Guido Stein - guido at guidostein.com - Guido on Ravelry - @guidos on twitter

Who I am:

I am that guy who ran the spinning class with Janet and Suzanne and the social media panel with @modeknit.

Endorsement:

"I loved going to FiberCamp and spending so much time with all the amazing fiber folks in the Boston area. I was very happy to learn how to crochet a granny square. I am also happy that I could get more people excited about using a drop spindle. I can't wait to do it again in 2011 or perhaps in NH."

 

Rachel Gogan - rachel.gogan at yahoo (dot) com - Caitirin on Ravelry - @caitirin on twitter - Caitirin on LiveJournal

Who I am:

I am the one who ran the amigurumi class.  One of the two crocheters (though I'm bi-craftual) from New Hampshire.  The handout I gave out is linked here via Google docs.  Feel free to share around.

Endorsement:

"I had a BLAST at Fiber Camp.  I was psyched to learn drop spindle spinning and I would have been totally thrilled if I'd learned only that.  But I learned SO MUCH MORE!  I can't wait for the next Fiber Camp!"

 

Liz Sachs - liz.gifford at gmail (dot) com - blacktabi on Ravelry - @blacktabi on twitter

Who I am:

I taught Blogging for Beginners (blog students - I'll have the tutorials up on the wiki in a few days after I've recovered from camp!).  I also participated in the Master Knitter panel, two-stranded knitting with one hand, intarsia techniques, the Frog Pond, continental knitting and Sunday's spinning for beginners.  You might know me better as the person with the striped mini mochi sock project that I dragged around all weekend!

Endorsement:

"I am never knitting anything but Continental again.  I also can't wait to try out intarsia on...something. I never knew there were such fun and interesting techniques!  I haven't yet decided whether learning drop spinning was a good thing or a curse... ;) " 

 

Katy Love - taerowyn at gmail (dot) com - taerowyn on Ravelry - @ktlove on twitter

Who I am:

I taught Entrelac and backwards knitting (for those in the session, be sure to check out the session page for updated info). Convenitently, I was knitting some Noro entrelac most of the weekend, if you're IDing by projects.

Endorsement:

"An amazing weekend. I feel I've practically doubled my skill set. The only problem now is that I want to take a month off of work to revel in all the great things I've learned "

 

Aaron Clark - aclark8997 at gmail dot com - needlesandballs.wordpress.com - aclark on Ravelry - @needlesnballs on twitter

Who I am:

I taught the Strong Heel in the first session. If you attended (or even if you didn't), the session page has the handout...it was great to have so many people that I ran out! I was the guy in the grey knit English-style driving cap.

Endorsement:

"So much fun!! I was very sad that I couldn't be there Sunday as you guys were all so much fun to hang out with. I loved learning how to spin with my new drop spindle. I also finally learned how to crochet after many failed attempts. The double-knitting workshop was amazing...Alisdair does such amazing work! Still not sure what 'Going Commando' refers to when spinning, and not sure I want ot know, but I'll have fun spanking my yarn. I can't wait for the next one!!"

 

Alanna Nelson- ciaobella on ravelry - tactilet at mac (dot)com - @Tactile_Travel and @AlannaN on twitter

Who I am:

Helped lead the Master knitter and Intro to Lace session.  Loved my time in amigurumi and learning backward knitting made entrelac a project I would actually consider again.  And I shall only create fitted knitwear after Deb's approach to darts.  I loved getting to know so many new folks and spending time with old crafty friends.  Helped organize the before, during and after of FiberCamp (will post the Post FiberCamp press release soon)

Endorsement:

"I wasn't sure exactly what would happen at FiberCamp, but the energy and enthusiasm of FiberCampers was really inspiring and contagious. I had a great time."

 

Beth Katcher - b-dot-katcher-at-rcn-dot-com; bjk9 on Ravelry

Who I am:

Helped with the Intro to Lace on Sunday (had the Orenburg-ish shawl with the moth hole -- now repaired!); wore the Kaffe Fassett sweater on Saturday

Endorsement:

There were so many interesting courses, I need another Fiber Camp to get to all the workshops I missed! Highlights included finally getting a handle on knitting backwards (from the entrelac class, THANK YOU, KATY!), continental knitting (next project, I promise), and of course spinning. Just hanging around with like-minded people and getting personalized service from the vendors was worth the entrance fee. Thank you, to all of you who made this such a great success.

