Melissa Leapman, author, designer and knitting/crochet instructor, sent me this little note to put on our blog:

I’m excitedly counting the days until my return visit (number 4? number 5????) to do a designer event at 3 Kittens.

Ten years?!?! Congratulations! It’s because you are one of the best, most comprehensive, and friendly yarn shops in the country–with the most fantastic customers! (Trust me because I know. Seriously, I’ve literally made a career out of visiting shops. <grin>)

Thanks, Melissa!

Patty Lyons to Visit 3 Kittens

lyons-patty-01

We’re so excited to announce that Patty Lyons will be visiting us September 30-October 2! Patty is a nationally recognized knitting teacher and technique expert who is known for teaching the “why” not just the “how” in her pursuit of training the “mindful knitter.” She specializes in sweater design and sharing her love of the much-maligned subjects of gauge and blocking.

She has taught nationally at guilds and knitting shows around the country. In addition, Patty’s designs and knitting articles have been published in Vogue Knitting, Interweave Knits, Knit Purl, Knitter’s Magazine, Cast On, Knit Style, and Creative Knitting magazines. Her designs have also been used by Classic Elite, Noro, Cascade, Tahki Stacy Charles, and Kollage Yarns.

Patty’s classes, both live and online, are extremely popular and routinely sell out. We’re excited to have Patty here for three classes and her highly enjoyable and interactive presentation, “Oops, I Accidentally Knit a Dress (Tales of Lies, Heartbreak and Denial).”

Here is the schedule of events. Make sure to click through to our website for more details.
