The exciting news? I can now tell you that Shannon Okey and I will be taking our knitwear design and fashion illustration class to Chicago, IL on August 6th- 8th, for a weekend design retreat! If you are a member of Ravelry.com you can join the Hands-On Retreat group here and get all the info and updates. You can also go to the Hands-On site here.
Not only will you learn stuff about the business, marketing, designing and so forth of the knitwear industry, but we are both rather entertaining and totally not lame — or so we have been told.
UPDATE: This retreat has been canceled due to bizarre circumstances. I was only informed today. But, Shannon and I are currently looking at other options to teach our class as a weekend workshop, either in Chicago or Cleveland. More info TBA. Why waste a good lesson plan?
