Tuesday, February 11 7pm | Film Screening: On Gentle Threads

Join felting instructor Elise Kyllo for a screening and discussion of the film On Gentle Threads. This beautiful Hungarian documentary follows the phases of felt production from shearing to carding, dyeing to felting.


Wednesday, February 12 7pm | Skill Share: Steeking with Annie Albertson

Expand your knitting skills and gain design freedom by incorporating the traditional northern knitting technique of steeking into your projects. A steek is a “bridge” of extra stitches in a knitted piece that allows knitting in the round and later cut to accommodate a front opening, sleeve or neckline. You will learn the history of steeking, when and how to steek and get to try it out on a sample. You will go home with confidence to incorporate this traditional technique into your own work.


Thursday, February 13 7pm | Film Screening: Shepherdess of the Glaciers

Tsering is a shepherdess high in the mountains of Ladakh, India. Trace her footsteps across the snowy, isolated landscape in this beautifully shot and uniquely personal documentary of a woman and her flock on the other side of the world. North House is honored to welcome Linda Cortright, a friend of the film producer and Tsering the shepherdess to introduce this film and host a q&a following the screening. Bring your knitting or other handwork; we’ll leave (some) lights on.


Saturday, February 15 7pm | Presentation: 3 Years Weaving at Säterglätan Craft School

During the Fiber Week, North House will be hosting an exchange student from our sister school Dalarna, Sweden. Third year student Susanna Ayton will give a short presentation about her weaving study and her thoughts on weaving in modern Sweden.
