My big news is that I will be teaching a series of courses at our farmhouse beginning this August. Inspired by other book authors including Patricia Wells, Susan Hermann Loomis, Ricki Carroll, Denyse Schmidt, Joel Salatin and Natalie Chanin, The Farmer and I have decided to open our home and my studio up to a very small number of students. It's going to be really fun (if not a whole heck of a lot of work to prepare for). We're going to try to give all the students a real taste of farm life along with some great knitting instruction.
You can read all about it on my new descriptional blog/website - link below.
Kristin Nicholas Presents "Get Stitched on the Farm Classes."
Spread the word for me! If these fly, I'll be adding more to the schedule. I can guarantee you a memory you will keep for the rest of your life! As my mom says "Kristin, this place just is like no other."
BOOK PARTY - MAY 5-6
to celebrate the publication of my new book
CRAFTING A PATTERNED HOME.
Our colorful 1751 farmhouse will be open to the public. On view will be many of the projects that are featured in Crafting A Pattern Home along with many other things I have made over the years.
This event will be a celebration of the handmade. I hope the day will inspire you to add some pattern and color to your home.
The event is FREE. Books will be available along with some other things I have made. For more information and directions, see the EVENTBRITE PAGE HERE. Although tickets are not mandatory, it will help me get a count to know what to expect. Hope to see you here in western Massachusetts in May.
