There are many workshops being offered at the PEC Fibrefest. Check out the one that I will be presenting below:

Choosing the Right Type of Yarn

Time: 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

The last workshop of the day!


The best way to become a more confident knitter or crocheter, is to understand the different types of yarns available today. Once you know the basics, you will choose the right type of yarn every time. We will cover yarn weights and various ways to determine yarn weights, conversion guides, fibres, and substituting yarns.
