Intro to Lace Knitting
Especially as the weather warms up, I find myself turning toward more open knitting patterns. Lace knitting is beautiful, and if you've been meaning to give it a try, now is the time! Nassira will teach Intro to Lace Knitting on Sunday, July 8.
Intro to Lace: 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. $50
Does the lace shawl you've knit looks like a bowl of ramen? Blocking is the last step in knitting or crochet, but what technique should you use? Nassira will teach a Blocking Workshop on Sunday, July 8.
Block Party: 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. $40 + $5 materials fee. Please bring a swatch no larger than 6" x 6" to block.
How many times have you looked at your knitting and said “what did I DO?” Do you put your projects in time-out because you don’t know how to fix them? This workshop will teach you how to read your knitting, figure out what’s going on, and fix it as efficiently as possible. Nassira will teach Fixing Mistakes on Sunday, July 22.
Fixing Mistakes: 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. $40 + $5 materials fee
Photographing Finished Objects
Your hand-made garment is finished, ends sewn in, blocked beautifully, and now you'd like to photograph it, for posterity or for Ravelry or whomever, but your only camera is your cell phone. In this class we'll learn how to take a good photo using the camera available. Mira Whiting will teach a workshop on Sunday, July 22
Photography: 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. $40
Please bring a finished object to photograph.

Knitting with Beads
Make your knitting sparkle! Learn the two major techniques for adding beads to your knitted projects and bring on the bling! (Requires basic lace-knitting knowledge, i.e. how to work with yarn overs and decreases; chart-reading is very helpful but not necessary. If you’re interested in this class but don’t have prior lace experience, consider taking the Chart Reading and Lace Knitting workshops earlier in the summer.) Nassira teaches Knitting with Beads on Sunday, August 5
Knitting with Beads: 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. $50 + $5 materials fee
