Saturday 10:30 am - 11:30 am
PP8 Easy Cables, One Column at a Time
Cables can be fun, but itâ€™s sometimes difficult to track the cable twists as you work across an entire row. In this class you will make a coaster by working one cable column at a time, adding more as you go.
Saturday 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
PP11 Basic Broomstick Lace
Broomstick Lace takes us back to the 1960â€™s when
larger yarns and more free-spirited crochet surfaced. Broomstick is fun for all but excellent for those with minimal dexterity since the tools used are large and easy to grasp. In class you will make a sampler to learn the technique. Must be able to single, double and treble crochet. Materials: 1 oz. #4 weight yarn for main color, one US 35 knitting needle, size I crochet hook, scissors, 24 6/0 seed beads (optional).
Sunday 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
