Next Level Knitting Conference 2024: Frequently Asked Questions
The Next Level Knitting Conference (NLKC) is our virtual conference with something for all knitters to take their knitting to the next level. This year there will be more than 32 classes, 3 panel discussions, two special evening events, prizes, and lots of knitting fun. We will do three time slots on Friday and Saturday and then two on Sunday. There will be three or four different sessions in each time slot. And if you can’t watch something live, you have six months to watch all the sessions once or as many times as you like.

Yes. Just be sure to log in to the platform by May 2nd.
We use a virtual event platform called Brella. You need a computer, laptop, or tablet to connect to Brella. (While you can do this on a phone, the video feeds would be very small and hard to see.) Brella does have an app, but in past years it has had some limitations on past content so we recommend using a web browser instead. Good internet signal is also important. The detailed instructions which will go out on April 14 will go through this in detail.
We will send out the link to join the Brella platform by April 14th. It will include a short video that will orient you to the platform. It is a good idea to log in before the conference starts and we will remind you to be sure to log in by May 2nd.
We are all here because we love knitting and want to learn from each other. We expect that all participants will treat each other with kindness and respect. This is not a place for divisiveness, politics, or rudeness. TKGA reserves the right to remove anyone from the event (without a refund) if he/she/they violate this policy. By logging on, you agree to be good to yourself and good to others.
Members early bird pricing is $125 and will be open from January 19, 2024 through March 31, 2024.
From April 1 to April 17, the pricing will be $175. We will have pricing for non-members as well.

Absolutely. Our website uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt your personal information when you place your order. This means your order cannot be read as it travels over the Internet, so your name, address, and credit card information are secure.
You will type your questions into the Brella platform chat function. A facilitator will read the question to the instructor.
We do an open call for teachers. This year, we made a list from last year’s feedback for the most requested topics. If a topic was raised by 10 different people, it will be in this year’s conference.
With over 70 applications to teach, it is not easy to select the classes. We try to select a good mix of different topics – general knowledge, finishing, stitches and techniques, design, etc.. After that it is a big game of Tetris to match teachers, topics, and schedule.
We would love to talk to you about knitting related swag that could be prizes. Contact us at email@example.com.
The sessions are 90 minutes long.
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.
