Knit Stars is a 3-week, all-online, global learning event that takes place this November...and we'd love for you to join us!
You'll be transported behind the scenes to the Stars' own private studios, workspaces and farms, to learn what inspires their designs and drives their passion. Then you'll learn from them in a series of 10 step-by-step workshops that will take your knitting and crochet to the next level. And the best part? You own them, so you can learn at your own pace - pausing, rewinding and fast-forwarding as needed until you really lock in the learning! So it's ideal for all levels.
This year, we're taking you up 15,000+ feet into the mountains of Peru, for a peek inside the world's largest alpaca farm, where they're working with local, indigenous breeders to increase fiber quality and sustainability. You'll also virtually "visit" Manos del Uruguay, the nonprofit co-op based fiber company that's helping the women of the region create better lives for their families.
And you'll crisscross North America, from Nova Scotia to Oregon, as you learn from our amazing team of Superstars...each teaching what they know best, with a special emphasis on sustainability...

"A huge thank-you to Shelley and the organisers of Knit Stars. You have changed my life! A whole new world of inspiration has opened up for me! It has been well worth every cent. Thank you so much!"
"As somebody who just started knitting not even three years ago, I can't even tell you how invigorating it's been to learn skills that I thought I wasn't ready for! And for those of us who, like me, as a teacher, can't afford to go on those wonderful global knitting adventures right now...to get to hear and see these Stars, and feel like I'm right there with them, from the luxury of my own home...I just love it! You should definitely try it if you haven't already because it is THE BOMB DOT COM!"
"I've been knitting for 30 years. Even though I 'think' I know everything, I have learned so much more with every class. It's made me a better knitter and given me the confidence to design and sell patterns. I am also teaching classes at my LYS. For me, it was all about getting better at my craft which I love so very much!"
"Once again, Knit Stars has hit it out of the park! I'm a proud member of all three Knit Stars and each one has gotten better and better! Thank you for encouraging us, helping us grow, feeding our souls as well as our skills. Thank you so much and when can I sign up for 4.0?"
"I was astonished. Where else could I get lessons from creative geniuses all over the world? I can't even get a one-way ticket to Colorado for what it cost. Do it! You'll be glad."
"Worth every penny. I have been knitting since 1965 and have learned new things from every single presenter."
"I just want to send a huge THANK-YOU to Shelley and the Knit Stars team for a job well done! I enjoyed every single teacher and will be reaping the benefits of their instruction for years to come! I think I could sum up my personal experience with this Knit Stars as 'Inspired and Empowered'! I think one of the signs of a good instructor is taking your through steps in a clear and concise way, so you feel confident in embarking on something new. Each of the teachers did that for me. Knit Stars (all of them!) has been an integral part of my growth and evolution as a knitter and I can't thank you enough for all the hard work you've done and for creating this new, innovative way of bringing the worldwide knitting community together!""
