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

Nominations are now open! Nominate yourself or a friend. Tell us about the candidate and why he is perfect for this scholarship.
