Lansing Guild Meeting

Monday, November 14th, 2005

Tuesday, November 15, we will have a Mid-Michigan Knitting Guild meeting. It is at the University Lutheran church on Harrison Road not far from Trowbridge, between the United Methodist church and the Islamic Center. We meet in the basement social hall.

Meeting starts at 7pm (ends 9pm) but folks roll in before that and sit and knit. The snacks are always artful and tasty, and the company is grand. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never been there, you’ll be welcomed warmly if you just say hello. We are all re-learning one another’s names frequently ourselves.

Please consider a visit if you are within driving distance. We’d love to have you join us.

Upcoming Big Weekend at Threadbear

Monday, November 14th, 2005

polymer clayThis upcoming weekend is a big one for me. I’m teaching my two most popular classes at Threadbear Fiberarts in Lansing, Michigan.

polymer claySaturday 11/19 will be Polymer Clay for Fiber Folk… mostly Buttons and Beads, but I’m not limiting the ideas at that. There is no way to have a bad polymer clay class… people can do wonderful things the very first day, learning how to combine colors so that they can make buttons to “go” with if not match a favorite handknit item. Class is from noon to 5pm.

ColorJoy Stole by LynnHSunday 11/20 I’m teaching my wonderful ColorJoy Stole Class. This class should really be called “Combining Colors and Textures” because at least half the class is about this subject. Many folks are not experienced mixing yarns so we practice and learn together.

Sharon and SheridaThe second half of the day I teach techniques for this project… including how to fix dropped stitches in textured yarns/garter stitch, and other knitting hints. Often my students will make a date to have dinner with one another in a month or so, to show off their final projects. It’s as much fun as one can have with yarn! This class is from 11am-5pm.

Since both classes are a solid day, you’ll need a bit of a break in the middle. Either bring lunch or plan to go out and find a little take out on the west side of Lansing. I stay in for the duration to handle any questions.

Write Rob at rob@threadbearfiberarts.com to sign up, or call 517/703-9276. I can’t wait to have you join me!
