Fibre Space Classes
This weekend on Saturday the 28th I’ll be at Fibre Space in Old Town Alexandria, VA to be teaching two different classes:
Ooops: Fixing Mistakes: If the sight of a dropped stitch, a mixed up cable, or a problem in your lace sends you scrambling for the LYS, this class if for you. Learn to fix your mistakes!
Hairpin Lace Scarf: This highlights a fun riff on Hairpin Lace by making a quick project that will teach you the basics of this stunning technique!
I also am trying out something a little new: I’m scheduling a few Private Lessons for students that miss the one-on-one attention or would like to discuss a topic outside of my normal class offerings! I’d love to meet with you then!
Dances With Wool Classes
I’ve also been fostering a new relationship with Dances With Wool, in Midlothian, VA, just outside of Richmond. I’ve got a number of classes coming up with them.
Sugar Maple Hat is a great class for learning how to work in the round, working cables, and reading a knitting pattern with cables. The class will run February 1, 8th and 15th.
If you want to learn how to work socks, this next class is for you. Toe-up socks: Time Traveler covers how to cast on for a toe-up sock, how to work a riverbed heel, a primer on intermediate lace (just enough to keep your interest!), and a folded over brim. Classes are spaced out so that students have the time to work on the pattern before getting to the next place. Dates are February 22, March 8th and March 22!
I’ve also got a new sort of class that I’m running at DWW, called Stitch Adventure. Got a project that you want to work but want a bit of handholding along the way? Need help on choosing yarns or tackling a new skill? Want to be held accountable to get those projects done? This is the type of class for you! And this week, we’re running a sale of the class – 25% off. Signup here!
Classes at the Ashland Library
And now, finally one last opportunity I want to call your way. If you live in Ashland, VA, I’ll be teaching a Beginning Knitting and Beginning Crochet class this month. Volunteering and making needlework accessible to everyone is an important cornerstone of my personal values. At the same time, I don’t often give my instruction away for free, as it’s one of my primary methods of income. Still, sometimes I feel it is important to give back to my community.
Thus, I’ll be teaching two different events at the Ashland Library this month:
Beginning Knitting Workshop
Wednesday, February 1, Noon – 1:00 p.m.
Jennifer Raymond, owner of Tinking Turtle Designs will show you how to get started with your first knitting project. No experience necessary. Supplies provided. Call or visit the library to sign up.
Beginning Crochet Workshop
Wednesday, February 15, Noon – 1:00 p.m.
Jennifer Raymond, owner of Tinking Turtle Designs will show you how to get started with your first crochet project. No experience necessary. Supplies provided. Call or visit the library to sign up.
