BOOKINGS are open and going fast!
Every garment knitter dreams of creating perfectly fitted couture knitwear. Elizabeth Doherty has taken her background in fine art and graphic design, paired it with her long experience of sewing tailored garments and furthered the engineering of seamless knitted garments that do exactly that. As anyone who has knitted one of Elizabeth's designs or been privileged to attend one of her classes, it's a revelation to see her thinking revealed in the structure and details of her methods. She is the author of Top Down: Reimagining Set In Sleeves, a book that has changed knitting lives!
This Muslin Sweater Retreat promises to have Elizabeth deliver the 'keys to the castle' as she walks each participant through the development and execution of their very own Muslin Sweater - a prototype that will contain the 'pattern' of your own body - informing the fit of all your garments to come. Elizabeth is joined by Lori Martz, a member of the Blue Bee Studios team that brings her skills as both a knitter and a teacher to the endeavor.
This Retreat is designed to include an active component and is held at high altitude.
