We are thrilled to host the second annual Hudson Valley Workshops in Kingston, New York! This year we’ll be joined by Abby Franquemont, Jillian Moreno, and Stephanie Pearl-McPhee for three full days of fiber prep, spinning, and knitting workshops.

The workshops take place the week before New York Sheep and Wool Festival – which means one can learn from world-class instructors during the week and still imbibe the full Rhinebeck experience on the weekend! Workshop are on Tuesday, October 13th through Thursday, October 15th, 2020. While the Sheep and Wool Festival only takes place on Saturday and Sunday, October 17th and 18th, several fiber arts events take place in the area on Friday, October 16th – including  Indie Untangled and Needles Up. Rhinebeck isn’t just a weekend anymore… it’s a whole week.

Without further ado… here’s the workshop lineup for 2020:
