I’m teaching next spring in New Hampshire, at Squam Arts Workshops. Most of you will already know about this most fabulous of knitting retreats. It is one of my favorites because of so many things, but my favorite thing of all is the location. An old school New England camp. Guests stay in charming, old fashioned cottages, each with a screen door that slams, a rock fireplace and it’s own dock on Squam Lake.
To. Die. For.
The classes next spring are just so amazing. I honestly want to sign up for each one, only I can’t because I’m teaching. What am I teaching? A special Fair Isle Squam Style class…we will have so much fun – exploring Squam and forming ideas inspired by this wondrous place. We’ll bring it all into our knitting, making our own special fair isle cuff, to capture our experience. A fair isle totem!
My companion knitting teachers are favorite friends, my fellow Grand Shetland Adventuress Gudrun Johnston, west coast friend Andrea Rangel – such a versatile talent that lady, and I’m sure you all know Kate Atherley the tech-wizard of Knitty.com.
Besides knitting there will be weaving, dressmaking, woodworking, rug hooking, bookmaking, Japanese embroidery, drawing, photography, poetry you name it!
Admire the list of teachers below and follow the links to their websites…or really…Just go to the Squam Workshops website to get a feel for the wonder of the event, and then to the specific Squam Spring 2016 for all the class descriptions, schedule etc.
Note especially that Kristine Vejar of The Modern Natural Dyer fame is teaching. WOW. Be sure to post a comment on my last post for a chance to win a copy of the book and a kit to go along with it!
