Upcoming Classes

It's been a busy, busy year so far and the next couple of months will be no exception. 

Here are the classes I've got coming up.

First of all will be Three Sisters Folk Art School in Chillicothe, IL.  The classes during the weekend of April 15-17 will include a class on Knitting Lace.  This is going to be such a luxury to have the whole weekend to spend on knitting lace.  Classes will start Friday evening, go all day Saturday and to mid-day on Sunday.  All lace, all the time, baby.  There will be a number of other classes going on, too, so get a group and hit all of them!

Class List
Lace Knitting
Needle Sculpting an Art Doll
Pinhole Photography
Sewing and a Little More
Introduction to Lathe Work
Fine Metal Clay & Jewelry Making Techniques
Traditional Rug Hooking

In May, a class on Spinning for Lace has just been confirmed for the Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival.  They haven't posted the workshops yet but info will go up next week.  Keep an eye on the link above for registration to open.  By the way, there are going to be a boatload of vendors there with all things fiber.  Definitely worth a trip to Lexington, KY.  The other cool thing is that the Festival is tied to the Bluegrass Classic Stockdog Trial.  I had a ball there last year.  Here's the scoop on the class:
