Build your own
Pick a technique or project and some friends who want to join you in a learning adventure. I will tailor the class(es) to your interests and schedule. We can gather at the store or in someone’s home. Endless possibilities! For example a learn to knit or crochet gathering. Your group will most likely need two or three 2-hour sessions to learn and be comfortable with the basics of either knitting or crochet.
Looking ahead to summer, I’ll be offering a KAL-type class on a shawl made with Bamboo Pop, a great cotton & bamboo summer yarn of cotton. Lots of colors. Simple Intarsia technique. Great/colorful results.
