Upcoming Classes

Monday, October 19th, 2009

Hi, all. I want to let local knitters/fiber friends know about a few classes I have coming up in the next week or so.

Sunday at Rae’s, I’m teaching session 1 of 2 sessions, of Fix and Finesse. This teaches you how better to “read” your knitting, count rows, fix mistakes, go back without ripping. It teaches just a lot of tricks to help you feel more powerful over your projects.

This is a great class. Everyone who takes it is delighted that they did. I adore teaching it. I see virtual “lightbulbs” go on over heads the whole time. It’s so empowering!

A week from today, Tuesday the 27th, I am teaching “Darn that Sock!” We will learn two ways of fixing a hole in handknitted fabric. This is not a super-fine-handknit repair class. This is a sock or sweater repair class, for items where you can see what needs fixing with normal tools.

Darning is not hard. Mom taught me how to do it one way when I was probably in 3rd grade. Even if you do it imperfectly, the result is a repaired sock, and the repair is under your foot where nobody sees it. Now that so many of us have been knitting socks for a while, some of us have repairs to make. This is just your class!


Rae’s Yarn Boutique
2004 E. Michigan Avenue
(a few blocks west of Frandor, same block as Emil’s Restaurant)
Lansing, Michigan
email info@raesyarnboutique.com to pre-register, or stop in the shop.

Fix and Finesse: Sundays, 1-3pm, Oct. 25 & Nov. 1; $30
Darn That Sock!: Tuesday October 27, 6-8pm; $15

If I have nobody signed up, I will not be there when you come for the first class. I do know that the darning class is already a “go.” I’m not sure what the status is of the other class.

For the record, Rae’s website has a Classes Page with more information on more classes. Maybe you would like to check that out? She has a PDF schedule there which goes through December, for all of the instructors who teach at the shop.

(For those out of town, I do travel and would love to teach your group. I’ve taught from Boston to Chicago, from Michigan Fiber Festival to Dallas/Ft. Worth Fiber Festival. Let’s talk!)

Please consider joining me. These are wonderful things to learn!
