Moebius Madness (starts TONIGHT)

A peek into the infinite possibilities of Moebius knitting. Students learn Cat Bordhi’s unique Moebius cast on and create at least two projects during the class, a scarf or wrap as the first project, and a bag, basket or cat bed for the second. Many edging and embellishment techniques are discussed, along with felting techniques for the second project. This class is guaranteed to inspire lots more Moebius knitting!

Sivia Harding Knit Clinic

We are so fortunate here at Twisted to be surrounded by experts in everything crafty. To that end, we’ve decided to play on one of our Twistedistas’ very strong teaching skills, while at the same time, offering you, our customers, another option for knitterly assistance. It’s the Sivia Harding Clinic! Clinics are drop-in, and cost just $10 an hour. Of course, having said that, you can always pre-register if you’d like, for as little as an hour, or as long as 4. Sivia can help you with pretty much any knitting problem you may have. She’ll get you all straightened out, no worries!

 

Zipper Workshop

We will learn how to sew a zipper by hand for a strong, clean, supple finish, using a method with specific steps that give a great result, every time.
Saturday, May 7, 1:00–3:00pm.
with Anne Berk
$20
Materials: Bring to class: two knitted swatches – of the same length, in which to insert your zipper. If you have a project that needs a zipper, this is the place to bring it. Bring yarn that matches your swatch in weight, to knit an edging, if needed. Zipper – preferably the same length as your knitted pieces, or a bit shorter. www.zipperstop.com is an excellent source for
zippers, offering vast color range and customized lengths. Sewing pins, sewing needle, thread that matches the color of your swatches, and thread that is a contrast color (for basting). Buttonhole thread is great, but any thread will do. Scissors.
