We are very pleased to have the Vendor Marketplace open from 10:00 to 5:00 at which attendees will have access to a variety of yarns, roving, homespun, dyed yarns, along with an assortment of accessories. You will want to register soon to make sure you get your first choice in classes. The conference begins Friday evening, April 6, 2018, at 6:00 to 8:00 with speaker Cathy Briscoe from New York. She will be giving a talk on “Yarn Substitution”. Many times, a person falls in love with a pattern, but for one reason or another such as allergies to certain fibers, need for an easier care fiber, yarn is discontinued, or you have fallen in love with a certain brand of yarn, or you can't find the yarn recommended in the pattern. Substituting yarn can be difficult, especially when you're not familiar with the yarn or the pattern. Cathy will share her suggestions and helpful tips on how to make successful yarn substitutions. She will discuss the effects of fiber content, needle size, gauge, drape, texture and stitch definition on the finished project and how it effects choosing a new yarn. Cathy earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education. She began supporting her fiber obsession by teaching knitting and crochet at yarn shops, retreats and workshops, such as Knitter’s Day Out and Pittsburgh Knit & Crochet Festival. In addition, she is a designer of both knit and crochet patterns. Through her fascination for living history she also researches and knits period correct garments for living history interpreters. Registration will begin Saturday morning at 8:00 followed by morning and afternoon classes. This year we are offering a special feature with a Lunch Time Lecture by Linda Voss Plummer on the topic of “Designing Stash”. We all have that secret stash of yarn with which we don’t know what to do. Linda will give us some ideas of what to do with that stash. Linda comes to us from Coudersport, PA. She has taught locally and regionally, including the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival and at Chautauqua Institution, Kinzua Knit-Away, Finger Lakes Fiber Festival and has been fortunate to study with nationally and internationally recognized knitters. She hosts “Does a Bear Knit in the Woods?” retreats twice a year. Linda loves to lead students to the joy of knitting and then watch them become independent knitters, helping them create their own designs and make decisions about how they want to adapt patterns. Her special passions are cables, lace and two-color knitting such as Fair Isle and Scandinavian patterns.
