Bio: Robbie Laughlin is a local knitwear designer and instructor, who has worked with yarn companies, magazines, and a few clothing companies. He has just published his first book, Architexture: Shape and Surface, and has been featured in Rib Magazine. His approach to design is to think outside the book, and break rules just for the fun of it!

Description: Have you ever wondered how to start in knitwear design? Join Robbie Laughlin for a 3 hour class on writing and publishing your own patterns. Robbie is excited to show you how to develop a creative process for designing a pattern, ways to easily write what you knit while you knit it and how to turn these ideas into a product that knitters want.

In this class you’ll also learn which tools are commonly used to help knitwear designers write patterns! Explore the ways that you can use scales, inexpensive charting software, spreadsheets and word processors to help you make a professional looking pattern. The final portion will show you how to take great photos without a studio or expensive gear. You’ll also get the inside scoop on what it takes to create a book from start to finish!

Please bring any swatches, samples, or ideas that you have, so we can discuss ways to improve them and market them in a group setting!
