A glorious confection of colours created by knit groupie Catrina. Quietly knitting away Catrina has been knitting up a colour storm of petaled coasters.
Not only does Catrina surprise us with her dexterity, she is a wealth of knowledge with advice and help to us all, another valued member.
Thanks alot x
Here are the delicious new fabrics we have chosen, to add an air of sophistication to your Christmas crafting.
This range from "Free Spirit" encapsulates the colour and feel of the festive season in an subtle and delicate way that can last long after the celebrations have ended.
See below for the extra fabrics we have added to the general range...no less delicious or worth using for that special occasion.
Our regular knit groupie Anna completed her beautiful cotton essentials garment after much deliberation over the Italian pattern. It was all well worth the effort and much was learnt. Difficulties that occurred were soon sorted as Anna worked out a quicker way to create the same stitch as she went along. Creativity at its best... The cardie looks delightful well done for persevering and teaching us all another language!!!.Pretty sure it was not Italian.
Tuesday afternoon knit group...politics, literature, journalism and the need to pluck one's eyebrows...you learn something new every day.
Monday evenings will see The Fibreworks hosting a beginners course aimed at those who work during the day.
Starting on the 5th Nov to the 10th Dec, our teacher Pam will be escorting you through the rudimentaries of quilt making, to create a sampler quilt over the course of 6 evenings from 6.30 ~ 9pm. She will introduce a variety of techniques, including machine sewing, hand stitching, embroidery, applique, etc, which can be used on a series of separate panels, such as the Dresden Plate illustrated here. You'll be able to choose from a wide range of designs for your panels and personalise them with your own choice of fabrics and colourways.
Book early as spaces are limited.
£100 per person, excluding materials.
