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 1990's. 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 knitting and design classes with the emphasis on customizing desired 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. Her most recent phase is wet felting. This ancient textile process remains vibrant and fascinating today. 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.

4047 Intermediate Beaded Vine Lace Scarf The no pre-stringing technique allows the bead to slip onto a SSK or k2tog to create a unique fashion accessory. You will complete critical segments of the Vine Lace and Eyelet Lace patterns in a mini version of the full-scale scarf. While attractive on their own, the patterns are enhanced when combined. Value added: Experiment with ways to wear scarves, including Judy's favorite—a braided technique that works with any scarf all day long.
Material fee: $3.
Sunday 8:30 am - 11:30 am
5072 Intermediate Incredible Increases; Dramatic Decreases This class takes the mystery out of which decrease or increase to use by creating an “answer all” sampler of numerous techniques. The advantages and appropriate appearance of each variation are worked and discussed. An added bonus will be using a creative technique to add stitches that will allow you to work the front button and buttonhole bands in a rib pattern at the same time as your body of work. With this technique you can create a perfect button hole to enhance your jacket or cardigan in the exact desired location. Culminate this class by learning to use different weights of yarn within the same garment by creatively increasing or decreasing in an invisible method.
