VKLive Seattle postponed; pattern sale and local classes

It’s official: Vogue Knitting Live Seattle has been postponed. With the COVID-19 outbreak hitting the Seattle area particularly hard, this is a wise decision.

Teachers, vendors, organizers, and participants have prepared for this show, so it’s disappointing that we won’t be together. The vendors, especially, have invested in preparing inventory, and it won’t be sold next weekend. The vendor list is still up; if you’d like to support them with a purchase, you can see who they are here. I see names of some local favorites on the vendor list, including Knitted Wit, Hazel Knits, and Despondent Dyeworks.

As for me, I’m having a pattern sale to help make up for a lost work weekend. You can get 20% off my patterns on Ravelry with the code POSTPONED through March 15, 2020. Knit something fun!

In the meantime, if I can gather enough people, I could do a Petite Brioche beginning brioche class here in Portland on Saturday, March 14, from 10:30 to 12:30, $25. It would be at Fremont United Methodist Church, the same building where Puddletown Knitters Guild meets.

Or would you like to learn basic entrelac, knitted flat? The notes for this class are the foundation of my upcoming Minerva Cowl or Scarf (no worries; it’s been tech edited!). Class would be from 1:30 to 4 pm, same venue, $30.

I know it’s short notice, but I’m game if you are. Leave a comment to let me know if you’re interested in either or both classes, and I’ll let you know if it’s happening by Thursday.

For now I’ll be home, transforming my Rose City Yarn Crawl goodies into new designs for you.

And for Bisquee and Calvin. We need to keep the kibble supply rolling!

  1. I’d be in for the entralac class! Have made before but always find your instruction insightful!

    • Hi, Laura:

      Yes; I know you took my Athena class way back when. Minerva is Athena’s alter ego, knit flat and so it has the left and right side triangles that we didn’t do with Athena. Good building blocks!

      I’ll let you know if class is on, soon. I have a lot of maybes so far!

    I think I can do the brioche class Saturday morning.

  3. I am sorry we won’t get to meet up this week – hoping it will happen with the rescheduled VKL Seattle. Or somewhere else – who knows! Looking forward to taking your Elongated Stitches class 🙂
