Beth... has been passionately teaching historic knitting workshops around the world for over 25 years. In her travels she loves to prowl the archives of museums looking for old knitted bits of inspiration. All Beth's studies of past cultures inform her patterns and classes which have become known for the tiny sampler sweater projects teaching ancient techniques within the context of a garment.
Beth's pursuit of historic knitting techniques led to the book Knitting Ganseys which has been deemed a classic. This was followed by a set of three DVDs: Knitting Ganseys with Beth Brown-Reinsel, Color Stranded Knitting Techniques, and Sanquhar Gloves and a Craftsy class on Swedish Twined Knitting.
We look forward to hearing all about Beth's adventures in the knitting world and her life in the Vermont hills. In the meantime, grab a cup of tea and do a little exploring of your own. Beth's blog, eNewsletter and Knitting Traditions website are packed with beautiful images, patterns and techniques. Don't forget to go through your knitting magazine library to find her many articles in Threads, Cast On, Interweave Knits, Knitting Traditions, Piecework, Shuttle, Spindle, and Dye Pot, Vogue Knitting, and Knitters. This should keep you entertained until we meet her in person!
Also this year...
Holly Hofman... our beloved yoga instructor returns! Once again we look forward to Holly's knowledgeable and thorough approach to her yoga practice and how she presents it with us. If you have never practiced yoga or are an experienced yogi you will enjoy and learn from Holly's experienced instruction.
This year's day trip...
Every year we take a little ride out into the Vermont countryside to find interesting fiber haunts. We've been on extensive yarn crawls, had mini-workshops at local shops, toured mills, held lambs. This year's exploration is a departure from the norm. In addition to visiting one of our *favorite* yarn shops, Northern Nights in Norwich, VT, we will be attending a special baking class at the King Arthur Flour Cooking School!
