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.

Kristin Nicholas at Common Cod Fiber Guild
Big news! I'll be speaking at The Common Cod Fiber Guild in Cambridge, MA next Friday night - September 11th. The "show" starts at 7 p.m. and it is being held at The Stata Center at
Now, you are probably wondering why I've got MITin giant letters here. Well, here's what I think - I can't believe that me -- little old knitwear/textile designer and color enthusiast -- will be allowed to speak at such an institution, much less walk in the door! Mind you, I'm not speaking to any of the students (at least not officially). I'm speaking to a fiber guild full of warm and enthusiastic knitters, stitchers, and crocheters - but still, something I could slip onto my resume (don't you think? that is if I ever have to do one of those again!). This just blows me away. I think I may have to name drop all next week while I'm dropping Julia off at school (just kidding!) I usually see MIT in the science pages of the NYTimes, on PBS on some smart, scientifically intense, computer (or whatever else intensely smart people study) special, you know... And now, I'm going there. How cool.
If you want to come to MIT to hear me speak, check out the link here. You can join and hear me speak or you can come for a small fee and think about joining the guild while I am rambling on about color. I'll have lots of samples with me including samples from the new book and my old.
On September 12th, I'm teaching a class for the Common Cod Guild at Windsor Button in Boston from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. We're calling it "Creative Embroidery on Knits." I'm not sure of how you sign up, etc. but if you check out this link, I think you can find some information. It will be 3 hours of fun and stitching so please come if you can!
Hope to see some of you at MIT! (Sorry about that, can't help myself.... MIT, MIT, MIT, wow!) Thanks to the Common Cod Guild for inviting me!
