Upcoming Classes this Fall and Winter
We are excited to share the list of classes I will be teaching this fall and winter. I will be teaching locally as well as in Plymouth, MA this December and in Rhode Island in January. I hope to see you there. Please see below with more information.
We are still raising funds for our Vogue Knitting Live show. We are so close to meeting our goal. We are about $1,200 away from that. We are doing a self-crowdfunding campaign to help with the cost of the show as well as funds to grow the business. We want to thank all of you for your support and we are thrilled to go!
Here is the amazing deal we are offering: whatever amount you contribute we will match it as a gift certificate to shop online at Lady Dye Yarns. Our campaign ends Nov. 30th. Every penny counts and we would appreciate all contributions.
I’m offering two amazing incentives to keep it simple compared to other crowdfunding incentives.
- Whatever amount you donate. I’ll match that in a form of a gift certificate to shop online at Lady Dye Yarns to shop starting December 5th when all new colorways will be released. As well as a Lady Dye Yarns drawstring project bag. (My new colorways are amazing! Check out my Instagram feed. There’s something for everyone). In addition, I would do a spotlight on you for our online magazine.
- If you do not knit but have an organization/business, I will give your company 2 months of free advertising on my website as well as a Lady Dye Yarns drawstring project bag. In addition, I would do a spotlight on your organization of business for our online magazine.
Easiest way to support me is by clicking this link which will take you to my PayPal.me account and make a donation. Once I receive notice, I will send you your gift certificate link.

Mosaic Knitting: Coined by Barbara G. Walker in the late 1960’s, “Mosaic knitting” may be the least known form of colorwork, yet it is a wonderful and easy way of knitting with two colors. In this class, Diane will demystify the technique, and show students how easy and satisfying it can be. It is great for beginners who haven’t yet worked in multiple colors, or for intermediates who want to add the technique to their skillset. In addition to the technique, we’ll discuss how to create Mosaic patterns, and put your own imagination for design to work.
