Later this month, I’ll be going to In the MKNG, a creativity festival in Bethel, New York. I’m going to tell you about some of the fun activities going on at In the MKNG in this post, including sharing a sneak peek of the supply kit for one of the classes I’ll be teaching!

Will I see you at @inthemkng, a new creativity festival taking place in Bethel, NY during the last weekend in September? I’ll be teaching #crochet and #knitting classes there and would love to meet up! This cutie in @lionbrandyarn Vanna’s Choice is one of the projects you’ll get the pattern for in my Crochet Rag Doll Characters class. The class kit includes #yarn and hooks from #LionBrand, stuffing from @fairfieldworld, @fiskarsamericas scissors, a variety of safety eyes and noses from @consumercrafts (packed securely in @velcrobrand PRESS-LOK bags), and notions from @knit_picks. To top it off, you’ll be able to carry your supplies in style with a tote from @canvascorp.

On Saturday morning, I’ll be co-teaching DIY This Cute Fall Knit with LoveKnitting. We’ll be making the Twister Headband, a beginner-friendly knitting project you can wear right away! (The photo below is © LoveKnitting.)
Saturday afternoon, Jessie At Home and I will be doing an interactive presentation (with goodie bags and giveaway prizes!) on the Creator Stage called the Care and Styling of Handmade Shawls. You can get a preview in Jessie’s Facebook Live.
On Sunday afternoon, I’ll be teaching Crochet Rag Doll Characters. We’ll work on a small lion rag doll in class, but you’ll get all the supplies you need (and some patterns from me) to make more rag doll characters at home. Here’s a sneak peak of the supply kit which is included in the cost of the class.
Thanks to Lion Brand, Knit Picks, Consumer Crafts, Fairfield World, VELCRO® Brand, Fiskars, and Canvas Corp for providing materials for each kit. It’s a pleasure to work with these wonderful companies and I’m so glad that each was able to provide enough for every student in the class.
Since you’ll need to change yarn colors from time to time, Fiskars provided Kids Scissors, which are my favorite for crafting on-the-go. They fit in your project bag and you don’t have to worry about slicing your fingers when you reach in for more supplies.
There are some more goodies that I don’t have pictures of because they are actually being shipped to Jessie since she is driving me up to In the MKNG. Fairfield is providing Poly-Fil, my favorite stuffing for my crochet rag dolls. And, I will pack all the supplies in each kit into its own Canvas Tote provided by Canvas Corp. Oh, and because I thought it would be cute, I’ll also include an Underground Crafter pencil in every kit.
Other than those three activities, my schedule at In the MKNG will be flexible. I look forward to meeting celebrity makers, listening to music, and getting my hands on some amazing craft supplies.
So, will I see you there? Let me know so we can set a time to meet up if you aren’t taking one of my classes.
