I was looking at mags at the library and came across an article within the Cast On mag about master knitter correspondence courses for three level tiers of knitting.
The article stated that there was a base fee of $90 for beginner courses but I wonder if anyone had completed the course and what would the subsequent fees would be? For example does the company provide materials or do I need to purchase specific yarns? Could I cheap out and buy worsted weight acrylic yarn? (I have a large stash of it)

I can't remember how that works. I looked into it years ago when I subscribed to the magazine. Hopefully someone else will know and can tell us.

I have been on the broken arm path and would never like to visit it again. The information I saw stated that the basic course for knitting was $90. I hope I was not reading that wrong.

Nope, that's what I got, too.

How exactly does the Webbs program run? How specific are the rules? Do you earn the title Master Knitter?

I just went to the yarn.com site and checked out all the specifics on these classes. Something more to think about!
Thanks

I will earn the title of Expert Knitter when I have completed the entire program. It's a do at your own pace. So everyone is different. I'm loving the classes. Even the ones you'd think you don't feel you need, you learn something new. The teachers are great and I was surprised how many others are in the Expert Knitter program. Not everyone who takes a class is looking to be an Expert, but we have fun!

The Master Knitter course is a detailed program in three levels that you work on your own. When you complete a level, it is compiled in a binder with swatches and documentation. It is sent to The Knitting Guild Association committee for evaluation. When Level 1 is complete and passed you can go on to Level 2 and so on. You can take as long as you need to finish a level and there is no extra charge per year.
