Barbara Benson | Mosaic & Lace Knits | Saturday times TBD
Barbara Benson, author of Mosaic & Lace Knits: 20 Innovative Patterns Combining Slip-Stitch Colorwork and Lace Techniques.

Detailed, creative and innovative knitted accessory patterns that are well written, yarn conscious, and fun to knit.

My work focuses on creating detailed and beautiful accessory patterns. I love a small project because it means I can conceivably get it done within a month or two, instant gratification on a knitting timeline. Also, I despise weaving in ends. If I can get away with only one or two skeins of yarn then I have fewer ends to weave in.

While my first love is lace, color-work is a close second (mosaic in particular) and I have a definite soft spot for interesting textures. I keep waiting for cables to seize my imagination and can foresee the day when they become an obsession, but that day has not yet arrived. One obsession that has arrived and is here to stay is photography.

Nancy Furstinger | UNSTOPPABLE: True Stories of Bionic Animals | (Saturday, 9-4)
Nancy Furstinger is the author of many books featuring animals. Her latest, UNSTOPPABLE: True Stories of Amazing Bionic Animals, are inspiring stories about bionic animals-- who make their way around with the help of prosthetics, braces, orthotics, and wheelchairs. While reading these stories of perseverance and hope, readers will meet the caretakers, prosthetists, vets, and loving families who help to make the recovery of these remarkable animals possible. Furstinger offers a glimpse into the exciting technologies, such as 3D printing and brain-controlled prosthetics, that are helping to improve the lives of animals and humans alike.

As Nancy writes, “These uplifting stories show that physically challenged animals can adapt to almost any circumstance. They celebrate what it means to be considered ‘different,’ and demonstrate that there’s no such thing as normal.”

Nancy Shaw | Sheep Go To Sleep and more! | (Saturday, 9-4)
Author Nancy Shaw  has come back with her marvelous flock of  stories about our favorite sheep.  This year Sheep Go To Sleep, will be available in the board book and hardcover.  The tale begins with the walk home. It's time for bed but the sheep just aren't ready to settle down. But no fear.  A caring and trust worthy sheepdog is there to help. What will these restless sheep need before they are ready to go to sleep?  A hug?  A blanket?  A drink of water?  Will this loving and dedicated collie ever get these bleating sheep to sleep?  We simply love this story and know you will too.  It's already a beloved classic, as is Sheep in a Jeep which is also making it's debut as a board book.

Visit Nancy on Facebook !

Nancy Shaw has written some of the most beloved modern books about sheep.   As she says, "I'd been intrigued by picture books for a long time, but reading to my children made me much more tuned in to them. My daughter and son loved silly stories. We were on a dull car trip in 1982 when I tinkered with animal rhymes, which turned into Sheep in a JeepSheep on a ShipSheep in a ShopSheep Out to EatSheep Take a HikeSheep Trick or TreatSheep Blast Off!, and Sheep Go to Sleep have followed."

Nikki Van De Car | New book! SereKNITy: Peaceful Projects to Soothe and Inspire | (Saturday, all day)

Growing up, Nikki Van De Car only ever wanted to read books. She left her home in Volcano, Hawaii to study English Literature at Carleton College in Minnesota, figuring it didn’t matter if it was cold since all she wanted to was sit under a blanket and read, anyway. After graduating, she moved to New York City to become a literary agent, and found that the most rewarding aspect of her work was helping authors craft their stories, whether in fiction, memoir or nonfiction—because every book really does tell a story.

Nikki left agenting in 2009 to raise her daughter, and to pursue her secondary love of knitting. She is the author of What To Knit When You’re Expecting and What To Knit: The Toddler Years, along with SereKNITy, published in April 2017 and the upcoming Feng Crochet: Calming Projects for a Harmonious Home in the fall of 2017. Nikki found that the act of knitting brought her a sense of peace and internal understanding that she had been missing, and it inspired her to pursue yoga, meditation, shinrin-yoku, and to develop her spiritual practice.

