We are thrilled to have Kristina join us this year as our guest designer and instructor! She will be teaching from her latest book, More Modern Top-Down Knitting (November 2013, Stewart, Tabori and Chang).
Kristina has become known as one of the leading designers of top-down knitting by creating beautiful garments based upon the teachings of Barbara Walker's Knitting From the Top. Kristy has taken the mystery out of this seminal work and translated it into modern, approachable designs for today's knitters. On this year's retreat she will lead us through the process of creating our own top-down knitted pieces while tipping our hats to Barbara Walker.
Also this year...
Melora... will lead us in two daily yoga sessions, suitable for all levels of students. Her morning class will flow with a theme woven through the postures helping us understand movement and alignment while enjoying the freedom and radiance generated by an active practice. Her second, not-to-be-missed afternoon class will include deeply restorative poses to relax and de-stress based upon therapeutic yoga postures to help those with injuries, stretches to relieve fatigue from hiking or knitting!
Mary Alice... will treat every one of us to an amazing hour long full body massage. As only a truly experienced and intuitive body worker can, she will relieve you of tension, aches and pains with sensitivity and care.
Spike... our staff writer and marketer who writes our fun blog about her experiences, projects and musing about all things knitting.
This year's crawl home..!
Every year we take the long way 'home' to Portland through some of the best fiber venues Southern Maine has to offer. We have visited farms, shops, designers and spinners along the way. This year will be no different and as plans develop we will keep you updated right here.
