Class This Saturday!

Class Collage

I'm teaching a class this coming weekend Saturday September 6th at Fiber College in nearby Searsport Maine. It is in a beautiful location right on the water, at Searsport Shores, a great family owned, old-time campground. This fabulous Fiber Event is run by the lively Astrid who I'm so happy I can call a friend. She is just the best! I think there may be a few spaces in my class, called Photographing Your Work, so follow the links. I'll share with you everything I can possibly think of that will get you on your way to sensational images!

Above are some of my own images, while below area few of the images I styled while working for Interweave Knits, all by my friend Chris Hartlove, the talented portrait photographer who was for years, the lensman for Interweave Knits. His rich images capture more than just the knitting project, they capture the soul of the knitter. Really, I'm not just being corny, its true!

Knitting college sounds like fun! I wish I could be there! And I miss those photos from IK. They do show the soul...

Oh, Maryjane! Do you think you could teach me to crochet that blanket? I just swooned so hard I fell off my chair.

What an amazing gift you have!

Mary Jane said...

I can teach you how to crochet that amazing blanket, but I didn't design it just styled it which was easy with it wrapped around the beautiful India! Kathy Merrik is the creative genius and she used the most wonderful Koigu wool...you can follow the link to the pattern...I agree, to die for. We were all swooning at the shoot!

I would sure like to join you! I love the white mittens you made with the beautiful needlework. I just want to know how to do an outline of the pattern on knitwear before you stitch it!?

Happy weekend!
