Workshop: All About Yarn Substitutions

Sunday April 17, 2011

Join Fearless Leader, Laurie Wheeler for an afternoon workshop at The Landmark in Georgetown. Sometimes we just don't want to use the yarn called for in a pattern; maybe it's the fiber we don't like or  are allergic to,  it might be that the yarn has been discontinued. There are lots of reasons we substitute yarn in our projects. How often do those projects end up unfinished, or unsatisfactory if they do get finished. Learn the secrets behind substituting yarn for projects so that every project turns out successfully! In the long run you'll save time, money and tears; Plus you'll know the Secrets of Yarn.
