Judith Shangold, Weave Knit Wear book signing
Save the date: Saturday, October 15, 2016.
Come meet Judith Shangold – knitwear designer, weaver and author of Weave • Knit • Wear.
Judith will bring sample garments from her book, all woven with knitting yarns on a rigid-heddle loom. Her garments are made with rectangles and involve very little cutting and sewing. She will demonstrate weaving on a Cricket loom, and show you how she uses knitting for collars, buttonbands, gussets and sleeves. More information . . .
Crochet is incredibly versatile! Make anything from a potholder to a bedspread, cowl, poncho or basket. Whether you’re a beginner or would like to get reacquainted with crochet, this is the class for you. We’ll start with granny squares, basic crochet stitches and then get you started on your first project. Students will receive attention to their individual needs and goals.
About the teacher: Laurel Miller has been stitching from childhood and taught crochet, needlepoint and quilting for years at Newton Adult Ed. She brings her enthusiasm for crochet, knitting and fiber fun to Creative Warehouse, working there on Fridays and every other Saturday. See her work on Ravelry as “skippedastitch”.
Mondays, 7-9 PM November 7, 14, 28 & December 12
