Knitters Corner

An Urban Cadre is my term for a workshop retreat based in an urban center. Knitters fly in, meet at the designated hotel where we knit, eat, yarn forage, enjoy the company of like-minded knitters and explore something new in the workshop hours. My very first of these will be this July at Port O'Stitches, a workshop retreat based right here in my own hometown featuring Ilga Leja and myself. A breath of salt air, lovely boutiques, an optional drive to the south shore to visit a yarn shop plus all the Fleece Artist yarns you can handle spells the perfect way to spend a few days in July.

And then, if the Atlantic coast doesn't work for you, how about joining me on the Pacific side? San Francisco is one of my favorite North American urban centers with notoriously lovely yarn stores. Not only will we be staying at the funky little boutique hotel, the Triton near Union Square, but one of our workshop days will be at the Art Fibers, a treasure trove of textured and exotic yarns perfect for my style of knitting.
