Learn from a Pro (no homework involved)

Every Saturday, we're hosting one fav designer on Zoom for a 60-minute seminar on a topic of interest. Our guest will have the floor for 30 - 45 minutes to talk about the topic and we'll spend the rest of the time in discussion format. The best part of all is that you don't have to leave your home and there's no homework! Our guest will share swatches, designs, photos, and demos with you as well as answer your questions about projects and techniques.

Coming Up!

Kate Atherley: The Good, The Bad & The Pooling. Saturday, August 7 at 11:00 am MDT.

A discussion of the fun and challenges of working with hand-painted yarns. I review different types of hand-painted colorways, and with help of lots of photos, explain how figure out what a yarn will look like knitted up. I’ll provide guidance on how to best apply different types of colorways for the most attractive results. Along the way I tell stories about the best, the worst, and the most surprising skeins of variegated yarns I’ve bought, and I encourage you to show off interesting, challenging and problematic skeins so we can figure them out!

Saturday Seminar Summer Holidays: we're going to take a short summer break and while we'll still have classes, we'll refrain from booking Saturday Seminars from August 14 - 28, 2021.
