Judy Pascale
Judy Pascale, a native of Connecticut and a life-long knitter, launched her career as a professional knitting instructor and designer in the early 1990s. She has professionally sold her unique knitwear under the name The Judith Collection, both privately and at juried shows. For several years she was employed at a yarn shop where she taught knitting classes and assisted numerous customers with their knitting and finishing problems. She is now exclusively teaching knit and design classes with the emphasis on customizing fit.

The second phase of Judy's design career combined knitting with beads. Using a non-prestringing technique and textured stitches, she has designed classes from small projects to garments. The most recent phase is wet felting. This ancient textile process remains vibrant and fascinating today. Either a Nuno scarf to wear or a decorative table runner or a bowl to decorate your home—creativity is endless.
Besides teaching for STITCHES, her experience includes: The National Needle Art Association (TNNA), Vogue Knitting Live (VK Live), The Knitting Guild of America (TKGA), and yarn shops and guilds all over the country.

Most importantly, Judy has joined the ranks of other talented members of the knitting community whose explosive interest is creating a renaissance for the ageless art of knitting.

Sunday 8:30 am - 4:30 pm Monday 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
ETC Intermediate Felting Meets Lace This two day class allows you ample opportunity to pursue a combination of two ancient crafts that produces a beautiful contemporary scarf.

The first of these crafts is felting. Felt itself is one of the worlds oldest textiles created from wool roving. You will be using an updated technique called Nuno felting. With this process you will layer high quality wool onto a hand-dyed silk fabric—both available in a wide selection of colors. The result is a soft, lightweight fabric with a crinkled texture.

Next you will create a knitted lace border that will complement the Nuno felted portion of the scarf both in weight and color. Using a short row technique, the scarf will follow a crescent shape that drapes beautifully.

Lace knitting and Nuno felting when effectively paired together are the perfect partners to create a one-of-a kind fashionable accent scarf for you!

Note: Materials fee
$15 for hand-dyed silk
$5 for roving
