I may be more than a little bit excited right now! The old flight bag is down from storage and dusted off (not many hand-luggage only trips happen with children in tow – it very much harks back to a past life when weekends abroad were more the norm) for I am jetting off this weekend to Switzerland!
This is the view set to greet me on touch down
I will be teaching two classes at the festival and it is not too late to book if you’d like to join me (just click on the link) :
This class is for the adventurous and inquisitive crocheter. What makes a good wearable fabric, what we need for various types of garments and accessories and how to combine hook size, stitch pattern and yarn to create them. All the secrets which make our designs for The Crochet Project so special!
Based on our successful book this class teaches the tips and tricks for making dazzling crochet shawls, whether you have lots of single sock skeins to use up, want to get started on a design from the book or tap my brain for design ideas this is the class for you. The class includes a copy of the book.
I’ll also be smoozing the night away on the first night party cruise where you can meet all the tutors and many of the vendors and enjoy socialising and chatting all things yarn.
With a fab array of vendors it is sure to be a great market place. I am especially looking forward to popping to see Daisy from Devon Sun Yarns who will have samples from The Shawl Project Book One on display (and books to sell).
I’ll also be packing any granny squares I can find around the studio to contribute to the wullecube art installation
I believe there may also be a meet and greet book signing that I’ll be involved in – I’ll be bringing both Shawl books and I also have a shawl design in the special festival shawl book.
Hope to see you there!