Nikki joined kn literary to get back to working with words, and the people who write them. She loves fostering an idea. Helping writers envision precisely what they want to say, and working with them on sharing their story, is work that feels like play.  After all, what could be better than to help grow a book into something that can change the world?

Heather Ross | How to Catch A Frog, Craft Books + *new book* Boys: An Illustrated Field Guide (Saturday, all day)
Heather Ross is an illustrator and fabric designer whose crafty creations have found commercial success and a massive online following. She has illustrated the Crafty Chloe books Crafty Chloe and Dress-Up Mess-Up and is also the author of the craft book Weekend Sewing. She grew up in the Vermont countryside and has a tremendous appreciation for nature, which continues to influence her work now that she lives with her husband in New York City. Visit her at HeatherRoss.squarespace.com.

Heather's new book, Boys: An Illustrated Field Guide is a lovely message for girls and women everywhere, and the boys they love.

Much of Heather Ross's creative work has been inspired by her being born into an eccentric family of artists and idealists in a rural corner of Vermont during the 1970s. According to Heather, that environment was defined by stunning natural beauty, creative and innovative living, and daily lessons in self-reliance. It also included equal parts of general dysfunction, a self-imposed but nearly inescapable poverty, and little exposure to basic life skills.
When, as a twenty-something, Heather complained to her mother about a long list of things she had missed out on and that had compromised her chance of ever leading a normal life (immunizations, a healthy respect for authority), her mother waved a hand and replied, Well, you should thank me, because you have a lot of good stories instead. "How to Catch a Frog" is a collection of those stories, plus others that show Ross's eventual route to success as an artist, entrepreneur, and mother, all animated by Ross s delightful illustrations and how-to instructions.

Knitting expert Margaret Hubert has many books using granny squares and more. Personalize any knitting pattern for a perfect fit and style all your own, with expert help from Margaret Hubert!

Designers have to create knitting patterns in standard sizes, but very few people actually match up to those "average" measurements. Body shapes vary, weight fluctuates, and good fit means different things to different people; so what is a knitter to do?

Customize Your Knitting teaches you how to adjust standard patterns to fit your unique measurements. Through techniques that Margaret Hubert has used for years to teach classes on custom fitting, you can learn to adjust patterns for a perfect fit for yourself or someone else. Yarn shop instructors can use the book to teach classes for their customers.

Working a garment from the top down is a popular knitting technique, and now, with Top-Down Crochet Sweaters, designer Dora Ohrenstein opens up the technique to crocheters, offering them the chance to unpack and explore all the beautiful possibilities available with top-down crochet garments.

Now back in her native land, she is at the helm of Pom Pom in North America. While in London she wrote her MA dissertation on knitting in 20th century women's literature and worked for a publisher, a gallery, and a knitting shop, leaving her with a random but particular set of skills that could really only lead to running a knitting magazine. Her favourite things about running a knitting magazine include photo shoots, testing out the cocktail recipes, and getting yarn in the mail.

Lydia Gluck is co-founder and editor of Pom Pom Quarterly. She was born in London, grew up in Wales, studied in Manchester, and left her heart in Mexico. She has always had a crafty streak, dabbling in everything from furniture making to papier mache. Lydia has a background in linguistics, and spends a lot of time trying to draw parallels between knitting and grammar. Now she heads up the London Pom Pom office, which is pretty much her favourite job ever. When she is not knitting she can be found doing karaoke, painting her nails, or indulging in the excellent people-watching London has to offer.

Barbara Benson | Mosaic & Lace Knits | Sunday times TBD
Barbara Benson, author of Mosaic & Lace Knits: 20 Innovative Patterns Combining Slip-Stitch Colorwork and Lace Techniques.

Detailed, creative and innovative knitted accessory patterns that are well written, yarn conscious, and fun to knit.

My work focuses on creating detailed and beautiful accessory patterns. I love a small project because it means I can conceivably get it done within a month or two, instant gratification on a knitting timeline. Also, I despise weaving in ends. If I can get away with only one or two skeins of yarn then I have fewer ends to weave in.

