Eye-Catching Edgings with Edie Eckman
Crochet in on trend in fashion and home decor, so be a part of it with crochet edgings on your linens, handwovens, clothing, and, of course, knit and crochet pieces. Learn several ways to attach crocheted edgings, when to crochet-on vs. sew-on, and best practices for choosing yarns and edgings.  You'll get hands-on practice crocheting your choice of borders, as well as plenty of ideas for quick-to-make projects with lots of oomph!

Class time allows for sampling a couple of edgings and we will cover other options that you can practice at home.

Note: Must be comfortable with basic crochet stitches: chain, single and double crochet.

_One or two of the following: a handkerchief, napkin, dishtowel, apron, handwoven fabric with finished edges, knit or crochet swatch.

Keeping in mind the scale of your project and the weight of your fabric also bring:
_lighter-weight fabrics
_Pearl or crochet cotton thread or up to dk-weight cotton for medium-weight fabrics
_Yarn used for weaving, knitting or crocheting, or similar-weight yarn
_A sharp sewing needle in a size appropriate for your thread/yarn
_Hooks in appropriate sizes for your thread/yarn

Ensure that fabrics are ready for an edging by washing and ironing fabrics as needed; block knit and crochet swatches.
