The third Knit For Fun Retreat in Edmonton, Canada, is now open for registration!
Once again we’ll partner with River City Yarns in Edmonton, and because we like it so much, we’ll return to the DoubleTree by Hilton, in West Edmonton.
Our Rock Star teachers are Olga Buraya-Kefelian, Xandy Peters, and Canada’s own Shirley A Scott.
Olga will teach the following three-hour classes:
- 3-Dimensional Knitwear
- Brioche and Beyond
- Novelty Cables
Olga’s optional full-day (6 hour) class is 3-Dimensional Knitwear
Zandy will teach the following three-hour classes:
- Intro to Stacked Stitches
- Color Theory for Fiber Artists
- Center-Out Knitting
Zandy’s optional full-day (6 hour) class is Fox Paws Workshop
Shirley will teach the following three-hour classes:
- Wreckhouse Wristers
- Glove Knitting for Newbies
- Beaded Eyelet Wristers
Shirley’s optional full-day (6 hour) class is Newfoundland Mittens in a Day
Registration includes three 3-hour classes (one class with each instructor) during four class periods: Friday morning, Friday afternoon, Saturday morning, and Saturday afternoon. You will be given one free period with regular registration.
In addition to three 3-hour classes, you’ll have the opportunity to sign up for one-on-one sessions of 20 minutes each with the Knit Doctor (that’s me, Ann Budd) on a first-come, first-serve basis. I’ll help you with anything that ails your knitting, from taking measurements and choosing yarn to finding your place in a piece gone wrong and fixing mistakes.
For an additional fee, you can sign up for an optional full-day class with one of the teachers opening day (Thursday, August 27). If space is available, you’ll also have the opportunity to register for a fourth class in lieu of a free period.
Take time for yourself this year and join us for three (or four) days of learning, knitting, shopping, and enjoying the company of knitting enthusiasts from around the world! Gifts and prizes may be included…
