Come and "Get Stitched" at Kristin Nicholas' Leyden Glen Farm

Kristin Nicholas announces a new series of intensive and inspirational Knitting and Stitching Weekend Classes being held at Leyden Glen Farm, her family’s sheep farm and farmhouse in western Massachusetts. Classes will be held throughout the year in the antique cape farmhouse, in her studio, and gardens. Come and experience a weekend on a working sheep farm with one of North America’s most well-known handknitting designers.

A very small group of dedicated, creative knitting enthusiasts is invited to share Kristin’s inspirational farmhouse space while learning her knitting and stitching techniques. Participants will be inspired by Kristin’s hand-painted walls, her library full of knitting, stitching and art books, her ethnic and historic textile collection, and the antiques and ceramics that decorate the family’s home.

The participants will get to enjoy the screened-in porch, the hammock strung between two apple trees, the Adirondack chairs, and garden spaces while breathing in the surrounding hillsides, abandoned apple orchard, grazing sheep, farm kitties, Border Collies, and chickens. Roosters will crow, sheep will baaaah, dogs will bark and cats will purr. A memory will be made that you can keep for the rest of your life. Kristin is creative, funny, down-to-earth and you’ll love her energy and joie de vivre attitude towards knitting and life.
