The Lace Sampler Workshop
Before there were pattern books, lace stitches were recorded in beautifully knit samplers that were passed from knitter to knitter. Spend a day learning to knit lace and begin your own heirloom sampler. You may choose to sample several patterns or to concentrate on advancing your skills and understanding of lace knitting. Basic skills are required, but knitters of all levels are welcome.
Student Supplies: 2 oz. fingering weight yarn, straight or circular needles, size 6 to 8. Also, yarn needle, scrap yarn, basic knitting supplies, scissors, pencil and paper.
Seating is limited. Lunch will be provided in the workshop fee. Let the store know if you have any food allergies.
Cheryl will be having a special trunk show on August 25th featuring her hand dyed yarn and kits available for purchase.
Cowgirl Yarn will also be hosting a book signing that evening featuring Cheryl's three amazing books.
If you will join us from out of town, please let us know if you need assistance in booking a room.
