The deadline for advance registration for the Fall Festival Knitting Machine Seminar is August 31st. The event is hosted by Needle-Tek and it’s in Clackamas, Oregon.

This year, an extra day has been added to host Iris Bishop, a renowned machine knitter from the UK. I love how Iris combines completely different types of fair isle designs in the same garment. It will be great to see her samples in person rather than pictures from books.

Here’s crossing my fingers I didn’t procrastinate too long in mailing in my registration.

Iris is coming to Minnesota the weekend before she goes to Oregon. I’m really looking forward to her workshop. She’s such an artist. When there was nothing but 24 stitch punch cards available for Brother machine knitters, she cleverly made the designs look like landscapes or collages. Don’t know quite how to describe it, but it wasn’t the usual fare. That’s quite a tour she has ahead of her.