While my first love is lace, color-work is a close second (mosaic in particular) and I have a definite soft spot for interesting textures. I keep waiting for cables to seize my imagination and can foresee the day when they become an obsession, but that day has not yet arrived. One obsession that has arrived and is here to stay is photography.

Nancy Shaw | Sheep Go To Sleep and more! | (Sunday, 9-2)
Author Nancy Shaw  has come back with her marvelous flock of  stories about our favorite sheep.  This year Sheep Go To Sleep, will be available in the board book and hardcover.  The tale begins with the walk home. It's time for bed but the sheep just aren't ready to settle down. But no fear.  A caring and trust worthy sheepdog is there to help. What will these restless sheep need before they are ready to go to sleep?  A hug?  A blanket?  A drink of water?  Will this loving and dedicated collie ever get these bleating sheep to sleep?  We simply love this story and know you will too.  It's already a beloved classic, as is Sheep in a Jeep which is also making it's debut as a board book.

Visit Nancy on Facebook !

Nancy Shaw has written some of the most beloved modern books about sheep.   As she says, "I'd been intrigued by picture books for a long time, but reading to my children made me much more tuned in to them. My daughter and son loved silly stories. We were on a dull car trip in 1982 when I tinkered with animal rhymes, which turned into Sheep in a JeepSheep on a ShipSheep in a ShopSheep Out to EatSheep Take a HikeSheep Trick or TreatSheep Blast Off!, and Sheep Go to Sleep have followed."

Nikki Van De Car | New book! SereKNITy: Peaceful Projects to Soothe and Inspire | (Sunday, all day)

Growing up, Nikki Van De Car only ever wanted to read books. She left her home in Volcano, Hawaii to study English Literature at Carleton College in Minnesota, figuring it didn’t matter if it was cold since all she wanted to was sit under a blanket and read, anyway. After graduating, she moved to New York City to become a literary agent, and found that the most rewarding aspect of her work was helping authors craft their stories, whether in fiction, memoir or nonfiction—because every book really does tell a story.

Nikki left agenting in 2009 to raise her daughter, and to pursue her secondary love of knitting. She is the author of What To Knit When You’re Expecting and What To Knit: The Toddler Years, along with SereKNITy, published in April 2017 and the upcoming Feng Crochet: Calming Projects for a Harmonious Home in the fall of 2017. Nikki found that the act of knitting brought her a sense of peace and internal understanding that she had been missing, and it inspired her to pursue yoga, meditation, shinrin-yoku, and to develop her spiritual practice.

Nikki joined kn literary to get back to working with words, and the people who write them. She loves fostering an idea. Helping writers envision precisely what they want to say, and working with them on sharing their story, is work that feels like play.  After all, what could be better than to help grow a book into something that can change the world?

Margaret Hubert - Granny Squares, Customized Knitting and More! (Sunday, 10-4)
Knitting expert Margaret Hubert has many books using granny squares and more. Personalize any knitting pattern for a perfect fit and style all your own, with expert help from Margaret Hubert!

Designers have to create knitting patterns in standard sizes, but very few people actually match up to those "average" measurements. Body shapes vary, weight fluctuates, and good fit means different things to different people; so what is a knitter to do?

Customize Your Knitting teaches you how to adjust standard patterns to fit your unique measurements. Through techniques that Margaret Hubert has used for years to teach classes on custom fitting, you can learn to adjust patterns for a perfect fit for yourself or someone else. Yarn shop instructors can use the book to teach classes for their customers.

While in London she wrote her MA dissertation on knitting in 20th century women's literature and worked for a publisher, a gallery, and a knitting shop, leaving her with a random but particular set of skills that could really only lead to running a knitting magazine.

Lydia Gluck is co-founder and editor of Pom Pom Quarterly. She was born in London, grew up in Wales, studied in Manchester, and left her heart in Mexico. She has always had a crafty streak, dabbling in everything from furniture making to papier mache. Lydia has a background in linguistics, and spends a lot of time trying to draw parallels between knitting and grammar. Now she heads up the London Pom Pom office, which is pretty much her favourite job ever. When she is not knitting she can be found doing karaoke, painting her nails, or indulging in the excellent people-watching London has to offer.
