Baaad Resolutions!

January 8, 2017

Happy new years! With this wintery welcome to 2017, how many of you have put forward some new years resolutions? Do they include cleaning up your knits, figuring out your to-knit list, or busting through your stash?

Well if you want to figure out some new techniques, we have a great learning series for you: Holli Yeoh‘s Fine Finishing Techniques!

We’re putting together a series of workshops that cover the ins and outs of transforming your projects from ‘home made’ to ‘hand knit.’ You’ve spent all that time knitting a beautiful garment, now don’t skimp on the finishing. You’ll learn finishing techniques that rival commercially made garments and you’ll have the confidence to tackle sweater projects.

Part III:  Fine Finishings – Seaming

Make sure to give your knitting the attention it deserves when seaming your garments. You’ll have a chance to try your hand at mattress stitch on both stocking stitch and garter stitch as well as false grafting. We’ll discuss the merits of reinforced seams and cover other seaming techniques as time permits.

DATE: Sun,  Jan 22st from 2:30-4:30pm

COST: $45 for the one class OR $110 for the series
