The event is free and open to the public.
FRIDAY – SUNDAY, May 19-21, 2017
Our instructors are Laura Nelkin and Jill Draper. They are both based in New York: Laura is in the Finger Lakes region, and Jill is from Kingston. Do check out their websites, Ravelry, and Etsy pages. You will find that Laura loves lace, which she incorporates into designs for shawls, accessories, jewelry, and decorations. Jill loves color and Jill loves yarn. She hand-dyes or hand paints locally sourced yarns and designs patterns to knit and crochet.
All activities will take place in our meeting place, The Hyatt Place, 5020 Main St, Amherst, NY 14226.
Mark your calendars now! This is a not-to-miss event, all in our own backyard!
