Workshop Alert!

I will be speaking at The Westchester Knitting Guild meeting, on September 22nd, 2008 at 7pm. The guild meets at the Chappaqua library. If you are interested and you're not a member, you can come as a guest and maybe join while you're there! I will be discussing lace traditions across both time (a few centuries) and space (a few countries.) I will bring charts to share. You can knit while I chat. The small pink and white sampler below is what we'll use, so bring needles and smooth, skinny yarn. I will also be teaching a lace workshop at Knitting Nation, in Nyack, New York, in October. This workshop will use a set of my special charts to explore a variety of lace techniques. The picture below and the pink and green swatches above will be part of the plan. Read more about it at the Knitting Nation website. I'll post a reminder and more details in October, but consider holding a spot for yourself now if you are interested. The workshop is two Sunday afternoons, but you can join for either or both Sundays, and you can choose to work on my special swatches or one of two projects you can knit using the same charts.
I have some other crazy stuff to share, but I deleted the pictures by accident so it will have to wait...until then, knit on!


  1. Sigh. I wish I could be there. I grew up in Westchester. Have fun!

  2. Looks like fun, wish I lived closer. :)

  3. Wish I lived closer. Sounds like fun.

  4. hi,
    how can i buy your specials charts with lace (white samplers...)?
    i'm french and i can't participate to the workshop.
    can you help me please ?

  5. Neferkiki,
    You didn't leave me an email address, so I am replying here. The workshop charts (and swatches) are just my teaching material and not otherwise available. Are you asking about the small samplers in the picture with this post, or are you asking about another pattern?

  6. badcat,
    yes, i'm asking about the white samplers and others lace mini shawls in pink.
    i can't buy them ?

  7. Christine,
    No. The two pictures on this post are just small samples and are not shawls. I have no plans to make the charts available outside my classes, but they might become larger designs which will be available in the future. Please leave me an email address if you have more questions.

  8. Badcat,
    i send you a mail on yahoo group about samplers.

  9. I love your lace samples. Wish I could attend your workshop but it is a little far from Vancouver area BC, Canada. I wish you every success with it.
