Latest news and updates from June

learn amigurumi from me!

The Fall Creativ Festival is rapidly approaching… For anyone who may be in or around Toronto for the weekend of Oct 17-19, I recommend that you attend! It’s a vast show, with 200,000 square feet of shopping (fabrics, yarns, patterns, papers, jewellery supplies – you name it, you can find it there), learning about new tools and techniques, and the chance to meet creative and crafty industry experts.

PocketAmi Mouse and Bunny by planetjune

And as if this wasn’t enough of a draw, there are still some spaces left at my amigurumi class, starting at 11am on Saturday 18th. You can learn how to make the PocketAmi Mouse or Bunny shown above – even if you have never held a crochet hook before. This is a fun project for new crocheters or amigurumi beginners, and I will be there to help you through every step. If you are planning to attend the show, I recommend you sign up for your classes soon – the spaces are filling up fast!

On Saturday 18th, I will be at the A Needle Pulling Thread magazine booth (that’s booth #1005) all day, except when I’m teaching, so please remember to come and introduce yourself…

    Hi, I love the hearts patterns and can’t wait to try them! Thanks for the patterns! I am looking for patterns for goats, do you have any on your site? If not would you be interested in creating one? It could be with the hanging ears or up right ones, and with or with out horns. Or do you know of anyone else who has one on their site? Thanks

    Hi June,

    Do you have for sale the PocketAmi Mouse pattern?

    Love your tutorials and your Etsy shop. Thanks!

    I love the guinea pigs that you make and I would really like to learn to make one. I do not have any experience in crocheting, but I am wondering if you do private lessons? If so, please let me know. Also, if you could include your fee’s and an approximate amount of hours we would need, that would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you very much!

      Hi Ashley, I’m afraid I can’t help you: I moved to South Africa last year, so I’m not available for any face-to-face instruction! You might want to check out my book, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Amigurumi – that, in conjunction with the tutorials and videos I have available here on the site, would teach you everything you need to know.

    Do you have this pic in high resolution?

    • June said

      Yes, I do! May I ask what you’d like to use it for?

        My friend loves it! She used the pic for a wallpaper but it`s all blurry because of low resolution. I`ve would be very thankful if you could send me pic in high resolution. It would make one person very happy.

    Thanks for the news. I did not know about this festival and even if I won’t be able to make it to Toronto for the weekend, I know that some of my To-friends would be delighted to attend.
