Gypsy Enchantment

Weekend Lace Knitting Workshop at MOONRISE

Orefield, PA

August 16th & 17th 2014

Help with “Gypsy Enchantment” A few years ago Just Our Yarn commissioned me to design a shawl for them using their wonderful cashmere yarn. I did so and they own the copyright. Several people have asked me to help them with this pattern. So, to take this class you must first buy the pattern from info@JustOurYarn.com. Yarn is up to you. You could use any lace weight of your choosing. You will need about 2100 yards. The cashmere I mentioned is beautiful, but must be bought at one of their shows. Maybe you have something special in your stash. If you want to buy yarn from me, perhaps the Malabrigo or wool/silk from Jaggerspun, I offer 50% off. (Ask for availability of color and yarn desired when you register). There is always class yarn for those that want to practice the stitches during the workshop.

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 and afternoon snacks and wonderful gourmet lunches done by Ebby.

Charting a Niebling Pattern

Weekend Lace Knitting Workshop at MOONRISE

Orefield, PA

July 26th & 27th 2014

This is for the adventurous knitter who wants to learn how to understand and knit the Art Knitting Patterns designed by Herbert Niebling. We will rechart a pattern that I have adapted for my “Queen Anne’s Lace” shawl. We will chart and knit alternately. I will show you how to understand the German charts, find errors, and then rechart in a easy to knit form. Learn to do the hard work with a pencil and then enjoy the knitting! Class yarn provided as well as the forms for the charting. If you want to start the shawl, you will need to bring or buy yarn for it. The shawl has an original border to enlarge it. After this workshop you will be able to proceed confidently with the German designs.

MOONTIDE Knitting Retreat 2015

Late May - Early June  at Surfside in Wellfleet, Cape Cod

Registration opens to the public in the August of 2014 - email if interested and you will receive notificaiton.

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.

 

Our topic for 2015 will be announced in the Summer of 2014. 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.  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). 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 3 bedrooms with queen or full beds and one with two twin beds. Most cabins require the ability to navigate stairs, a few have no stairs. You will need to bring: sheets and towels, food (stores are expensive in the village and the nearest supermarket is ½ 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 Classes (approximately 24 hours) are $500. The lodging is $500.  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.  If you wish to stay elsewhere there is a $100 classroom fee and you must still make the $100 deposit to reserve. 

 

RESERVATIONS To reserve your spot e-mail me (MOONRISELaceKnitting@rcn.com) with the following information and follow with your deposit (snail mail or I can send you a paypal invoice).  Please make a copy for your information. A letter will go out confirming your registration and with more detailed information. Registration requires a $100 deposit, with an additional $400 (or the amount necessary to bring total deposit to $500) due prior to November 30th, and any remaining balance is due prior to April 18th.  Registration is OPEN to all customers on September 2nd.  We typically open the public registration with a waiting list, so please don't delay to get at the top of that list.

 

I need to know:  Name, Address, E-mail, Phone number, if there are other students you are hoping to share a cabin with and any special considerations or requests.

 

E-mail questions or concerns. If you do not get a response it means my computer is giving me trouble. Call (484) 350-3022.
