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!
Over the last 40-ish years Lucy has explored many areas of knitting; intarsia, lace, modules, stranded (to name but some) and had been heard to say that she has no favorites. However for the last ten years or more she’s been down the rabbit hole that is double knitting. Her addiction to double knitting was not an overnight transformation and today we’ll take a look at her journey, what double layer knitting can achieve, why it has such a mystique, and for those interested, how to set out on the adventure into this parallel knitting universe.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn all about Tunisian crochet with crochet educator and designer Toni Lipsey of TL Yarn Crafts! Tunisian crochet is a cross between traditional crochet and knitting that creates a uniquely fabulous fabric. Toni will demo the basic techniques as well as a few fun stitches during this Fiberside Chat, share a few of her favorite Tunisian crochet designs for your inspiration and answer questions live!
You’re encouraged to learn alongside Toni during the Chat. All you need is a 6.5mm straight crochet hook (no special handle or ergonomic design) and a small amount of worsted weight yarn.
