It’s officially sweater-knitting season… even if it doesn’t quite feel like Fall yet! 😉 Come join us this Sunday, October 1st, from 1-4 pm, for our monthly gathering, as we chat, knit or crochet our way through projects great and small.
All levels welcome – even absolute beginners!
Pay what you can ($5.00 suggested donation per person); free tea, coffee & sweet goodies to fuel your efforts!
Local designer-maker-whizz Cal Patch is back at RosenSpace later this month with a 4-week Make Your Own T-Shirt workshop! This class is a great introduction to pattern-drafting, as well as to sewing with knits.
Pre-class registration required by Wednesday, September 27. To register, send Cal an email email@example.com
Thursdays, September 28, October 5, (skips October 12), 19 + 26 from 6-8pm
Four 2-hour classes, $160
Note: Students must bring their own sewing machine, and have at least competent beginner sewing skills. Some homework will likely be necessary in order to complete the project.
In this class, you will learn to draft a pattern for a t-shirt, based on your very own measurements. Then you will make a muslin, fit it, correct your pattern, cut out the real shirt and sew it up! New skills you will acquire are sewing with knits, stretchy hem finishes, and finishing the neckline with a self band. Once you’ve made your first, you’ll see how many possibilities there are are for all sorts of modifications. You might never buy another T-shirt again! For more details and list of required supplies, visit hodgepodgefarm.net .
Spend the hottest and busiest part of the day chilling out with fellow knittistas and crocheters, as we work and chat our way through our various projects, big or small. All skill levels welcome, including absolute beginners – we’d be happy to get you started with a free knitting mini-tutorial :-)Got yarn? Join our STASH SWAP! Bring in those skeins you just haven’t managed to finish off and trade them in for some that might better fit your current project(s). Or simply leave them for others to enjoy.
