FIBERSIDE CHATS

Join Live Online Chats with Some of Fiber's Most Exciting Creators

In this time of staying home and crafting, let’s take a minute to meet some of the very people that inspire us.

In collaboration with several other yarn shops, we will be taking part in one hour Zoom meetings with a host of well known designers and makers which gives us a chance to learn more about them.

While this isn’t a traditional class, it will be well worth your while to tune in!

There is a new procedure to purchase tickets for Fiberside Chats. Click on the artist and you will be redirected to Longmont Yarn Shop. Find Bella Filati on the menu and add to cart!

Wooly Wormhead
May 7 -1pm EST

The Magic of Sideways Knit Hats

This is a Hat knitting method so many folks associate with Woolly Wormhead and I’m keen to demystify it! I will talk about the construction method, and how there’s more than one method of knitting sideways. I’ll also discuss how our stitches and fabric properties change when we turn our work through ninety degrees, and the techniques we use to create a seamless Hat. We’ll cover why I love this method, it’s potential and how it differs to other Hat construction methods. It’s not going to be all technical - there’s lots of fun things to explore, and I’ve plenty of examples, schematics and deconstructed Hats to share!

This is a live Zoom Event on Saturday, May 7th at 1:00pm Eastern, 12:00pm Central, 11:00am Mountain, 10:00am Pacific, 7:00pm CEST.

THIS CHAT WILL BE RECORDED
