Whether you’re itching to mingle in person after the chilly winter months or you’d prefer to cozy up at home for a virtual knit-along, I’ve got the scoop on some upcoming knitting events that you won’t want to miss.

(Please note: All events take place in 2024 except where otherwise noted.)

In-Person Galore:

The Spinning Room

On April 12 and 13, I’ll be hitting up The Spinning Room in Altamont, NY for a whirlwind of lectures and classes. From tales of gauge tradgeties to a cornucopia of cool color techniques, we’re diving deep into the world of fiber arts, and you’re invited!

NOTE: The classes are sold out, but there’s still space in the April 12 Event.

Harrisville Designs

Mark your calendars for May 17 and 18 because I’ll be making a stop at Harrisville Designs in New Hampshire. I LOVED teaching at this amazing place. If you’ve never been, seriously, treat yourself. Join us for:⁠ ⁠

May 17: Secrets of Spectacular Sweater Success⁠

May 18: The Long and The Short of it: Comparing Short Rows⁠

May 18: Advanced Knitting Fixes⁠

I guarantee, it’s going to be a spring weekend to remember!

Danube River Cruise: Christmas Market Knit Retreat 2025

This one is HUGE!! From Nov 29–Dec 6, 2025, you can take an amazing holiday knitting cruise from Nuremberg, Germany to Budapest, Hungary. (Yes, you read that right.) In addition to the knitting and crocheting experiences aboard the ship, you’ll stroll down cobblestone streets, venture through historic towns adorned with twinkling Christmas lights, and explore iconic Christmas markets. A truly once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the Christmas markets along the Danube. Incredible, right?

The Danube River Cruise is already 60% full, so make those reservations ASAP.

Take the plunge!

 

Virtual Vibes:

Can’t join our in-person shenanigans this spring? No problem! For those of you booked solid with weddings, graduations, outdoor parties, and the like, I’ve got some virtual events lined up just for you.

WEBS

From the comfort of your own home, you can join me for the WEBS Spring Virtual Knitting Retreat from April 18–21. With online classes, virtual trunk shows, and even daily hangouts with special guests, it’s the ultimate stay-at-home knitting extravaganza.

Live Class on Patty’s Education Platform – Knitting Magic

Join me on April 25th at 6:30 pm ET for an enchanting live class where we’ll discover the wonder of “magic” with two extraordinary techniques: Magic Loop and Judy’s Magic Cast On. We will learn how we can work circularly making any circumference without going to double pointed needles. You’ll be able to make sleeves, hats, socks or any small item in the round. Next we will explore the many uses of Judy’s magic cast on. Although many have heard of this cast on for a toe starter, did you also know it can be used for an amazing provisional cast on (keeping the stitches live) as well as the greatest tubular cast on ever! Come on, add a little magic to your knitting!

Modern Daily Knitting

Join me on May 10 for a virtual class with Modern Daily Knitting entitled “Patty’s Favorite Knitting Hacks.” I’ll give live demos and instructions so you can follow along at home. An overhead camera focused on my hands will give you a nice a bird’s-eye view of my favorite knitting hacks.

Three Kittens Needle Arts

And let’s not forget about the Build a Better Fabric Class hosted by Three Kittens Needle Arts on May 15. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just starting out, there’s something here for everyone. Plus, with limited spots available, you’ll want to snag yours before they’re gone!

 
Save the Date:

Vogue Knitting Retreat
Keep this on your radar, folks. Sept 21–24. Info coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled.

AffiKNITy 2025
Be sure to mark your calendars for this one and stay tuned for details. Trust me, you won’t want to miss it! WE are all set for: Apr 24–27, 2025.
