Hire me!

by Shannon on June 14, 2014

I’m looking to book additional teaching gigs this summer and this fall and have openings in my schedule that can save you money, dear yarn stores. Here’s the deal. I am exhibiting at the American Library Association show at the end of the month (come see me in booth 1348, librarian friends!) in Vegas. I have time on the 25th and 26th, and on July first. I’m willing to drive outside Vegas (Los Angeles? San Diego? Points in between?)

In July I’ll be in NYC for family stuff. Dates when I have them, but definitely after the 9th (and sometime before the 19th of August). Tamas’ cousin is coming from Hungary, and we’ve promised to take her. Philadelphia possible on that trip, too.

Nashville: I have an IBPA board meeting 6 August through early morning of the 8th. Columbus, Cincinnati, Louisville? Or, the longer loop back of Asheville, Baltimore/DC, etc?

I haven’t taught in several of these cities before and would really like to, so if you’re interested, please email admin (at) knitgrrl (dot) com and let’s see what we can figure out!

There’s nothing more awesome than a gym full of spinning wheels at Yarn School / Felt School at the Harveyville Project.

Introducing: Daily Zen

June 9, 2014

I’m starting up a new feature called Daily Zen with knitterly stuff from around the internet. Pictures, books I think look interesting, you name it… Let’s kick it off with the source of our hobby. SHEEP! Image by James Good “Sheep along Highway 395 in California.” Image by Peewubblewoo “Sheep in winter, in a field […]

Updated shop page & new stuff on the way

June 9, 2014

I’ve been playing around with some new tools and toys (when I’m not up to my eyeballs working on the new Cooperative Press shopping cart…seriously, it’s been 12-hr days around here with that alone), and one of the fun things I like is Amazon’s astore functionality. Here’s one I’ve been working on putting together with […]

Books, books, books!

February 4, 2014

Sometimes I think to myself I was always headed for this life. As a kid, I took out WAY more books from the library than anyone else. I remember a librarian, wide-eyed, looking at the stack of books I was carrying (arms straight out, filled all the way up to my chin), saying to my […]

New year, new classes

December 22, 2013

It’s been a while since I offered classes on my online site but given that I won’t be on the teaching circuit in 2014 as much as I have been for the past 18 months, I thought it would be fun to teach this way again! I like teaching online because we can get even […]
