Knit Camp

I am writing this post to express my sincere apologies to anyone who is booked onto any of my classes at Knit Camp, Stirling in August. Unfortunately, despite my best efforts to resolve several issues with the organisers this was not to be and I have therefore been left with no alternative but to withdraw from the event. Again I cannot apologise enough, and the thought of having to take the action I have has made me physically ill, however with no contract and various other issues I felt I had to take the decision that I did.

I have spoken to some participants on ravelry and I hope this message reaches other students. I sincerely hope that everyone attending Knit Camp has a wonderful time and hope to meet some of you in the future. The demand for vintage themed knitting workshops weekends seems to be building so maybe that is the way forward.

I don't know what else to say. I feel absolutely terrible about this but you just have to do what is right.

For now
Ruby xx

You are not alone in your decision. I've seen several similar announcements over the last month. I think as with all things you shouldn't tie yourself in knots over something once you make a decision. You have to do what is right for you. I'm not attending the Camp, but I hope that those who are will still enjoy the event,as I think it is impossible not to when knitters get together.

Oh no, that's such a shame! If it's any consolation, I think everyone will understand, as there have been so many tutors pull out for similar reasons. See you at Knit Nation!

I hope that you're not too seriously ill and bounce back soon :(

We were talking about you last night (all good things) at our local knitting group so thought I'd just drop you a message and let you know. I think they were making your love heart socks :)

Please dont feel unhappy about doing what you believe to be the right thing. You have to be able to live with yourself and follow your conscience. I'm sure you did all you could to resolve the issues.

I am sure that is the best thing for you, I don't know the reason but move on and feel strong in what you have decided!
I hope all is well, Linda x

You are not alone...I believe Ysolda Teague withdrew from Knit Camp as well.
