As if there isn’t enough wool yarn out there to keep us busy knitting, there are other materials to use that can create very different textures and designs. Have you ever tried fabric? The different ways that fabric can be manipulated as yarn and with yarn really bring new meaning to the words “color” and “scrap.” Join Guild president Stella Sexmith as she introduces us to three different approaches to knitting with fabrics. Expect to complete one small project and leave with new tricks to put in your knitting bag.
This will be a hands on program! Supplies to bring:
#15 Needles, or maybe #11 (for those of us with small hands)
At least 4 pieces of 36”x 1” cotton fabric. Fabric pieces may be the same or different
Pencil or pen
An open mind
Even if the idea of knitting with fabric does not appeal to you, I urge you to try this one and bring the following supplies:
Plied yarn, like Cascade 220
At least 40 pieces of 1”x 2” cotton fabric.
Choose a variety of coordinating colors or trade pieces with friends. This will make the project more interesting.
We’ll also have our usual short business meeting and show-and-share.
Our NIGHT MEETING will be on Tuesday evening, January 12, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Fireside Room at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church, 2500 Soquel Ave.
Our DAY MEETING will be on Thursday, January 21, from 10:15 a.m. to 12:15 at Vintage Faith Church (aka The Abbey), the large brick church at the corner of Mission and Highland.
From Highway 1 North, Highland is the first right after the light at the top of the hill where Highway 1 merges into Mission Street. Parking lot is the first right turn off Highland.
From Highway 1 (Mission Street) South, turn left at the light on Walnut to Escalona. Turn right on Escalona to its end at Highland. Parking lot is across Highland. Enter through the Office; our meeting is straight ahead in The Fireside Room.
