Well its a new year and why not resolve to get crafty this year?
Learn how to knit, crochet, quilt, make a quilt, log cabin cushion, knit socks, how to finish your knitted garment.....I can offer all of these classes, they are friendly and fun, and I dont rest until you've got the skill - and remember a new skill will last you a lifetime.
Here are some of the classes I am running in January and February...
Hand knitted socks are very fashionable at the moment - so why not come along to my workshop and learn how to knit them? You will learn how to knit on 5 needles, turn a heel and finish a toe - plus loads of other tips. The class is on Saturday January 12th at Up country in Holmfirth and commences at 10 till 3 and costs £25. You will require double pointed needles and double knitting yarn - both of which can be purchased in the shop. Tuition, coffee, tea and yummy cake all provided in the warm atmosphere of 'Up Country.
On Saturday February 2nd I will be running a 'Learn to Crochet' workshop, It's from 10-4pm, its £35 and all you will require a 3.5mm crochet hook and some double knitting yarn. This class is for the complete beginner or somebody who needs to refresh their crochet skills. You will be taught the basic stitches of crochet, how to read a pattern and how to produce either a corsage or granny square. It will be held in the lovely surroundings of up stairs @ Up Country, with plenty tea, coffee and cake. Small group, focussed tuition...
And to support your 'crafty' learning why not come to the Up Country knitting club? It runs every 4th saturday from 2-4pm and its a get together of like minded people who want to sit and knit or crochet, can be given any assistance by myself and have tea, coffee and homebaked cakes. The club costs £10 and that includes a £5 voucher towards yarn @ Up Country.
Hope to see you in 2013!
