i had a super fun time in San Francisco, filming 3 new Creativebug workshops that i can’t wait to unveil! for now they’re under wraps, but if you’re eager to move forward in the realm of designing and drafting your own custom sewing patterns, i suggest you brush up on my previous workalong class, Pattern Drafting, to be up to speed for the new material.
in the meantime, i’ve got some local and semi-local workshops happening over the next month, and i wanted to make sure you knew about them:
this weekend, April 17-19 is the 5th annual Yarn Cupboard Fiber Arts Retreat and Market in Syracuse, NY. unlike many retreats, this one allows people to come just for a class or two and to take in the market, so if you live within driving distance, you might want to come check it out! this year’s teachers include Norah Gaughan, Amy King of Spunky Eclectic, Lori Versace, Jill Draper, Emily Giraudin, Beth Coye, Jennifer VanValcar of Holiday Yarns, Christine Huppman of Knit Swirl, and Lisa Merian of Spinner’s Hill. I’m teaching 3 classes: Crochet on the Edge, Gaga for Grannies, and Crochet Color Play.
next weekend, 2 local classes at my two favorite local shops:
saturday April 25 — Block Printing and Stenciling for Textiles at Sew Woodstock
sunday April 26 — Gaga for Grannies at White Barn Farm
and the following weekend, May 2-3, i’ll be down in NYC, hanging out at my old haunt Brooklyn General Store to teach Patternmaking Simplified on Saturday and Custom Fit Leggings on Sunday.
gosh, i sure do get around. i hope to see you somewhere!
