A weekend with Barry Klein - 2020 style
We're so excited to announce the (virtual) return of Barry Klein on November 21, 22, and 23, 2020!
It's always a great time when Barry, founder and creative director of Trendsetter Yarn Group, distributors of Trendsetter, GGH, Cardiff Cashmere, and Lana Grossa yarns, comes to visit. Barry has grown up in the business, having learned to knit in the back of his mothers shop in LA!
In the past not only has Barry come to see us in Cambria, but we've also taken the train to LA where he opened his warehouse to us. This year, we'll be taking that train trip virtually, where we'll have a trunk show of some of his most recent designs, 3 different classes, and a fantastic and exciting announcement on Sunday Morning!
The Train Schedule:
First Stop: Saturday Morning at 10AM to Noon - the Patchwork Scarf Class
- We kick off with a fun class at 10AM featuring a new, multi yarn, patchwork scarf/wrap he's designed. Available in 6 different colorways, you'll love this fun, fast project.
Second Stop: Saturday Afternoon at 1:00PM - The Trunk Show - Don't miss this opportunity to see all the latest designs and yarns that Barry has created for us. You'll see a wide variety of pieces so you'll have many options to choose from. It's a great time to plan your next project, or 2, or 3...
After a relaxing evening and a good nights sleep in your private sleeper car, we wake up and after a delicious breakfast we feel the train enter the mystery station.
Third Stop - Sunday Morning at 10 AM - A worldwide launch of a new collection.
- Feel the magic of Outlander(tm) at your fingertips with this officially licensed book of knitting: twenty patterns inspired by the hit series from STARZ and Sony Pictures Television, based on Diana Gabaldon's bestselling novels.
There will also be kits from Trendsetter, the provider of the yarns for most of these patterns!
Definitely plan to join us for this one, you'll be plaid you did!
Fourth Stop - Sunday Afternoon from 2PM to 4PM - Two sweater designs, One class
This class features one of the latest yarns from Trendsetter - Tiger. Tiger is an Alpaca/Wool/Polamide blend that's so soft and comes in a variety of colors that all feature a black stripe throughout the piece for a dramatic, modern color effect.
You'll choose either a boxy pullover that also features Icon, another soft yarn with just a hint of sparkle, or an oversized cardigan. Neither of the pieces are form fitting so you won't be stressing about perfect gauge the whole time. Both pieces also use similar techniques so you can choose your favorite to take the class.
One last overnight to take in everything we've seen on the trip so far. So many beautiful designs, so many wonderful yarns, it's been a whirlwind of experiences on this trip. We wake up, have breakfast and take one more class before we get off the train.
Fifth and Final Stop - Monday Morning at 10AM to Noon - the Scaha Class!
- This fun class will introduce you to Scaha, a one ball project that makes a hat and a scarf! (ScaHa, get it?) It's simple, fast, and fun! Perfect for a gift or to give to yourself.
