STYLIN', styling, restyling… with Jane Slicer-Smith
This 2-day class is the perfect opportunity to take a designer's advice in creating something new.
Jane's work is defined by style, color, fit, and look, and yours can be as well.
First, we'll examine 3 or 4 knits you have made and evaluate them with a critical eye—finding
successes and failures in each—then discuss changes to insure your next project is perfect for you.
You will be directed on how a garment can be personalized to suit your needs and desires.
And it won't take a math degree or involve the fashion police!
Be ready to start a new project— something totally different or a re-knit of a previous design—
the discoveries and inspiration will have you ready to take on the world (of knitting) a sweater at a time.
Bring inspiring yarns and plenty of enthusiasm! Creating something wonderful is only limited by
your imagination! Get ready to think about your look— style, color, and fit!
Bring knitted garments (up to 5 pieces, this can be 1 piece you love, 1 piece when what went wrong can I fix this and some that you are reasonably pleased with) along with the patterns if you still have the pattern; inspiring yarns and patterns that take your fancy that you'd like to maybe alter; yarn in 3 contrasting colors suitable for 4mm/US 6 needles.
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
