Come and "Get Stitched" at Kristin Nicholas' Leyden Glen Farm

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."

Wow! This is such a great opportunity! Thanks for opening your home, I know it will be inspiring for so many! Best of luck.

How exciting!!! i would LOVE something like that -- especially since it includes a taste of farm life too. Since it's not practical for me to actually come, I sure hope you'll be sharing some photos!

Oh! That sounds like so much fun! I wish I weren't all the way across the country. I think some very lucky knitters are going to have a wonderful experience.

By the way, your sunflower fields inspired me to plant a sunflower garden this year. Here's hoping for gorgeous flowers! :)

It seems all your early commenters are regretting that, like me, they live too far away to take advantage of this great opportunity! Never mind, there are plenty of East Coast knitters and stitchers who will love to visit the farm and learn from you in person. Best wishes,
Gretchen

My friend hosts such classes--she's in Guilford-- www.otterpondbindery.com She offers beautiful bookbinding classes. It's one of my children's favorite places in the world.

Sounds great and I am very interested but I am a beginner knitter - is it open to beginners?

Kristi said...

Kristin we must be channeling each other...I just told someone the other day that my goal was to get an invite to Kristin Nicholas' home so I could check it out! In a good way only...not meant to be creepy, honest. :)
