Sandy is working on GumDrop from Annie @ JumperCablesKnitting in the new Shibui Maai.
Angel is knitting “Neato” in Zealana Rimu – such a luxurious knit.
Michelle is knitting Snello out of Madelinetosh HOME & Shiui Maai
Jane Slicer-Smith is teaching at Stitches and then coming to Amazing Threads, October 18 & 19. Her 2014 designs are fabulous and I can’t wait to get my hands on one of her new patterns and some great Merino 6 or 8 from Trendsetter. Barry is making the yarns available to support Jane’s new designs at the shop that weekend and this is your opportunity to meet Jane and hear her design tips and tricks. I know it’s MEA weekend but Jane has not been here in years and she is FABULOUS and OH SO FUN to listen to, too. I already ordered the yarn to knit her fabulous COAT.
I am changing the registration costs to encourage you to spend the entire day with Jane. Jane comes to the US only once every couple of years.
1 class = $65 - Register for 2 classes in 1 day for $100 – That’s $50 per class and includes instruction, breaks, and lunch.
Join Jane for 2 texture knitting classes on Saturday (Cables & Zig Zags, Bobbles & Bells), Mitres and Simple Intarsia Sunday. Jane will also be available for consultations.Download the PDF here! The more classes you attend the better. Take 1 @ $65, 2 on one day @$100 FOR 2; 3 @ $175 & 4 @ $200. Call the shop to register.
