selling their goods at the museum this year.
> Prepare to be tempted !
