We are very excited to host designer and author Marie Greene for a special weekend event October 13-14 to promote her new book, The Joy of Yarn!  

Join us for a special afternoon/evening with best-selling author and knitwear designer, Marie Greene from Olive Knits. We’ll be celebrating the release of her fourth book, The Joy of Yarn, with a delightful (and informative) mini-workshop/book talk and book signing weekend! 

In a special workshop, Marie will share her story about how an overwhelming stash and a failed attempt at a yarn diet helped her develop an entirely new approach to buying and storing yarn. (Here’s a hint: yarn diets aren’t the answer.) Marie will teach us how to shop for the makers we are today, not the ones we used to be - or the ones we think we might be down the road. 

She’ll also share her insights from working with thousands of knitters – from all over the world – helping them gain control of their stash, shop with confidence, and get organized in a way that really works. 

This practical and engaging workshop is perfect for knitters and crocheters of every skill level; you’ll come away inspired and ready to experience The Joy of Yarn in a whole new way!

We hope you’ll join us for this special weekend with Marie.
