I will be teaching my Introduction to Lace Knitting on Sunday at the Lehigh Valley Fiber Fest for only $5!  

This class is an introduction to the major types of knitted lace. You will make a small sampler useful as a bookmark. It could be considered  a lecture class but I’m hoping you will knit along. You may bring any smooth yarn—fingering or sport, and size 2 or 3 needles. (a pair of short ones is perfect). But yarn and needles will be available for your use at no charge. Come and see how easy it is to knit lace!

Pre-registration with the LV Fiber Fest site is required: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0f4bafac2ba0fc1-kinds

This is a new original design inspired by the John Denver's Annie's Song.  While you can knit it as a shawl in lace weight yarn, it would make a lovely and thoughtful gift for a man or a woman as a lap robe in fingering weight,  or it can be a window hanging in cotton.  It is done in the In-Out, Circle Square construction. It starts with a circle and then the increases are all placed in the corners to make a final square shape. In the workshop I'll get you started and we'll cover some of the trickier stitches and construction concepts.
 
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 Alburtis, PA - conveniently located 40 minutes north of Philadelphia. The class room is comfortable and beautifully furnished, the setting is peaceful, small town Pennsylvania.  Out of towners can make this workshop a family or romantic get-away with a stay at nearby Bear Creek Mountain Resort.
 
The cost is $120 and includes spiral bound pattern book, class yarn and yarn to complete the window hanging. Also included: morning snacks and lunch.  If you would like to start a shawl or lap robe you can bring your own yarn or buy it from me at 25% off retail. I’m using Silky Merino from Malabrigo for my lap robe, but keep only a few colors in stock so let me know at least 2 weeks in advance if you would like me to stock a particular color for you.

I don’t know about you, but my lampshades have seen better days. Bring an old shade and explore the possibilities for refreshing it. You could knit a cover for you existing shade, make a new one attached to the frame, or use your old one as a mold for a stiffened one. We will be working with cotton thread. I have a selection of beads if you want to add some sparkle.

Everything except the frame is provided.

MOONTIDE Lace Knitting on Cape Cod
Week-Long Retreat
June 1-8, 2019
Wellfleet, MA
REGISTRATION OPEN! Send your refundable deposit of $100 to save your spot today!
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.  Lodging options include 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 class house 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 18.

CLASSROOM: The classroom is in a private home with a large first floor living room at 110 Commercial Street, Wellfleet, MA.  There's a variety of seating options for students.  The rest room and refreshments are provided on the first floor as well.
 
LODGING: We recommend cabins in Surfside Cottages www.surfsidecottages.com (not roughing it, these are comfortable small houses). You can share these cabins comfortably if you would like, usually with 3 people per cabin. All cabins have one bath, a fully equipped kitchen, heat, clock radios, telephone, free wifi with internet access and blankets. Most cabins have two bedrooms with a queen bed and one with two twin beds. Most cabins require the ability to navigate 2-3 stair steps, a few have no stairs at all. Most also have an outdoor shower.  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: All instruction, pattern and yarn is $700.   
 
Payment Schedule is as follows:
$100 Registration deposit to reserve your spot (refundable if you change your mind by November 1st!)
$300 First payment due by November 1st (not refundable)
$300 Final balance due by April 1st (not refundable)
