SoXperience 2017 will be on the beautiful Chincoteague Island, VA, the perfect location to do some serious knitting and then take breaks to enjoy the local scenery, and events the Island has to offer. Time has been allotted in the weekend for you to take advantage of the Assateague Wildlife Preserve (catch a glimpse of the legendary Chincoteague ponies) and the weekend wouldn't be complete without a visit to the Carodan Farm Wool Shop.

Nancy.jpgOur presenter for this years' SoXperience is Nancy Shroyer of Carey NC. Nancy knits, spins, weaves, dyes, designs, teaches and invents at her business, Nancy's Knit Knacks. Besides inventing tools for knitters and spinners, Nancy has published two books and over 30 patterns. the number one thing she likes to do is teach and she has found many shortcuts, techniques and formulas that knitters time and anxiety.

She will be sharing her knowledge of fair isle design and techniques for socks this weekend. Design your own individual adult sized sock and in the process you will learn how to fit the patterns together, chart it and then learn all the techniques to make a sock as they did in Fair Isle Scotland.

A complete description of the weekend workshops can be found here: Fair Isle Workshop

SoXperience will be held in the conference room of the Hampton Inn & Suites on Chincoteague Island. The conference room is spacious and ideal for workshop presentations.
