Learn to Knit Cables

Knitters, are you ready to go beyond stockinette and garter stitch patterns? If you’ve taken any beginner knitting class, then you are ready to knit cables. Students must know how to cast on, knit and purl. Topics to be covered include, but not limited to: gauge, reading patterns and charts, knitting terms and tools. Learn to combine knits and purls to create beautiful braids that can be added to your knitting playbook. Kits available on request, email me by Sept. 6.

Intro to Quilt Piecing


In this course you will learn the elements of fabric, how to understand color choices, more precise piecing and how to save time piecing your quilt. There will not be a finished object at the end of the class but each week’s block can be used as part of a larger quilt, wallhanging, table runner, placemats, tote bags and more. Students will practice piecing skills with six traditional quilt blocks. Once you finish this course, you will be able to cut fabric more accurately, improve seam al- lowances and perfect your piecing skills.
