Knitwear designer Kitty Bryan is travelling from Washington State to teach here at Between 2 Lakes and Kawartha Yarn and Fibre Festival, so this will be an incredibly special class. We're so pleased to be hosting.
Knitting with Silk is taking place on Friday June 8th from 1pm - 4pm. If you're coming into town early for the festival, why not pick up an extra class and stay overnight?
