 KNITTING GUILD OF GREATER BUFFALO 

SPRING SEMINAR - MAY 14 and 15, 2016 

RAMADA INN - 2402 NORTH FOREST ROAD, AMHERST 14068 

We are very excited to have the great Ann Budd coming for our Spring Seminar. Ann has been the editor of Interweave Knitting, the author of numerous knitting books and fabulous designs, and the creator of several knitting "apps." She is a first rate teacher and a lot of fun. Due to her other responsibilities, Ann does not do a lot of Workshop events and so we are very fortunate to have her. When she does teach, her classes sell out and are generally $100 per three hours of class. The guild is bringing these classes to you at $35 per three hours of class ($40 for non-members). Don't miss out on this great opportunity. 

There are 3 classes: 1 on Saturday for 6 hours: 9AM - 12N and 1PM - 4PM, and 2 on Sunday for 3 hours each: 9AM - 12N and 1PM - 4PM. You may register for as many classes as you like. We will register Guild members in order of receipt of your registration as follows: 

1. All registrations postmarked or received by Wednesday, March 30, 2016 from Guild Members, in order of receipt. 

2. All registrations postmarked or received after Wednesday, March 30, 2016 from Guild Members or Non-Guild Members in order of receipt. 

REGISTRATIONS WILL BE CONFIRMED BY EMAIL 

Class Descriptions: (Each class is limited to 25 participants) 


 Saturday, May 14, 9am - 12n and 1pm - 4pm: Sweaters from the Top Down (Raglan & Seamless Yoke) 

Are you tired of putting together sweater pieces like a jigsaw puzzle, only to have an ill-fitting sweater? This class is for you! Learn from the master how to knit a sweater from the top down-- where you can actually try on the sweater as you knit it, to insure perfect fit. In the class, you will end up with an infant sized sweater while you learn all of the basics about sweater construction and sizing a sweater from the top down. Note: for this class you will need to either purchase, borrow or share with a classmate, Ann Budd's excellent book: Knitter's Handy Book of Top Down Sweaters. This is a book you will want to add to your library, and you can purchase it on Amazon:

Sunday, May 15, 9am - 12n: Conquering the Kitchener Stitch 

The Kitchener stitch should be in every knitter's repertoire-- useful for creating a seamless closure, grafting, and fixing mistakes. Ann will guide you through this handy graft for stockinette, reverse stockinette and garter stitches. 


Sunday, May 15, 1pm - 4pm: Socks at Any Gauge 

How to create a pair of socks that will fit you perfectly with any stitch and with any gauge yarn
