Registration For North Country Fiber Fair 2016 Is Open!!

Hi, guys! This week I'm pleased to announce that the booklets have been distributed and class registration has opened online for the North Country Fiber Fair 2016 and...

I'll be teaching 2 classes this year!!

Join me on Friday, September 16th at 5 PM to learn the most addictive blanket pattern you've ever seen!
Perfectly Portable Crochet
Come learn some tips and tricks to making your own super portable Busy Bee Crochet Throw! This pattern is made of granny square-esque hexagons that are all seamed together in a way that provides a textural and visual contrast. The hexagon pattern is very easy to memorize so all you need to have with you is your yarn and a crochet hook (like sock knitting for crochet!). In class you will learn how to make the hexagons, how to read a crochet chart, how to adjust the pattern so that you can use stash (or scrap) yarn, and how to connect the hexagons. Included are a copy of the pattern to use in class as well as a Ravelry code for the digital version. Join us in learning how to make this very addictive and perfectly portable crochet project!

Winter is coming, prepare for sub-zero temps with squishy, warm Brioche Knitwear! Learn this fun technique with me on Sunday, September 18th at 12:30 PM.
 Basic Brioche Knitting
Have you been drooling over all the beautiful Brioche designs that have been showing up all over this past year but don't think that you could ever knit something that complicated? Think again! The goal in this workshop is to show you just how easy this fun technique really is and to get you comfortable in your knitting. In this 3-hour class students will learn the German Twisted Cast-on (also known as the Old Norwegian Cast-on), Basic Brioche Rib Stitch, how to knit Brioche using 1 or 2 colors, how to bind-off and (most importantly) how to read their knitting. Students will be provided with a free pattern for a Giant Color Shift Brioche Scarf, but in class we will be making a smaller sample piece so that all the techniques will be covered in the time allotted. By the end of class, students will have the necessary skills to complete their scarf on their own and venture into the wonderful, squishy world of Brioche Knitwear!

If you've never gone to NCFF, you are missing out. This is one of my all-time favorite fiber events because it's very relaxed and well-organized. 2016 will be the 3rd year that I've attended and the 2nd year that I will be teaching classes. There is a wonderful marketplace that isn't overwhelmingly large, but isn't tiny either. The vendors are all great people that you can chat with and get to know either while they are running their shops or in the spinning circle after the market closes. I set aside funds all year so that I can have a blast during this weekend and last year purchased my spinning wheel (Murderbot 10,000) after taking a beginning spinning class on the first night of NCFF 2015.

Murderbot, Katie, our friend Sara and myself will be attending NCFF all weekend (September 16 - 18, 2016) and are planning on taking a few classes. I'm really looking forward to some great spinning and knitting classes from the featured teachers for this year: Kate Larson (spinning) and Margaret Radcliffe (knitting) and I hope to see you all there!

Have a great week of fiber crafting!
Shaina  ^_^
