Camp 2014

I'm just finishing the last few details for Camp 2013 (thank you cards should be done today) and then it's time to start on 2014. Our instructors will be Kate Atherley and Sally Melville. We are very excited to have these ladies joining us.

Kate has taught many times in the store for us (as well as at yarn stores and events throughout North America) and anyone who has taken a class will tell you that she is an amazing teacher. She is upbeat and positive. Kate has written two books, has patterns for sale on Ravelry and is teaching classes through Craftsy.

Sally - I don't have enough room to write everything about Sally. She has been a fixture in the knitting community in North America for many years. Sally is one of the founding members of the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters' Guild. She has taught for me at different events over the years and is one of the most professional teachers you will ever meet. Sally has written many knitting books (both technique and for garments) including The Knitting Experience - The Knit Stitch, The Purl Stitch and Colour. Three of the best knitting books you will find on the market.

One thing that is very important when we choose instructors is that they are outgoing and fun. Classes are important but if they can't handle the game on Thursday night then we don't invite them. If you haven't been to Camp this might not make sense to you but Campers will totally understand.
