Autumn Workshop with Sharon Knutson
Evergreen Senior Center, 5830 Grand Ave, Duluth Workshop is free to all NLA members.
The morning spinning workshop will go through the beginning fiber prep using hand cards, using drop spindles and the wheel. Sharon will cover some basics of spinning as well as a couple of different finishing techniques. Any participant with fiber tools to share is encouraged to bring them.
12:30 - 2:30
The afternoon will bring a class with two options. The first one is a pair of fingerless mitts called Schachmatt from Ravelry. The second option is a cowl of Sharon's design.
Local designer and teacher Mary Lou Eagan will visit the Guild and discuss patterns. As knitters, we spend hours searching for the perfect pattern. But what attributes really make a pattern worth knitting? Come join us as we explore this integral part of the knitting process.
As the days get cooler and that wooly skein looks even more inviting, why not try felting? Come and join local designer and teacher Marie Mayhew as she dazzles us with her amazing felted projects. Marie will have you looking at your wool in a whole new way with some tips and tricks for successful felting.
