Today we have our beloved guest hosts, education manager Amy Greeman, and spinning and weaving manager Leslie Ann Bestor in the studio. Amy and Leslie Ann are chatting with Kristin Nicholas, author, farmer, designer, knitter, crocheter, and color expert, who lives right here in Western Massachusetts. This summer and fall, Kristin is hosting three weekends of classes. On July 15th and 16th, Kristin will be having a two-day fabric painting class, where students will learn all about fabric and lampshade painting. On July 29th and 30th, Kristin will be teaching fabric painting, decorative embroidery, and ceramic tile design. Finally, in September, there will be classes on color for knitters, embroidery on knitting, and how to turn your swatches into a cohesive afghan project.

You will not want to miss out!