 

Deborah Neisel-Sanders - honeybee33 at mac dot comhoneybee33 on Ravelry; @honeybee33 on Twitter; blogging at web.mac.com/honeybee33

Who I am:

I taught the "Special Intarsia Techniques" class and the "Customizing Fit + Bust-Darts" class.  I also shared an incredibly painful legwarmer-frog with my understanding friends in the Frog Pond.

Endorsement:

It was truly wonderful to be able to learn from friends (both known and newly met) in this casual venue - what I took away was worth well over three times what I paid.  As a longtime knitter (but not a teacher), I also loved being able to share some of the arcane knitting-knowledge that I've gathered over the decades in a space that accommodated my lack of professional teaching experience.  I think we ALL benefit when we acknowledge that learning and teaching can come from nontraditional places!

 

Gale Zucker - galeATgzuckerDOTcom  SheShootsSheep on Ravelery, blogging at She Shoots Sheep Shots

Who I Am:

I taught "Photographing FO's on Real People Models" on Saturday, and organzied the Yarn Tasting Swap, later that day.  I wore a chunky burgundy handdyed Frances Revisited and had a biggish camera with me, so that's a dead giveaway.

Endorsement:

I can't say enough good things about Fiber Camp. Way to GO, Common Cod!! Loved the space, the classes I took, the people who took mine, the wonderful inspirations I picked up from hanging around blabbing. I was most impressed how the whole unconfernce thing worked so splendidly. I was only there for Saturday, would have gladly been back Sunday had I been able.

 

Suzanne Elsasser - selsasser [at] comcast [dot] net, doublehelix on Ravelry, quiescent blog at doublehelix.typepad.com

Who I am:

I helped Guido with the drop spinning class, then continued on in the auditorium for an impromptu session on plying. I also turned up at the frog pong with my niddy noddies. 

Endorsement:

I was only able to make Saturday afternoon, hemmed in as I was by my other passions. Next year I will clear the decks and make the whole thing, as I clearly missed a whole lot! Being a bit of a control freak, I was really impressed by the way the unconference came together.

 

Susan Eiseman Levitin - slevitinart [at] msn [dot] com, paintermom on Ravelry

Who I am:

     I taught the Crochet for Beginners class.  I took the mini-sessions about socks, two-colors in one hand stranded knitting, photography, entrelac, cabling      without a cable needle and double knitting.

Endorsement:

     I had a BLAST!  I learned so many new things that I am surprised my head didn't explode.  The people were lovely and the facility really enhanced the      experience.  I loved teaching a session and helping several people who had previously struggled with crochet reach the "aha!" moment when it made sense.

 

Tanya Hakala - tfhakala at unh (dot) edu - Hak42 on Ravelry - @hak42 on twitter - Hak42 on LiveJournal

Who I am:

I'm one of the crocheters from NH. I helped out with the Amigurumi class and the Granny Square class. 

Endorsement:

"I had an awesome time at Fiber Camp. It was great to share knowledge with other fiber enthusiasts! Can't wait for next year!"

 

Gudrun Thomassen- GudrunThomassen on Ravelry.

Who I am:

      I attended a bunch of classes, Crochet for Beginner, Intro to Drop Spinning, the followup Plying and Spanking your Yarn, Double Knitting Intro, Easier Socks with the Strong Heel, and Intuitive Sock Heels. I was wearing my modified  Ganomy hat for most of Sunday. I'm also one of the Sci-Fi fans who showed up.

 

Endorsement:

     I didn't teach, but I did have a great time! I really enjoyed all the classes I attended!

 

Melinda Flood  -- mff100 on Ravelry

Who I am:

    I'm the one who was running around singing "I'VE FINALLY LEARNED TO CROCHET!!!"   Oh, and I also learned something about continental knitting, drop spinning, making cables without a needle, and many many other things.

 

Endorsement:

     Fiber Camp was a truly wonderful way to spend a winter weekend -- I learned so much in such a short time.  Sign me up for next year!!

Who I am: aliasknitter on Ravelry. Didn't teach but I enjoyed asking lots of questions -- on Saturday at Blogging for Beginners, Photographing your FOs (where I whipped out my Norwegian mittens) and Double Knitting, and on Sunday at the Customizing Sweaters to Fit You --where I wore a *very* boxy orange sweater. I also did some Yarn Tasting, and whacked a big bad mitten in the Frog Pond, with the help of Suzanne(?)'s a niddy-noddy in the process.

Endorsement:
It was great to learn so much from such a friendly crowd. I really appreciated the excellent job done by the presenters, and I also learned much from other people's questions, conversations, and beautiful WIPs and FOs. I'm already looking forward to the next one!
