Class Offerings from Beth Whiteside

April 06, 2014

Designer Beth Whiteside will be teaching a couple classes at our shop this Spring and we can’t wait to tell you all about them!

beth-whiteside

Beth is a published designer with patterns in Creative Knitting and Knitter’s Magazine.  She has taught at knitting conventions all over the country, so it’s always fun to have her stop by our neck of the woods.

Coming up at the end April is our Playful Pleats, Wondrous Welts class.  Pleat and welt (tuck) techniques fold fabric back on itself, creating flaps and corded ridges. They can be used to add or eliminate volume, shape peplums or necklines and give texture to a stitch pattern or room to walk in a skirt. You’ll learn knife, boxed and inverted pleat combinations.

In May, we have a class to awaken your inner designer: Cowl-o-Rama!  Take stitch patterns you admire and turn them into cowls your adore.

Intrigued? Check out our class schedule for more information!

Design to Fit Sweater Workshop

May 06, 2013

Barbara

Isn’t it heartbreaking to knit a sweater that just doesn’t fit right, after all that work?  Bring in two sweaters, one that fits you well and one whose fit is not so great, some photos for sweater inspiration, and the amazing Barbara Paley will help you custom-tailor a stunning sweater.  This thorough workshop spans four weeks and covers plan-ahead finishing techniques as well.  You can check out the full course description in our class catalog. We are confident you’ll love this class as much as the other happy knitters who shared their experiences with us.

“I have both the knowledge to design and the confidence to knit sweaters without a pattern.  I also know if I follow the guidelines Barbara taught us, I won’t be wasting yarn, money or knitting time.” – Midge

“Not only did Design to Fit give me the confidence to design my own sweaters, it gave me tools to evaluate patterns and decide if they are right for me before I knit them. I learned techniques and principles that come in handy with almost any project.”  – Gabby

“By taking ‘Design to Fit’ I now truly understand the value of knowing ‘stitches per inch’ and how to apply that knowledge to create sweaters that fit me.” – Mary

Stop by the shop or give us a call at 415-621-6642 to sign up for this class!

What can you do with private lessons?

March 25, 2013

Ben

Ben came to us with no crochet skills under his belt and look at him now! He’s mastered the basics, crocheted gloves, conquered amigurumi, and has moved onto garments. Private lessons are a great way to cover a variety of topics outside what is offered in our already expansive class catalog. Private lessons are available for adults and children, in private and semi-private formats, with any of our bright and happy staff.  If you’d like to schedule a private lesson, please drop by the store or give us a call at 415-621-6642
