Class Materials: A variety of circular and double points in sized 1 – 3 (for Shetland style fingering weight) or 5 – 7 (for Highland worsted weight), stitch markers, pen and pencil.

We were very disappointed to have to cancel all of our workshops in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We are hopeful that in 2021 we can begin the road back to our normal series. To that end this year, we are offering fewer work- shops, with fewer students per workshop and limiting the number of people who can stay in our Boarding House. We will be strictly observing all Covid protocols to ensure your safety and the safety of our teachers and staff. We don’t know at this point if masks will still be required, but if they are, we will have plenty of masks available. There will also be lots of hand sanitizer and disinfec- tant sprays. We are hopeful that our classes will take place, and we look forward to seeing you. Stay safe!
