Fiberside Chat

On April 25, 2021, I will be presenting a lecture on 19th-century traditional knitting, highlighting techniques that have been forgotten that are useful even today in our modern knitting.  Knitting from England, Scotland, Demark, Norway, Sweden, and more will be shown in slides.  I will also demonstrate how to create the Channel Island Cast-on.  There […]

A NEW Class: Baltic Two-Color Cast-Ons

I’ll be offering this class in several venues, such as Stitches Expo April (9-11).  I like longer workshops, one- and two-day affairs, even 5 days!  But I see a trend towards little bites of info for knitters, 2-hour and 3-hour classes.  So I have put together a new class that is 2 hours long, to […]

This fresh, new year has so much possibility.  I am committing to learning something new each month. And if you might like to do the same, consider taking a virtual class in the comfort of your own home. I am teaching virtually more than ever and my calendar is filling up. Check it out!
