Seminars and Events
Purls of Joy
April 29 & 30, 2016

It’s that time of year again. Yes, the “Purls Of Joy” Seminar will soon be here. Preparations are starting. The Upper Midwest
Knitting Machine Dealers will be working very hard to put on another outstanding seminar for you. This will be our 32nd year.

We will be holding it at Trinity Crossing, 112 6th Ave N. Princeton, MN.

We hope you will be able to attend again this year.  

Our guest demonstrator:
Jan Richards. Jan is from Australia and has been so kind as to spend a part of her stay here in the
States demonstrating for us at Purls Of Joy. Jan, like a lot of knitters started out hand knitting and then went to machine
knitting. Jan has lectured nationally and internationally for well over 20 years and ran a knitting club in her home for 20 years.
Jan will be demonstrating Sideways Knitting, measurements required, pattern matching, pocket, bands and much more. What
Jan teaches can be for the beginner to the more experienced knitters.

We will be doing things a little different this year. We will have Jan teaching in the BIG Hall of Trinity Crossing so everyone can
see, hear, an enjoy everything she does. We may be having 1 other classroom with our own Dealer Demonstrators teaching.
This way if you want to enjoy something else for an hour or so you can. The reason for this is our own dealers would also like
to sit in on what Jan is doing.

Don’t forget our “Style Show” on Friday night at the banquet. Those of you that participate in the Style Show will be entered
into our drawing for a $50.00 gift Certificate.

We will have a drawing at our noon lunch on Saturday. The Grand Prize will be a “Free” seminar package (excluding hotel) for
