Introduction to Sock Knitting– £75
Mondays, 6, 13 & 20 October, 7pm – 9pm
Fun and functional, knitting socks is extremely addictive! We’ll start by knitting a baby sock so you can learn knitting in the round on double-pointed needles, heel shaping, picking up gusset stitches, decreasing stitches and finishing with a beautiful Kitchener stitch. When you’re ready, you’ll knit a regular sock out of your choice of either worsted or sock weight yarn. For more information and to reserve a place, click here.
Introduction to Hand Quilting – £45
Thursday, 9 October, 6:30 – 9:30pm
Hand quilting is the method of sewing together the three layers of a quilt (the backing, the wadding, and the top) together by hand rather than on a sewing machine. In this class you’ll learn how to add design, dimension and texture to your quilt whilst hand stitching using perle cotton for a beautiful, modern look.
