Fiber Camp Boston

I'm so excited for Fiber Camp this weekend! First, a brief description- from fiber camp Boston's website:

FiberCamp Boston is a PodCamp like community un-conference for fiber craft enthusiasts including knitters, crocheters, weavers, spinners, dyers, and anyone curious about fiber crafts. Fibercamp is based on the fact that everyone has something to share and teach. Connect with the community by sharing your passion.

Because the time is limited this is not like other conferences. People will present and teach smaller bite-sized ideas and techniques that will range from beginning fair isle to strategies for slow stashing using Ravelry. Some presentations might be demonstration-only and completely PowerPoint-based and some will be hands-on. Because this conference is powered by the people who attend it, you are responsible to be a part of the conversation. So if it's a big group where the presenter cannot get around to your area and you figured it out, please feel free to help out.

As if this wasn't awesome enough... I'll be attending workshops on photographing knitting, drop spinning, crochet techniques, double knitting, chart writing, kitchener stitch, fitting sweaters, reclaiming yarn from old sweaters, and business development.

I'll also be teaching beginning knitting and needle felting... so much with with pointy objects in store this weekend! If you're in the Boston area, come join the fun- Its only $40 to register, and you can attend and teach as many things as you want. Besides learning and teaching, I'm really looking forward to meeting other fiber enthusiasts in the area!
