This year’s Knit Out will be the last. We’ve had a fantastic 13 year run with our event, but after much consideration I decided it was time to do something new. Rather than go out with a whimper, it will end with a big bang.
So if you’ve been meaning to attend “some day”, this is the year to come!
We are featuring the fabulous Fiona Ellis, Franklin Habit and Susanna Hansson.
Franklin & Fiona were here 2 years ago. We just couldn’t get enough of them so I had to have them back one more time. Susanna has been on my list of people I’ve wanted to invite for years, and I am so happy she will be coming. She is one incredible instructor!
When we started this event back in 2001, it was a huge success. People from across the United States and Canada flocked to Guthrie. Back then there were huge events (like Stitches), small appearances by a single instructor in a yarn shop, and few events in between.
We managed to put together a first-class event with three well-known instructors that had all of the grandness of a big event, but in a relaxed environment. We have watched many life-long friendships formed during this event.
As with any great idea, it becomes replicated. Many current events have been modeled after our Knit Out. When innovation becomes lost in this crowd, it is time to do something new.
In the interim, we are going to put everything we have into this final Knit Out. Next year is going to be a huge year for us in that we will be celebrating our 20th year in business, so it will be one big celebration after another. More on that soon.
