NEW CLASSES

FOR A NEW

SEASON

OF CRAFTING!

Double Knitting Workshop  (Advanced Level)
It’s double the fun! This is a colour knitting technique where a two-sided fabric is created.  A motif of two colours shows picture perfect on one side and equally as perfect but in colour-reverse on the other. Both sides are stockinette smooth! Learn this technique while making a beautiful scarf.  In one class you will have all the basics down and will be ready to finish this scarf and start new double knit projects.
1 session, $30, materials not included
Materials: 2 colours DK weight yarn and 3.75 mm needles
Wed May 23, 6:30-9pm

Needlepoint Workshop
(No Experience Necessary)

The craft of old fashion needlepoint for wall art and cushion covers is having a resurgence. Examples are showing up everywhere- contemporary and beautiful!  You can learn how to create your own needlepoint masterpiece in this workshop.  In this introductory class students will learn how to transfer a simple design onto a needlepoint canvas, how to select materials and read needlepoint charts, and how to make needlepoint stitches with good tension and a clean finish.
1 session, $30, materials not included
Materials: please ask us for details on materials upon registration
Mon Aug 20, 6:30-9pm

Cable Cowl (Intermediate Level)
Those snakey patterns that decorate traditional Irish-knit sweaters are called cables.  They are a great favorite with knitters for their twisty decorative ways that make extra warm knits.  You can learn how to decipher cabled patterns both written and charted and how to create these corkscrewed stitches in this workshop.  Make a pretty gorgeous cowl while you are at it!
1 session, $30, materials not included
Mon May 7, 6:30-9pm

Friendship Bracelet (No Experience Necessary)
You have friends! and you may make new ones if you have a stash of friendship bracelets at your disposal.  Relive your summer camp days or learn this fun craft for the first time. Shiny, colourful embroidery floss will egg you on to beautiful colour combinations.  Different pattern designs, such as diagonals, chevrons and diamonds will be demonstrated and practiced. What a great way to spend the afternoon! No experience necessary.  Children are welcome too.
1 session, $30, materials not included
Materials: several colours of embroidery floss
Sun May 27, 1-3:30pm

Baby Sweater (Intermediate Level)
Make a tiny sweater.  This is a great jumping off point for those who might be intimidated to embark on a full size adult sweater. Also- everything tiny is cute!  You can’t go wrong!  This sweater is constructed in a way that is common to many sweater patterns you might encounter in the future.  You will use the tools you learn in this class again and again.  Make a sweet raglan sleeve cardigan, follow a basic sweater pattern, learn shaping techniques, and how to pick up stitches too.
4 sessions, $96, materials not included
Mon July 2, 9, 16, 23, 7-9pm

Knitter’s Crash Course (Cowl Workshop) (No Experience Necessary)
Same fast and furious pace as our other Knitters Crash Course Scarf Workshop, but this time you knit in circles.  Make a cowl project, learn how to get your stitches on your needle (casting on) how to do the knit stitch, and how to finish your project (cast off).  This class is for total beginners, those who would like to learn how to use circular needles, or anyone who wants to make this fashionable knit accessory.
