    • Marshfield, WI
    Join Meg Swansen at Knitting Camp in Marshfield, WI where you can fill your toolbox with valuable skills, and  have the opportunity to see iconic original knits by Elizabeth Zimmermann and Meg Swansen.  

    Meg covers updated details of Elizabeth Zimmermann's Percentage System (EPS) for circular, seamless garment construction plus color-patterns, steeks, and assorted techniques and tricks. There will be small project handouts from which to knit during the session, plus optional Show-and-Tell.  Attendees must have at least a basic knowledge of knitting (cast on, knit, purl, increase, decrease, cast-off) and preferably will have completed some garments. Bring your technique questions; camp is part-teaching/part-Q&A that stimulates conversation. We are prepared to converse about any or all techniques the group wishes to discuss. 

    At Knitting Camp, you can completely immerse yourself in knitting.  Sharing and learning from other campers helps forge lasting friendships bonded by cherished memories. Register early to ensure a seat at this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
