Flock and Fiber? Yes Please!

Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival is just around the corner! This local fiber festival has something for everybody: yarn, fiber, classes, animals, cooking, shopping, and more.

I’m teaching two classes this year. Brioche Pastiche is sold out; I’m really looking forward to introducing more knitters to two color brioche in the round!

There’s still room in my Favorite Shawl Shapes class. We’ll make mini samples of four of my favorite shawl shapes, and talk about how to incorporate your design ideas into them. You’ll have a better understanding of how shawls are made, and a good basis for designing your own. Come join me on Saturday morning, September 22. Registration link is here; pre-register by September 8 to make sure you get the class info you need.

I’m judging the knitting entries at OFFF again this year. It was educational for me last year, and I hope my comments on lasts year’s entries were educational for the knitters! You can enter your knit, crochet, felted, woven, and other fiber projects at OFFF, as well as spinning. Last year’s winners were stunning, and all of the entries were worthy of praise.

One more class! A reminder that registration is happening now for the Nymphaea Shawl Retreat that I’m doing with Laurinda Reddig at Quinn Mountain Retreat in the Columbia River Gorge (near Camas), Nov. 9 – 11. There are only 4 knitter’s spots left. Come get a jump start on knitting or crocheting this beaded shawl with us! Gradient yarn by Fierce Fibers and beads are included in the registration price. Registration link here.

Fall is coming; make plans to get your knit on!

  1. Sounds like you’ll have a blast!

  2. Hiya!

    I know your super busy with OFFF this weekend. You’re classes look amazing!

    We would like to arrange for you to teach your easy, Intro to Brioche class at Northwest Wools in January – if you have availability then.

    We’ve talked about this before, but we’re now ready to get something booked and on both of our calendars. We think it will be a great way to kick off the New Year!

    Fridays starting at 1pm are usually open in our classroom. But if that’s not good for you, I’m sure we can sort out a different day/time.

    Let me know your thoughts about this when you have time…

    And have a great OFFF!

    Cheers Jackie Northwest Wools
