Loopy Ewe Spring Fling: A Photo Recap

Over the weekend I had the honor of teaching beaded lace at The Loopy Ewe Spring Fling and oh my, what a wonderful weekend!  The flingers are legendary and I have to admit I was a bit nervous heading out there all on my own. Of course as soon as I got there my fears dissolved... will I ever learn that there is absolutely no reason to be nervous around knitters?

The Loopy Ewe!
Private shopping session at The Loopy Ewe... I did a little damage and left a few things behind I am pining after!  You can see Sheri heading to grab some yarn for a project she was itching to cast on for... love that!
The four teachers
The Teachers:  Kirsten Kapur, myself, Anne Hanson, and JC Briar
Wishing we had Sheri in this pic with us!  One of the parts I love about teaching at events like this is the time spent with other designers, Anne, JC, Kirsten and myself had some wonderful talks that really got me thinking (even more than usual)!

  9. I had a fantastic time in this class. I only took the class because it was the only one that I had not taken. But now I am converted to knitting with beads.

    Laura you are a fantastic instructor and very organized. You have a fantastic grasp of changing the way you explain to meet the need of the students. As we all know not everyone speaks/understands the same.

    Congratulation on a successful Spring Fling!
