PNW Crocheters – Crochet is coming to Red Alder Fiber Arts Retreat!

  • A yellow crocheted shawl with the words Shawls on the side.

The Red Alder Fiber Arts Retreat is happening February 13-16, 2020 in Tacoma, Washington, at Hotel Murano. This event is replacing the long-revered Madrona!

As you know, crochet has not been part of Madrona for many years. Ted Alder is changing that up and I’m teaching six crochet classes. I’m thrilled to be an instructor at the inaugural event! The classes I will be teaching are as follows:

Thursday PM: Shawls On the Side
Friday AM: Tunisian Basics
Friday PM: Tunisian Short Rows
Saturday AM: Tunisian Knit Entrelac
Sunday AM: Colorwork Made Easy
Sunday PM: Dragon Scales Bracelet

I’m happy to answer any questions you may have and I hope to see many of you there.
