Introduction of the Virtual AffiKNITy scholarship
Some knitters may face different obstacles when participating in a live knitting event. We at Virtual AffiKNITy hope that everyone will find fewer of these obstacles so that they can experience a relaxing, educational, community-driven weekend full of fiber and fun. We want to live up to our motto Knit, learn, laugh, repeat.
Taking part in a knitting retreat from the comfort of your own home is a special opportunity. Knitters may hesitate to attend personal events for a variety of reasons: accessibility issues that make travel difficult; Sensitivity to sound, light or crowds; Race or gender identity; or even knitting experience, which can make a knitter feel uncomfortable going to his first knitting event alone. Or it is simply not in a person’s budget if a show includes travel, hotel, meals and the cost of the event itself.
With Virtual AffiKNITy, knitters can participate from home, and everything else is done. The scholarship is intended for a “relaxed” package at skill level so that it is accessible to all skill levels!
The scholarship package includes:
- A goodie bag that will be delivered to your home and includes a web camera that you can use to show your hands during class. (See video on how it works HERE)
- A class with Norah Gaughan on cables open
- A class with Patty Lyons on knitting tips and tricks
- All evening events, including the opening game night, questions and answers from the fashion show teachers, Patty’s KAL kick-off
- A virtual tour of Long Island Yarn and Farm
- A lecture by Bristol Ivy
- Virtual marketplace with five providers that offer exclusive retreat vouchers
- Three retreat patterns from each guest teacher (Kate Atherley, Norah Gaughan, Mary Jane Mucklestone)
- Patty’s Fall Video Sweater Class
