Belinda shawl, from Mason-Dixon Knitting: Outside the Lines

We'll be hands-on, it's all about improving your photography of knitting/fiber arts and of the world around you, with the knitbloggy/crafter in mind. We'll also cover a couple of tricks for making the images sing online.

Thanks to my friend, knitwear designer Mary Lou Egan for inviting me to debut the She Shoots Sheep Shots Photography for Knitters Workshops - whew, that's a mouthful- in one of my very favorite places, the Twin Cities. I am beyond looking forward to it, can we speed up the week and get me there already???

This is going to be fun . Go sign up! Grab the camera, choose your projects to shoot, and see you there.

I truly, truly wish that I could be there.

It must be cheaper than mailing you all of my knitted projects so that you can photograph them for my blog...

Maybe next time you offer this wonderful class. :-)

That's so awesome, Gale. You've got to do one of these in CT.

Carole Knits said...

It's a bit far for me, ya know? Fingers crossed we can work this out for something in our neck of the woods.

Bullwinkle said...

That's two votes for where Carole Knits is ;) (My mom lives in the area - with enough notice, I could work it out.)

Cookie said...

I wanna go!

I hate living on this coast.

Ellen Bloom said...

Oh man! This sounds like a great class! I've always wanted to visit the Twin Cities too!!! I sure wish I could swing this trip. Double Darn! So, when are you coming out to the West Coast to teach this class?

Gauss said...

Gale, this sounds great! Can you please, please do one of these in the New Haven area?

evergreenknits said...

Sounds fantastic! Wish I were in the area to take it.

Have you thought about writing up your class notes and putting them out as a little downloadable publication, maybe on Etsy? Just a thought! I'd definitely be interested

Wow, I would love to take this class! Wish I lived closer. This is something I really struggle with; knitting is hard to photograph!!!

Celia said...

Come to the SF Bay Area!!

Nutella Nutterson said...

Please visit the Pacific NW with your class! Stitches? Sock Summit 2010? Or just spend a fabulous weekend in lovely Seattle... and teach!
