Join Me at the Castle

I am happy to announce that I’ve been selected to teach at Knit East 2013, the Atlantic Fibre Fest sponsored by Cricket Cove this fall (check out their Ravelry group: KnitEast).

This festival includes “classes, marketplace, demos, yoga for knitters, spinning 101, contests, and everything in between” September 27, 28, and 29, 2013. The event takes place at the historic Algonquin Resort, a tudor-style castle (!) that overlooks Passamaquoddy Bay in St Andrews By-the-Sea, New Brunswick, Canada. I don’t make it to the East Coast to teach very often and I’ve haven’t taught in Canada before — and I’ve certainly never stayed in a castle — so I’m pretty excited about this trip.

And the teacher line-up is pretty impressive, too, including Susan B. Anderson, Deb Barnhill, Bristol Ivy, Mary Jane Mucklestone, and the Yarn Harlot herself — Stephanie Pearl McPhee! I don’t know what pearls they will be teaching, but I can tell you that I’ll teach Sweaters from the Top Down (gotta promote The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters, doncha know), Cast-On Techniques, and Introduction to Sweater Design.
If you can fit it into your schedule and budget, I’d love to meet you there!
