Endless Edgings

August 8th & 9th 2015

Weekend Lace Knitting Workshop at MOONRISE

Orefield, PA

This class will teach you how an edging is put together.  It is a "flip" book, (like the monster-put-together books we had as kids), that charts a selection of parts.  You pick a heading, band, middle, and edge to design your own unique edging.  All are charted in Lace Shorthand  - the possibilities are endless.  We will also work on translating edgings into Lace Shorthand.  Thread and glass provided for a vase or candle holder (the class project).

A weekend of fun & learning - - good knitting, good food and good friends! This workshop will be held over the weekend at my home and business in Orefield, PA - conveniently located 40 minutes north of Philadelphia (cats in residence). The class room is comfortable and beautifully furnished, the setting is peaceful, rural Pennsylvania.

The cost is $100. Materials for class work will be provided. Also included: morning snacks and wonderful gourmet lunches done by Ebby.

Queen Anne's Lace

A Niebling Explored, Explained and Recharted

August 22nd & 23rd 2015

Weekend Lace Knitting Workshop at MOONRISE

Orefield, PA

Many consider a Niebling to be the ultimate knitting accomplishment. This class will alternate charting and knitting of one of his patterns. There will be cheat sheets in the booklet so you can check your work when you get home. Along the way we will see how to spot errors and simplify the chart. Lace Shorthand makes this a possibility for any intermediate knitter.

There will be yarn for class work. If you want to start the shawl in class you will need to bring or buy lace weight yarn.  (I used 150g of MoonNight).  By recharting you do all the hard work with a pencil and the knitting is a joy! As a bonus I will show you a started shawl called, Beach Roses, that uses a Niebling center that could be a doily. If we have time you could practice a bit with this chart, (also included in the cheat-sheets).

MOONTIDE Knitting Retreat 2016

 June 4-11, 2016  at Surfside in Wellfleet, Cape Cod

Registration is OPEN!

Join us for a fabulous week spent with fellow knitters in beautiful, serene Wellfleet, Cape Cod. Focus on your knitting and enjoy a lovely beach vacation at the same time. Classroom time is mixed with free time for vacation activities and show/share/knit in the evenings. We stay right by the ocean, in a group of cottages which back up to the National Seashore, the same ones we've been enjoying for years.

 

The pattern for the retreat project will be exclusively available only to the retreat attendees and is a strictly kept secret until the first day of the retreat!  You'll advance both your technical skills and your ability to translate your creativity into a knittable piece. There will be approximately 24 hours of instruction at our main cabin which has a large, comfortable classroom. We will have classes each morning, Sunday through Friday in the class cabin.  Afternoons are free for vacation fun. Most evenings include a get-together of some sort. Total number of students is limited to 22.

 

CABINS We rent cabins in Surfside Cottages www.surfsidecottages.com (not roughing it, these are comfortable small houses). The cabins are shared, usually with 3 people per cabin, you will have your own bedroom but will be sharing a bathroom. I will do my best to place you as you instruct on a first-come-first-served basis.  Cabin assignments are usually finalized in November with the first non-refundable deposits.  We share housekeeping, food shopping, and cooking with cabin mates.  All cabins have one bath, a fully equipped kitchen, heat, clock radios, telephone, and blankets. Most cabins have two bedrooms with a queen bed and one with two twin beds. Most cabins require the ability to navigate stairs, a few have no stairs. Most also have an outdoor shower and many have limited wifi.  You will need to bring: sheets and towels, food (stores are expensive in the village and the nearest supermarket is ˝ hour away), perhaps a small fan, lawn chair or bike if desired. All indoor spaces in Wellfleet are non-smoking by law.

 

THE TOWN Wellfleet has it all when it comes to water—ocean (Surfside is right on the ocean), kettle ponds and the bay. The National Seashore Park takes up 1/3 of the town and is free from development. Sand roads throughout offer endless nature walks. The paved bike trail winds through on the old railroad bed. The village itself is known as a gallery town. There is a marvelous flea market on Sat & Sun and several antique stores. Provincetown is 20 minutes away for serious arty shopping and other cultural activities including whale watching.

   

 

COPYRIGHT I do not copyright my class handouts other than the project book.  I want you to share anything taught or discussed in class.

 

GETTING THERE Wellfleet is 2.5 hours from Boston airport and about the same from Providence RI. Figure about 1 hour after you cross the canal.  Arrival time is Sat in the afternoon.  Departure is Sat in the morning.

 

COST: Lodging, instruction, pattern and yarn is $1,000.   If you wish to make your own lodging arrangements; instruction, pattern and yarn alone is $600.
