        Registrations received before November 17 will be considered a
        November 17 postmark. Be aware that some classes may fill up quickly.
        While a November 17 postmark gives you a better chance of getting

        Despite a childhood aversion to knitting, Elsebeth Lavold has grown
        into one of the world's leading knitwear designers. Elsebeth began
        her design career in the 1970s, selling designs to magazines and yarn
        companies, and publishing her first two books in the next decade.
        Well established by the 1990s, Elsebeth began a project to illustrate
        a book about historic sites in the Stockholm area. Inspired by the
        beautiful ornamentations of the Viking era, she focuses on cable
        patterns. This work is the foundation of The Viking Knits project, a
        book and exhibit which was first displayed in 1997 and brought
        Elsebeth international recognition. This is the exhibit that the
        Nordic Heritage Museum will be featuring. In the ten years since
        then, Elsebeth has taught workshops at knitting conferences around
        the world, including the first NHM Nordic Knitting Conference in
        2007. She has published many books of original designs. She launched
        her own line of yarn in a joint venture with KFI, the leading yarn
        company in the United States
