2020 is almost here!!
I love the new year, it’s a time to re-evaluate my current projects, and do some serious UFO/WIP evaluation.
I have listed a bunch of new classes at Picket Fence Quilt Co and I am filling the rest of my schedule for the beginning of 2020 with classes and workshops at The Studio.
January + February
Saturday, January 18th 1pm – 4pm

No matter your skill level, we ALL make mistakes in our knitting.
The confidence that comes when you learn a few tricks to keep your knitting on track will astound you!
Mistakes help us work smarter, not harder. Don’t let mistakes hold you back,
come and let me build your confidence in your knitting skills, you can do it!

You’ll learn how to fix:
