♦ Stranded Knitting Study Group
Wednesday, December 6; 2:00-3:00 p.m.
Not a class, this will be a once-monthly support group for stranded knitting. The only way to become proficient in this colorwork technique, also called Fair Isle knitting, is practice, practice, practice – so that’s what we’ll do together! Participants invited to bring their own projects and share any tutorials, patterns, videos, etc. that they’ve found helpful. Free.
Please call 570-287-9999 at least 72 hours in advance to reserve your spot in our classes. This gives us time to prepare your class materials and allows you to finish any pre-class homework
