These two designers continually delight us with their well crafted patterns and inspiring blog posts. We are thrilled that they are interested in sharing some of their creative insights with our intimate group of crafters this fall.
This year’s workshop will be held in Putney, Vermont from Friday, November 6th to Sunday, November 8th, 2015.
Thea will impress us with her design process where she will take us from yarn thoughts to motifs to actually plotting ideas for a basic design and they begin to design their own cowls. The other is “playing with cables” where we look at things we can do with cables – pair them together, play them off of one another, change the size, add/change texture, add/change lace, make a panel, read and create a chart, etc.
Ellen will be sharing her creative ways for sculpting a mitten thumb with her Fried Chicken Mittens, working two at a time using magic loop and possibly a small sewing project ??
The Spinnery’s weekends feature great food, lively companionship and lots of yarny goodness. A cost of $390.00 per person includes all workshops and meals (Friday Dinner, Saturday Continental Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner and Sunday Continental Breakfast).
You can find the registration form here. Students are responsible for their own lodging arrangements and we have a handful of local suggestions listed on the registration form.
AND, we have a contest to announce! We will be offering two lucky winners a 50% discount on their registration fee. In order to be eligible to win you must be registered for the retreat and be an active participant in either (or both) of the Spinnery’s two Ravelry groups.
How can you do that? Simply join the Green Mountain Spinnery’s Weekend Group or the Friends of Green Mountain Spinnery and share your projects and thoughts. Let us know what you’re working on, what you are thinking about working on next or what you’d like to learn from a knitting retreat in the future.
