It’s the big Yarnporium announcement you’ve been waiting for! Workshops! We are SO excited about the roster of teachers that we’ve got lined up for you at this year’s Yarnporium. And quite an international roster too! We’ve got teachers from the UK (of course!), Scotland, Ireland, France, Finland, Canada and the USA too. Here’s a run down of who’s coming:

England: Renée Callahan, Jane Lithgow, Nathan Taylor

Scotland: Karie Westermann 

Ireland: Carol Feller 

France: Julie Dubreux (aka Julie Knits in Paris)

Finland: Jonna Hietala and Sini Ellen from Laine Magazine

Canada: Kate Atherley

USA: Courtney Kelley and Kate Osborne from Kelbourne Woolens

Tickets for the workshops will go on sale on June 1st. You can find all the class details as well as bios about all of our teachers on our website.

What we’re working on:

Allison is now on sleeve island for her Mon Manet by Jonna Hietala (and actually finished it since we recorded the episode), in La Bien Aimee Merino Aran in Grellow and as always happens at about this point in any one of her projects is now thinking about what she wants to knit next.

Rachel has finished all the pieces for the Lilly baby sweater by Justine Turner (machine knit) and now just has to put the thing together and knit the edging! She finished a long standing UFO – the Teign Wrap by Linda Lencovic in 4 indigo dyed colours of Baskerville. And she’s still going on the sleeves for Marginalia (slowly but surely).

The Making of a Magazine:

If you’re a knitter and you don’t know Laine Magazine (or Laine as we used to call it) then we think you’re really missing out. Since launching just over a year ago they’ve experienced an explosion of growth, going from naught to 50,000 copies in that short period of time.

We sat down at EYF to chat with editors Jonna and Sini about how the magazine came to be. 

Wrap up:
