The Creative Connection

Hi Knitters,
Thank you for all of the warm wishes and positive thoughts. You are a good, supportive and kind bunch.

I am very excited and honored to be included with a fantastic group of teachers for the upcoming Creative Connection Event in St. Paul. The event takes place from September 15th to 17th and Vogue Knitting is sponsoring one day at the event.

To specifically see the line-up for the Vogue Knitting day click here! You'll find Shannon Oakey, Drew Emborsky, Kristin Nicholas, Trisha Malcolm, Iris Schreier, Gale Zucker, Annie Modesitt, Amy Detjen, Chris Bylsma, Melanie Falick, Carol Sulcoski, Rosemary Drysdale, Josh Bennett, and more...

I am teaching a Toy Knitting Workshop. We are making the mouse from Spud & Chloë at the Farm and learning and refining a ton of toy knitting techniques along the way.

I am speaking as part of a panel on Thursday, September 15th afternoon as well. I can't find that on the site but I will share more on this later.

Here is the schedule for the two workshops I am teaching:

TIME: 8:00 am - 11:00 am

TIME: 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm

During the class I will be conducting loads of small group demonstrations on specific toy-making techniques. It is a fun, happy and active class! You will walk out with a finished knit mouse and a lot of new tricks and tips up your sleeve for toy knitting.

Also, I am happy to sign any of your Itty-Bitty books and Spud & Chloë at the Farm books so be sure to bring them along.
As always, my generous company, Spud & Chloë/Blue Sky Alpacas, is providing every student with some wonderful gifts just for coming to the class. They never disappoint and make the class really special with their generosity.

I always throw in some fun giveaways, too. The gifts and the giveaways add so much excitement to the class. I love it.

Please let me know if you are coming to join me. I added The Creative Connection Event link to the top of the sidebar so you can easily visit the site anytime.
best, susie

This is very cool. I hope you have a great time. I already know your students will! I wish I could attend, but that is simply not possible.

And you still have my continued hugs and prayers.

See, that's just one of the really cool things I miss by not living in the US.

Neat-o! I know you'll have a blast and the lucky knitters who'll go will just love all that time w/you. Can't wait to see you later that month.

Just saw Spud & Chloe at the Farm in knitsimple mag's Read 'Em & Stitch section. :) Yay. Made me smile.

"One-hundred-plus pages of whimsy, as knitted-toy master Anderson creates a farm scene to rival Old MacDonald's... Chloe has a pert embroidered smile and a head full of red yarn that rivals Jessie the Cowgirl's. Bow-tied Spud is equally cheerful: His fleece, in a twisted loop stitch, is fleecy indeed..."

Hope this made you smile! :)
