Beautiful on Both Sides: Weave and Embroider a Reversible Stole (Part 1) with John Mullarkey
The Lucretia Stole brings together the arts of weaving and reversible embroidery at a level designed to delight beginners and intermediate students alike.

In this full-day workshop, designers Franklin Habit and John Mullarkey will guide you through all the necessary steps. You'll weave and join plain and patterned elements of the center on a Schacht Zoom Loom with John; then, with Franklin, you'll work the bold two-sided embroidery that makes Lucretia a shawl you'll be proud to wear.

Please note: Students will not complete the stole in class; but will receive instruction and practice in all techniques required to make it.

Note: No prior knowledge of weaving or embroidery is required. However, students should be willing to learn to work from embroidery charts.

Note: This is a two-part class, you must also sign up for 1465-2 with Franklin Habit on Saturday PM. You cannot take one part without the other.

__For weaving and joining, one ball or wound skein of smooth, non-fuzzy heavy fingering or light DK yarn in white or a light solid or semi-solid color; natural fibers (or predominantly natural blends) are preferred. (One full skein will suffice for class; to complete the stole, you will need approximately 1400 yds of your weaving yarn of choice.)
__For embroidery, one ball or wound skein of smooth, non-fuzzy yarn in the same weight as your weaving yarn, in a solid or semisolid color that contrasts well with the weaving yarn. Avoid yarns that are unplied, softly spun, or that pill/abrade easily.
__Blunt tapestry needle for embroidery (bent-tip needles are fine).
__Notebook, and pen or pencil for taking notes.
