Clara Parkes This Saturday!

Share Button

Founder and editor of Knitters Review, Clara Parkes, will be at WEBS this Saturday!  I am so excited to have her at the store and so bummed I’m going to miss her visit.  I’ll be in Baltimore at Stitches.  Clara will be teaching a class from 10-4:30.  Titled, The Wonder of Yarn, this workshop will “lead you to a much better understanding of yarn, how’s it’s made, who makes it, how it gets to you, and what it longs to become in your hands”.    I just checked with Customer Service and it looks like there are still one or two spots left, so if you are interested, I would get yourself registered asap! (click on the link above and scroll a bit down the page to find the class registration).

If you can’t make the class, please be sure to join us from 4:30-6:00pm for a book signing and reception with Clara.  This is a great chance to say “hi” to one of the nicest people in our industry.  Clara will be signing her book “The Knitters Book of Yarn” (which I have affectionately renamed the “Great Big Book Of Yarn That Everyone Must Own”. 

Sorry Clara, I just call ’em how I see ’em.  I honestly own two copies of this book.  One that I keep on my bookshelf in my office and one on the bookshelf here at home. 

The reception is free and we’ll have our usual lite knosh! 

Oh – if you make it to the event and have a blog, shoot me an email (kathy.elkins AT yarn DOT com) to your post/pictures and I’ll gladly link to them!

This is one of our last events/guest teachers of the year.  Who do you want to see at WEBS in 2009?  Leave me your thoughts in the comments and we’ll see what we can do!

Tomorrow I’ll give you a sneak peek at Stitches East 2008!

    Darn! I have to get back home after class on Saturday, so I won’t get pictures of the signing. But of course I already have my copy!

    Hmm…maybe some class pics? 🙂

    Class pics would be great too! Plus, I’m sure if you have your book with you, she’ll graciously sign it at some point during the day 🙂 She’s just that kind of person.

    ME! I want to see ME at Webs in 2009! Oh. Wait. I already scheduled for that…

    I shall take pics for you if you want, and not just because you sign my checks. Although that probably helps.

    Have fun in Baltimore!!
