Here's another new opportunity for you to take a class with me. On Saturday May 1st, I'll be teaching at Marji's Yarncrafts in Granby, CT. Marji sponsors the "Ewephoric Weekend" usually every spring and I've been lucky to be invited to teach.
The two classes are:
Creative Embroidery on Knits
Fair Isle Knitting with Optional Steeking
You can download the class brochure here on Marji's website. FYI, I have just decided TODAY to add the steeking component to the Fair Isle class so you won't see it listed on the brochure. I'll be bringing my sewing machine and help you through the fear of the steek, if you choose. If you don't want to do the steek, you can choose to just learn Fair Isle knitting.
If you are wondering where Granby is, it's very close to Bradley Airport which is just outside of Hartford. It is really easy to get to and the classes are being given in a lovely setting, perfect for a day of knitting, learning and sharing. The knitting entertainment after the Saturday lunch is always fabulous too! Head on over to Marji's website and check it out. This is one of those wonderful small venues where you can really enjoy yourself and meet many new knitting friends.

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.
