Workshop at Shall We KnitI'm thrilled to be returning to New Hamburg, Ontario, to give another workshop at Shall We Knit in September. This time it will be a brunch workshop on "Glorious Garter ".
Our host will be Karen Crouch, pictured here in her wonderful shop.
I was there last October and had a wonderful time. This jewel of a yarn shop, nestled in Southern Ontario, a couple of hours outside Toronto, is definitely worth the trip. Beautifully designed and planned by Karen, it is a knitter's Mecca, filled with a huge range of yarns, many of them hand-dyed by local artisans.
She also makes sure that she has all the latest knitting books and designers' patterns available, too. And if she doesn't have what you want, she wants to know about it. Because she'll get it for you--and make sure that the next person who asks will not be disappointed.
The other interesting thing about Shall We Knit is that it is on the way to Stratford. Just think, you could visit the shop on your way to see a play at the Stratford Shakespeare Theatre !
But for 14 September, come for brunch and take in a workshop, too. If you have come to the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters' Fair, then this can be a great way to round out the week-end. Because New Hamburg is not far from Kitchener.
You can register for the brunch workshop here.
