Melisssa Leapman coming to Nine Rubies Knitting in January!

Noted author and designer Melissa Leapman is coming to Nine Rubies Knitting in January for a weekend of workshops! Melissa is the author of more than 5 knitting and crochet books, and her designs have appeared in every major knitting magazine. She has also been a guest on DIY's Knitty Gritty several times. Melissa is known for her contemporary but classic design pattern, cable, and crochet wizadry.

Nine Rubies Knitting has been fortunate to have a number of top designers and authors come to the shop in 2007. We've heard from many customers that they would have loved to work on socks with Nancy Bush, learned valuable tips from Lily Chin, learned combination knitting from Annie Modesitt or modular knitting from Iris Schreier. Alas, these classes were all during the week. Well, we've listened to our customers and will be doing workshops on the weekend. Melissa has taught these classes several times at Stitches and the TKGA shows. Now's your chance to enjoy them in the cozy atmosphere here at the shop.

Here's the schedule:

Saturday, January 26th
9:00 am - 12:00 pm: Basic Pattern Drafting ($70 plus materials)
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm: Crochet for Cowards ($70 plus $20 materials fee payable to the instructor)

Sunday, January 27th
9:00 am - 12:00 pm: Cable Ready ($70 plus materials)
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm: Celtic Cables ($70 plus materials)

Please stop by the shop or call 650-685-6205 to register.
