Join us for a fun day with Cascade Yarns where you will be able to "taste" aka try out a variety of their yarns ranging in weight from sock to bulky. Shannon Dunbabin, Cascade Yarns owner, will be on hand to talk about fiber, twist, how their yarns are produced in addition to project ideas. There will be plenty of garment and accessories samples on display to help you see how the various yarns look when made up and figure out the perfect yarn and pattern pairings.
Get ready to expand your knits knowledge beyond the basic tee or raglan sweatshirt. We will learn intermediate techniques such as hoods, pockets and necklines such as a ?V?, split or a faux wrap depending on your project. We will also go over color blocking (whether your project includes it or not) and how to ensure your stripes line up as much as possible.
Aprons come in many styles and have a multitude of uses. They are extremely helpful garments that can keep your clothes clean, carry supplies for an activity or act as a fashion choice. The Pacific Fabrics staff has compiled a list of their favorites for all skill levels. Fabric choice will determine if this is a year-round, activity specific or holiday apron.
A collaborative effort between Grainline Studio and Fringe Supply Co., Stowe is the ideal project bag - whatever your project may be! The main compartment is perfect for works-in-progress while the many side pockets organize small tools, patterns & notebooks. It may have been designed with knitting in mind, but you'll find it equally useful for a variety of purposes. The large size makes an excellent reusable shopping bag and the included inside pockets to corral a wallet and other small items mean it can be the only bag you take to the store. Along the way you will also learn about bias binding and how to apply it.
