This is your last week to sign up for Yarn School and Felt School at the Harveyville Project in Harveyville, Kansas. The school is founded by Nikol Lohr of The Thrifty Knitter blog and author of Naughty Needles.
Yarn School only: September 25 – 28
Fiber School (Yarn School + Felt School): September 25 – October 1
CRAFT readers can register with the secret password “latebird” and you’ll get a bonus fiber surprise when you check in.
Yarn School will be taught by Adrian Bizilia of Hello Yarn and Fiddlehead Mittens fame and Jennifer Schermerhorn of Whirled Yarn and Settlers Farm (and a wee bit by me). It’s $475 ($425 in the a hostel/group room) for 4 days, including room, 3 meals + snacks, all classes, equipment use & supplies, 2# fiber to dye, and a sweet goodie bag. Sept 25-28.
Yarn School also coincides with our tiny (pop. 267) town’s annual fair, so there will be a small-town parade, hot dog eating contest, chainsaw sculpting, funnel cake, etc., just a few blocks away!
Felt School is taught by Shannon Okey of the Knitgrrl books, Felt Frenzy, Spin to Knit, Alt Fiber, etc. It’s $325 ($295 in the a hostel/group room) for 2 days including room, 3 meals + snacks, all classes, equipment use & supplies, needle felting tools to keep, and a another awesome goodie bag. Sept 30-Oct 1.
Students who do both and stay for the full week get a free bonus day, plus a free 4-hour session in the Dye Lab.
