The Tip Jar

Knitters: If you're doing a pattern with short rows, but all in garter stitch? Good news! You don't have to pick up the wraps because they won't show! This is why the wrap & turn short rows are the best for garter stitch.
(example patterns: Garter Stitch Baby Hat, Garter Stitch Mitts, Garter Stripe Table Mat, Color Affection Shawl)


Knitting: Top Tank Top

Wednesday, April 17, 24, and May 1 from 6-8 pm, $48
Craft: Knit
Teacher: Wendy

Use the Top Down Method to work a perfectly fitting sleeveless top. You can make it fitted and sexy or loose and flowy - whatever makes you feel ready to beat the summer heat! Also makes a great layering piece for our mild San Antonio winters.

Learn the basics of weaving on a rigid heddle loom. We’ll cover weaving terminology, direct warping, winding and managing shuttles, achieving a balanced weave and basic finishing techniques.

Weaving: Finishing Techniques

Saturday, April 27 from 10 am-noon, $18
Craft: Weaving
Teacher: Debbi

Now that you’ve woven a perfect piece, how do you finish it? In this class, you’ll learn to take your piece off the loom and finish it in a variety of ways including twisting fringe and braiding fringe (3- and 4-strand braiding). You’ll also learn wet-finishing techniques to give your weaving a perfect finished hand and drape.

One 2-hour session

Weaving: Lace

Saturday, April 27 from 1-5 pm, $18
Craft: Weaving
Teacher: Debbi

Are you tired of plain weave? Although plain-weave can be very interesting, your rigid-heddle loom is capable of many other weave structures. One of the nicest, yet easiest to achieve is a simple lace weave. We’ll get you started weaving a lace scarf in this class.

One 4-hour session
