Next Level Knitting Conference: Frequently Asked Questions
How does this conference differ from an in person conference?
- In the past for our conferences, we would have three to four class blocks and there would be three classes taught in each block – and they focused on Master Hand Knitting Certificate. Participants could choose which one they wanted to go to; it didn’t have to be the level they happened to be working on, just what they were interested in. But they could only go to one, because you can’t be in more than one place at a time.
- With the Next Level Knitting Conference, we will still be offering three or four classes at a time, but they will cover topics that are of interest to all knitters. You will have to select which one you want to go to live. But the beauty of the virtual conference is that within an hour after a live session ends, the recording of it will be posted on the conference platform. You could go to the live session on ‘Stitch Anatomy’, and then the next day view the recording of ‘Sock Heels’.
- This means that you can eventually participate in all of the learning opportunities.
How do I decide what I should go to live?
- That is completely up to you, but we’d recommend you go to the session that you think you would want to ask questions on the most. You will be able to ask questions in the live sessions. When you listen and view a class later, you will only hear the answers to other’s questions.
How long will I have to review the classes?
- The conference platform will be available for six months after the conference ends.
Can I watch the sessions multiple times?
- Absolutely! With the 2021 conference, we were still seeing people view 200 sessions a month.
Will I get handouts for all classes?
- Yes, you will get them electronically. You will have to print them yourself.
Is there homework for the event?
- Yes, depending on the sessions you want to attend. The homework list will be published by February 1.
I’m not in the Masters Program. Can I still attend?
- Yes, we have worked hard to make sure there are classes of interest to knitters of all skill level and also we have a lot of design classes..
What type of device will work?
- You can use a desktop computer, a laptop, a tablet or a smartphone. We would not recommend a smartphone because the picture will be very small – though many of the bugs on the smartphone app from last year have been fixed.
How do I log in to the event?
- You will receive an email with your unique ‘Join Code’ for Brella, our platform for the event, b April 18.
- We strongly recommend that you log in and set up your profile and networking availability in Brella several days before the event. In fact you will have to log in by May 5th to get access.
