The Tip Jar

Do you sometimes see blobs of fuzz on your yarn? Before assuming it's a knot and cutting/rejoining it, try picking at the fluff. Sometimes yarns just gather a bit of fuzz inside the ball and all you have to do is pick it off and you'll find perfect yarn underneath.

Continental Knitting

Wednesday, January 23 & 30 from 6-8 pm, $33
Craft: Knitting
Teacher: Wendy

Learn to be a switch knitter! The Continental method of knitting requires less motion and is often considered a more efficient way to work. Ribbing becomes a breeze when you don’t have to make an extra motion to move the yarn from front to back!

Two 2-hour sessions

Beginning Tapestry Weaving

Saturday, January 26 from 10 am-4 pm, $48
Craft: Weaving
Teacher: Debbi

Remember how hard you worked to not beat your weft down too hard in rigid heddle or multi-shaft weaving? In this class you’ll be pressing the weft down so hard that the warp can’t be seen.

Tapestry weaving is a technique wherein you can draw pictures in your weaving. It is to weaving what intarsia is to knitting. Typically worked on a tapestry loom, it can be done on your rigid-heddle but you will need an extra tool to pack the weft down tightly enough. In this class, we’ll be learning the basic techniques of this style of weaving.

One 6-hour session
