At the Kitchen Table Retreats

I have 2 really cool retreats to tell you guys about that are being hosted by Deb Accuardi of At the Kitchen Table Podcast. I have a special interest in these two retreats, because I am going to be involved with both of them!

The first is Have a Color-Full Day! Dye Workshop in Welches, OR on Saturday, July 18th. It will be hosted at the home and farm of Deb Accuardi, which she talks about on her podcast. This is going to be a really cool all day dye event! I am going to teach how to handpaint yarn exactly like how I handpaint everyday in my studio. Then the other instructor, Stevanie Pico of Abundant Yarn & Dyeworks, is going to teach natural dyeing. The class is limited to 20 people with half learning from me in the morning and the other half learning from Stevanie. Then there is a break for lunch, which if you have listened to the podcast you know it will be good. Then after lunch the 2 groups switch. This way you learn how to natural dye and handpaint yarn with acid dyes all in one day! I'm really excited about the event. I have even heard that people are already signing up for the event. It will be awesome! For more details are available here!

The other event is Techniques with Your Wine! at the Hotel Oregon in McMinnville, OR on October 9th - 11th. This retreat is focusing on technique. Follow an instructor for an entire weekend learning more about entrelac, cables, or stranded colorwork and steeking. There will also be a small vendor market of local indie dyers, including me! This weekend retreat is limited to 30 people. More details available here!

I have been working on the website, so please don't mind my dust! So far I have updated the yarn gallery and I have added pages for a contact me page, frequently asked questions page, and an events page for all of the shows I am doing this year! I also added a page with step by step instructions in case anyone would prefer to pay by check/money order instead of by credit card or paypal. Let me know what you think!
