Cameo KAL

Monday Mornings,

 10:30 – 12:30

with Laurie

Cameo by Paulina Popiolek. Has been by far the best selling pattern at Jessica Knits for several years now, especially after we did our store sample in the exclusive Jessica Knits colorway, Sedona Sunset.  It is a great next step pattern for the advanced beginner knitter and has just enough design to keep the seasoned knitter engaged. 
 
The pattern can be found on Ravelry here.  Krysten from Gherkin’s Bucket will be bringing us a great selection of our Jessica Knits exclusive colorways this week just in time for the KAL!

3-Dimensional Wet-Felted Vessel Class

with Louise Hall

Saturday, September 15th

10:30 – 4:30 p.m.

$70 per student
(includes all materials and lunch)
Space is limited so you must prepay for the class to hold your spot.
In this workshop you will learn how to make a seamless vessel using wool fibers and incorporated recycled fabrics to create a one-of-a-kind piece of art!  This class will give you the know how to take your felting skills further to make bags, hats, scarves, wherever your imagination takes you.
All materials will be provided and no previous
felting experience is necessary.
Louise has been a lover of the fiber arts since childhood. Growing up in Scotland, Germany, Belgium and England she was exposed to a lot of great arts and crafts.  Louise studied Foundation Art at Banbury School of Art in Oxfordshire, England, as a prerequisite to a Bachelors in Fine Art Printmaking at West Surrey college of Art and Design in Farnham, Surrey, England.  Louise enjoyed a career in Fine Art living mostly in Tubac, Southern Arizona through the 1980’s to mid- 1990’s.  After moving to Northern Arizona she revived her passion for knitting and on a trip back to England took a felting class which ignited a new passion!
Felting just “clicked” for Louise.  She now splits her creative time between knitting and her feltmaking.
