Vera Sanon Top Down Fitting / Knitting Workshop

Did you wait until the last minute? I always do! We have opened up our registration to include up to 8 additional participants for Vera Sanon's workshop; although this is being held tomorrow evening, you still have time to register and knit the swatch if you would like to attend. If you can't make it this time, we're hoping she'll be back next Spring (we're working with her on a schedule) to teach a much longer version of her popular workshop. Please see the details below to register for tomorrow evening.

UPDATE: We are holding the event at Comfort Suites around the corner from the shop (ample parking, well-lighted, and more room to work on your project). 

Designer Vera Sanon will be in the Houston area this week and has offered to hold a workshop focused on fitting and knitting top down garments. Please register for the workshop after you've read through all the information below:

Bring this swatch to the workshop.
