Diane Soucy is teaching a Top-Down Sweater Class at Jimmy Beans Wool!



Hi everyone!  I have some super exciting news for all of you local Reno-Tahoe customers!  On Saturday, February 11th, 2012, Diane Soucy of the Knitting Pure and Simple pattern line will be at Jimmy Beans in Reno to teach a Top-Down Sweater Class!  We are so excited to host Diane here in Reno for the first of what we hope will be many Designer Workshops.

Diane's Class will focus on top-down sweater construction using the top-down sweater pattern of your choice (check out all of her awesome designs on our site here).  She will focus on topics such as fit, customization, and the basics of creating your perfect top-down sweater! 

The class will be held from 10am-5pm with a 1 hour break for lunch.  The cost for this all-day workshop is $80.  Please call the Jimmy Beans Wool Retail store for more information and to sign up- (775) 827-YARN (9276).  The sign up deadline is Friday, February 3rd, so please call to reserve your spot as spaces are limited, however, you may make your payment anytime up until February 10th.

Hope to see you all there!

Happy knitting!

I'm a little over half way done with one of her patterns, #224 Weekend Neckdown Pullover. I'm using Rowan Big Wool and it's turning out so soft and comfy looking. Such a quick knit! Can't wait to wear it here in chilly NY. The pattern instructions are so easy to understand and I've never done a top down sweater before. What I would give to meet her and take her class.

Happy Knitting!
Diane

Kristen, I will eventually get to see all you. I'm originally from CA and planning to move back. Our best friends live near Sacramento, only 122 miles from Reno! Woo hoo
