Meg Swansen & Amy Detjen: Elizabeth’s Percentage System (EPS)
EPS is Elizabeth Zimmermann’s percentage method of constructing a custom-fitted garment, either a seamless yoke style or a Scandinavian dropped-shoulder sweater. We will mentally knit our way through one or two sweaters, demonstrating techniques as we bump into them.
Meg Swansen is the daughter of British-born designer/writer Elizabeth Zimmermann. She and Elizabeth began to work together in 1965 to run their knitting-supply/publishing business, Schoolhouse Press, which has published 30 knitting books to date. Though Elizabeth died in 1999, Meg’s designs and articles continue to appear in magazines, including a regular column in Vogue Knitting. She has written five books, produced 16 instructional DVDs, publishes the Wool Gathering newsletter, and runs four weeks of the very famous Knitting Camp annually. Meg lives with her cats in an old schoolhouse in central Wisconsin.
Amy was the “List Mom” of the original Knit List for over four years, then started KnitU. She’s very proud that she’s been Meg Swansen’s assistant at Meg’s Knitting Camp for over 15 years. Teaching knitting and helping people learn about their knitting options is something Amy is passionate about; she loves helping people solve problems.

Sharon Silverman – More Techniques in Tunisian Crochet
Ready to take your Tunisian crochet skills to the next level? Join Sharon Silverman for this lively and informative class. You’ll practice new stitch patterns, do colorwork, learn how to shape Tunisian garments, and try out Tunisian in the round. By the end of class, you will be able to understand any Tunisian pattern (as long as it’s decently written!) and design Tunisian items on your own.
This 3-hour class begins with a brief review of Tunisian crochet basics. Next, students learn and practice more complex stitch patterns (including frosted stitch, clusters, X-stitch, Tunisian double crochet, color changes, and lacy stitches) and work on different ways to shape garments in Tunisian crochet. The class concludes with an introduction to Tunisian crochet in the round.
