I have had the pleasure of sitting next to Maggie Jackson at a dinner party in Seattle. What an amazing, and FUN, Lady. I was sent the following information from a member of the Ann Arbor fiberarts guild - and it is just too good not to share!

Irish Knitting Wearables workshop – in Ann Arbor Oct. 12-13

Maggie Jackson, internationally known designer from Ireland, will teach two workshops featuring her signature stitches and texture techniques for knitters to use in creating their own wearable art,  October 12-13, sponsored by the Ann Arbor Fiberarts Guild.  The workshops are now open to non-members of AAFG and will be held at the Washtenaw Community College, Ypsilanti. Examples of Jackson’s wearable art are on her website.  Just look for Maggie Jackson wearable Irish knits.  

The fee for the workshops  is $210 payable on  registration.  The workshop registration form is on the AAFG website in the October newsletter.(A $40 material fee will be collected at the class.) Workshop questions? Contact

Maggie Jackson’s wearables collection will be shown at the AAFG Guild meeting on Monday night, October 14.  Meeting starts at 6:30pm.  Non-members are welcome and will pay a $10 fee for this fashion show. AAFG meets at Zion Lutheran Church, 1501 W. Liberty St, between 7th and Stadium, Ann Arbor, MI.
