Arm Knitting with Victoria Boehmer

Morning Class: 9am-12pm

Arm Knitting is done with one's arms instead of needles. Any variety of products can be made with this process; scarves, shawls, blankets, vests, etc. We will start with a simple infinity scarf to learn the process. After the initial project students should have plenty of time to complete one or more projects as they desire.

This can be done with a large variety of yarns; ruffle yarn, ribbon yarn, bulky yarn, etc. Most projects are at least 2 strands (held double), but can go up to 6 strands if the yarn is a worsted weight. Feel free to bring any yarn you are interested in using!

Supplies: Arms, scissors, creativity, yarn

Materials Fee: For the first infinity scarf $6+ depending on yarn choice.

Class fee for Guild members - $10.00. Non-guild members - $35.00

Sewn Pillowcase with Mary Haper

Morning Class: 9am-12pm

Make a take-home pillowcase by sewing it "burrito" style. Quilting cotton fabrics are best, choose coordinating pieces as below. Once you get the technique down, you can make several during the class. Sewing machines, notions, scissors, irons, etc., will be provided or bring your own sewing kit. These make great kids' gifts, holiday gifts, or for your own bed. If you want instructor to provide fabrics, get in touch at least two weeks in advance. Cost will then increase to cover the fabrics. 

Materials:

· 3/4 yard (27″ x width of fabric from selvage to selvage) of the main fabric

· 1/4 yard (9″ x width of fabric from selvage to selvage) of coordinating fabric for the cuff

· 2″ x width of fabric (from selvage to selvage) strip of solid fabric for accent, pressed in half lengthwise to make a 1″ folded strip

No materials fee unless instructor provides fabric.

Class fee for Guild members - $10.00. Non-guild members - $35.00
