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.

Getting Stitched Classes at the Farm - Now Open!
I'm really happy to say that I have gotten my act together. I have posted the 5 classes that I will be running this summer over on my website. They are all based on my love of color and textiles and creativity. Here's the schedule:
July 12, 2014 - Mother and Child Beginning Embroidery
July 19, 2014 - Crewel Embroidery
August 2, 2014 - Embroidery on Knits - this is what I am most known for!
August 9, 2014 - Paint Your Own Lampshade
August 16, 2014 - Simple Fabric Printing
As you can see, they are not all knitting related. This is a big gamble on my part because most of my followers and readers are knitters. I am hoping some of you will take this opportunity to learn a new craft that you can use to decorate your home or your wardrobe in new ways.
Pop on over to my website for further information and to sign up. I'll be highlighting the projects we will be making over the next few weeks here on the blog.
Please help me spread the word by sharing the class listings with your friends. If you have any questions, send them to kristinnicholas AT gmail DOT com. Bring a friend or come by yourself - it is such a fun time and everyone is always friendly.
