Workshop Details:

April 13 from 8:00 - 10:00 pm | “So You Knit A Pandemic” | SPACES AVAILABLE!

Come to our evening talk with Stephanie Pearl McPhee. Bring your project, settle in and get to know your fellow travellers. Relax. (There may be a cash bar). Stephanie will entertain us with her talk, “So You Knit a Pandemic”. Stephanie’s talks are entertaining and fun for everyone, so all are invited to purchase a ticket. (Yes, your travel companions will love this talk too!) 

April 14 from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm | Alternate Colourwork | FULL

It's so popular, we're offering a second session (see April 15 below): this brand-new class by Stephanie is an exploration of knitting with colour, without doing any stranded colourwork! We’ll have some fun with stripes, learn about jogless jogs, and play with slipped stitches and manipulated stitches to create fancy patterns that only use one colour per row. We’ll investigate mosaic knitting, and even look at braids. We’ll even talk a little about how to choose colours that go together, and how you tell if they do. Supply list provided at registration.

April 14 from 2:00 - 5:00 pm | Warm Hands | FULL

Mittens are an infinitely interesting project for knitters, no matter their level. Whether you’d like to make warm mittens for shovelling, dress mittens for your best coat, fingerless mitts for fall days or an everyday pair for a child, you can make mittens without a pattern. We’ll look at three thumbs, options for tops and all the structures I can think of, and you’ll leave with a mitten started (and maybe finished) and a pattern that’s just what you want it to be. A supply list will be provided at registration.

April 15 from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm | Knit Smart | SPACES AVAILABLE!

This lecture style class (that means mostly talking, like at University) deals with best practices in knitting, and talks about how to (usually) prevent knitting mistakes and (mostly) fix them. Out of the myriad techniques, ideas, yarns, patterns and tools available to knitters, how can you be sure that the ones you choose will give you the results you want? This class looks at how to predict how knitting is going to work, very clever ways to solve knitting problems, and how to streamline knitting so that you’re doing less work, and creating better stuff. This class is useful to knitters at all levels, and is Stephanie's very favourite one to teach.
