I’m thrilled to be a part of Knit Stars 3.0!!!

What is Knit Stars 3.0? It’s an online conference with instruction taught through high-quality HD video lessons. You’ll learn from 12 of the most sought-after designers, instructors, and indie dyers, and get a peek inside their private work spaces. (Including me! You’ll see my Portland Maine studio!) The workshops are released one-by-one during the summit – and once a workshop is released, you own it forever. Watch it again and again!Every workshop is fully transcribed, so you can download the PDF to have next to you while you watch the lessons.

The Knit Stars 3.0  Summit, runs from November 26  – December 14.  You don’t need to travel or be anywhere except the comfort of your home! Hope you join in the fun!  Follow this link for more information and to sign up:
