Sept 11 (Sat, 9-4)
In this workshop, we’ll explore a plethora of techniques to mend and modify knits—both handknits and commercially produced knits. Got holes? We’ll learn how to fix them by darning or creating a knitted patch. Stains? We’ll explore a duplicate stitch to cover them, a technique that’s also useful for reinforcing and embellishing. Shortening and lengthening the sleeves and bodies of sweaters, modify collars, and even add afterthought pockets to knits, will be covered too. Finally, we’ll install zippers in knit fabric—with perfect tension and NO SEWING! Get ready to see the endless possibilities of knitwear—both your beloved handknits and store-bought items.
Skills Level: Advanced beginner. Students should be able to pick up stitches
in our store, including our floor looms.
We were very disappointed to have to cancel all of our workshops in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We are hopeful that in 2021 we can begin the road back to our normal series. To that end this year, we are offering fewer work- shops, with fewer students per workshop and limiting the number of people who can stay in our Boarding House. We will be strictly observing all Covid protocols to ensure your safety and the safety of our teachers and staff. We don’t know at this point if masks will still be required, but if they are, we will have plenty of masks available. There will also be lots of hand sanitizer and disinfec- tant sprays. We are hopeful that our classes will take place, and we look forward to seeing you. Stay safe!
