Workshop Descriptions

SATURDAY, JUNE 27, ALL-DAY CLASSES

Beginning Spinning: The Magic of Adding Twist
Shelia January16 students
Saturday, June 27, 9am-12pm and 1:30-4:30pm
COST: $55 Plus materials fee: $35 includes all fiber to be used in class (roving and combed top) and handout.
CLASS DESCRIPTION: Here's your chance to spend a day learning the basics of spinning on a wheel, from fiber characteristics to how a spinning wheel works, to seeing your own first yarn on the bobbin! We'll start by examining our wheels and ensuring that they are all tuned up for spinning success. Then we'll spend time learning to treadle, drafting fiber, and adding the twist to make yarn. The basics of plying will be covered and we'll practice as time allows. There are many types of fiber that can be spun, and while we'll concentrate on some of the many types of sheep's wool, we'll also look at what other fibers are available and popular to spin – such as alpaca, silk, mohair, and cotton. This class is designed to provide a solid foundation on which you can build further spinning skills while having fun with other fiber folks in a low-stress environment. Skills required: None other than the desire to try spinning.
STUDENTS BRING: A spinning wheel in working order, several empty bobbins, a lazy-kate if you have one, materials for taking notes.

Versatility with Cast-Ons
Harry Wells20 students
Saturday, June 27, 9am - 12pm
COST: $55 Plus materials fee $3 – printed materials
CLASS DESCRIPTION: We knitters all have our "go to" cast-on, the one which is automatic in our head and hands, and flows quickly. However as our experience grows, we begin to recognize that different projects require different types of cast-ons. Some projects need stretchy cast-ons; others need a cast-on that allows knitting in two different directions, and some projects gain sophistication and pizzazz by having a decorative edge cast-on. This class covers multiple cast-ons, including German Twisted, Crochet Hook Provisional, Channel Island, Tubular, Braided Two Color, Frilled, Picot, Rolled Edge, Judy's Magic Cast-on, and a rather complex two needle cast-on excellent for when an elastic edge (like for lace or K1B) is needed. Come discover a new versatility in beginning projects!
SKILL LEVEL REQUIRED: Should be able to accomplish long tail cast on, knit, purl, K2tog, and SSK without assistance.
STUDENTS BRING: Worsted weight wool or wool blend yarn in two colors, size 7 straight needles preferred (or whatever size you normally use for worsted weight yarn) but 24" circular is okay. Also DPN size 7, a straight needle or DPNs size 3, 4, or 5, waste yarn (worsted or DK), crochet hook (size G or H), tapestry needle, and small scissors.

Anything but Batts
Henry and Roy Clemes16 students
Saturday, June 27, 1:30-4:30pm
COST: $55 Plus materials fee: $20 – includes use of a carder, all fiber carded during class and batt lifter refills for storing carded batts.
CLASS DESCRIPTION: We all like big batts, but is that really all a drum carder is good for? Of course not! In this class, we will roll rolags and remove carded sliver (roving) from a drum carder. Students will discover which tools to use – and more importantly the techniques behind them – when using a drum carder for preparing fiber in a manner other than a batt. All carding and blending will be done on our Elite Series Drum Carders with each student using their own electric carder.
SKILL LEVEL REQUIRED: Intermediate. While no drum carding experience is required for this class, the amount of carding that takes place during the class may be a challenge for someone that has never carded before. Some drum carding experience or having taken our Exploring the Drum Carder or Drum Carding 101 class is preferred.
STUDENTS BRING: None – but should bring an attitude for learning. All tools and materials will be provided by instructors.

CLASS DESCRIPTION: Learn how to blend different fibers and bling on a hackle. It is my favorite way to prepare fiber for spinning as I can get the colors blended in the proportions that I want and the fiber is a dream to spin. Also, it is not terribly labor intensive. A hackle is also a great tool for removing vegetable matter.
SKILL LEVEL REQUIRED: none
STUDENTS BRING: Hackle, comb and something you can use as a diz (a button will work).
INSTRUCTOR'S BIO: Liz Palmer was born with knitting needles in her hands in a small town in Connecticut.
