We still have some room at the Carolinas Machine Knitters Guild Seminar in Raleigh NC.
There will be a dinner with the demonstrators. The cost should be about $20-22 per person and includes salad, entree and desert. Lunch will be included each day.
We are not requiring membership in the Guild for attendees.
The Demonstrators are Diana Berns, Kathryn Doubrley and Cindy Schmatz.
Kathryn's husband will be doing machine repairs if notified before the seminar.
Diana Berns owns a needlework shop in Watertown, SD and has been machine knitting for many years. She writes patterns many with the plus size knitter in mind and has demonstrated at many seminars.
Cindy Schmatz runs Cindy's Knitting Room in Princeton, MN and sells Tamm yarns. She specializes in teaching techniques on the machine and has a monthly club meeting. www.cindysknittingroom.com
Kathryn Doubrley is the Answer Lady. She has many patterns on her website www.theanswerlady.com and demonstrates at various seminars. She also writes patterns for Country of Maine News and Views magazine.
Small classes, intimate environment.
Specific vendors will be posted laterAll of the demonstrators will try to show some things for beginners and other skills or inspirations for the more experienced knitters. We believe our classes will be small enough so the attendees can ask questions of the instructors and get the answers right there in class. We are fairly informal, not tied to our seats, and our classes are only 1 hour long. We will have 30 minute breaks between classes to visit, ask others knitting questions, visit the rest room (can you tell I am a former elementary school teacher??), or shop the patterns, etc. brought by the demonstrators and the vendors.
Many of our demonstrators will be bringing sample garments and various patterns/books/cd's to sell.
We will also have vendors to sell us sponge bars and various machine knitting items, maybe even yarn. We are still contacting people about this.
