NYS Sheep & Wool Festival - Workshop Registration

Laura Nelkin

Laura Nelkin lives in upstate New York, where the sunny season is short, leaving plenty of time to be indoors knitting. Though she has a degree in apparel design, she took to knitting many years ago and hasn't looked back since. Laura is currently enamored with lace, and with incorporating beads into knitted jewelry, so most of her designs lean in this direction. She travels often to teach these techniques and more at workshops around the country and on-lne with Her designs have been featured in a number of publications, including Interweave,, Schaefer Yarn Co. and Creative Knitting. Laura is currently working on a book with Potter Craft that is due out in Fall of 2014!

Follow Laura and her design exploits on her blog, and see more of her designs at her website.
