Marg Sampson George -April.

Our Next weekend workshop is in April with Marg George, this is a 2 day workshop.
At this stage this weekend is FULL .....BUT if you are interested Please contact me to go onto a waiting list, People do pull out at the last minute.......I do still have 2 places available for Marg's in October...all the info is on the sidebar and the contact form.


We have places still available for Our very first Knitting Workshop with the Lovely Meg Gadsbey from Sydney....This workshop is also available for One Day if you can't make it for both, let me know which day you choose as we have different kits for the Saturday & Sunday.
Names for this workshop need too be in by the end of March so our Indie Dyers can get their yarns ready too be shipped too me for the kits.....

We have a lovely group already so come along, even if you are a beginner don't let that deter you from coming, as long as you can Knit Plain & Purl that's all that's required....
Meg is designing brand new projects for both days all I can tell you is one is a Shawl and maybe the other will be with 2 colours.......

Unfortunately the Judy Newman Workshop for March has been Cancelled due too lack of numbers.
Sorry if you were thinking of attending but names need too be down early too avoid this from happening, our tutors have very tight schedules so I don't like to leave them in the lurch it's not fair on them when they have too travel and get projects organized to bring with them.

Thanks for stopping by
Happy Stitching & Knitting

Update on the Workshops for 2017

Unfortunately there have been new rules put into place at the venue where I hold the workshops which require a Min of 10 People for each day of the Workshop meaning both the Saturday & Sunday, atm I have 3 workshops well under this requirement they are.
Judy Newman in March, Michele Hill in June and Jane McDonald of Be Be Bold in August.
If you have been thinking of attending any of these workshops Please let me know, if the numbers are not there by the end of January 2017 for any of the above these workshops they will be cancelled.
It's not only the min requirement being 10, any number under this doesn't cover the cost for me too put on a Great Workshop for You.
Both Workshops for Marg Sampson George are FULL, but if you were wanting too attend Please put your name down as some Ladies have pulled out and the ladies on the waiting list have been able too now take their place.
I am still taking names for the Meg Gadsbey Knitting Weekend, if you have your name down I'll put an update up early next year once our kits are decided with Meg and Petah from DingDyeworks and Simone of Gumblossom Yarns.

Thanks for stopping by.
