I don't knit a lot of socks, so I'd been non-committal about this event. When I got the e-mail earlier today and went to the site, I noticed with interest that Priscilla Gibson-Roberts (best-known to me for Knitting in the Old Way) made the list.
Then I read through the entire list with the mini bios and credits on Stephanie's post and caught my breath when I read that Barbara Walker - THE Barbara Walker of the stitch Treasuries and Knitting From the Top - would attend and teach.
Who cares what she's teaching, the big question is what are the odds of getting in to that class?
Can you imagine a conference where classes by the likes of Lucy Neatby and Nancy Bush are not the first to fill because more famous people and people who rarely if ever do so will also teach there? I really appreciate Stephanie telling us she's as geeky and gob-smacked about these people as we are.
I hope they have a very good plan for class sign-ups. Where do I enroll?
