I love working directly with knitters to help them create useful, beautiful, constantly-worn garments. It's one of my favorite things in the world.
I teach classes both live and online, and run two extremely popular sweater knitting retreats each year - once in the spring on the California coast, and once in the fall on the Maine coast. (What can I say? I kind of have a thing for oceans.)
I hope to see you some time soon - and until then, happy knitting!
My spring retreats are held on the stunning Monterey Peninsula coast, at Asilomar Conference Grounds. Asilomar started as a YWCA retreat center, and has a strong tradition as a place where women recharge, learn, and grow. With a gathering space designed by Julia Morgan, steps away from the Pacific Ocean, our spring retreats are magic things. Stay tuned for 2017 dates!
Every fall, I run a sweater-focused knitting retreat on the coast of Maine. In a gorgeous setting, with new friends and (maybe) old friends, get inspired by some of the best teachers in the world. This fall's dates are September 22 - 25, 2016. Registration opens Thursday, April 28. I can't wait to see you!
Teaching is one of my favorite things in the world. Check out this page to find out where I'll be, when - and I hope to see you soon!
