Buttonholes and Buttons with Susan Chastain

In our buttonholes class, you will learn to work a variety of buttonholes, including yarn-over holes, standard 2 row buttonholes, and 1 row buttonholes, great for large buttons.  We will discuss how to determine which buttonhole is best for each project, and will learn how to fix that pesky loopy stitch that often appears at the side of a 2 row buttonhole.  As a perk, you will also learn how to make Susan’s special knit buttons!

When: Saturday, July 22nd
Time: 1:00pm-3:00pm
Cost: $30

Knit Club #6 with Susan C.

In our last Knit Club class for this year, we will learn a gorgeous baroque looking pattern stitch featured in the “Brocade Bag”.  This pattern includes slipped stitches and a “quilting” stitch.  In addition to the bag, the pattern would be fabulous for a pillow, an afghan square, or the yoke of a sweater.

Club meets for 6 months on the last Saturday of the month.

When: Saturday, July 29th

Mountain Gods Vest with Suzanne Nielsen

This class is another fantastic opportunity not to be missed.  Learn from Suzanne Nielsen, the Zen Yarn Garden Rep/designer/teacher extraordinaire!  The lace design in this vest was inspired by a brief but lovely stay at “The Inn of the Mountain Gods” in Southern New Mexico. This resort is run by the Mescalaro Apache Tribe. It was named after The Mountain Gods who are said to have saved two injured people who had to be left by the rest of the tribe as they were fleeing an enemy. The two survived for several days in a cave after which their injuries were miraculously healed allowing them to evade capture and reunite with their people.

A unique cast on and bind off give this piece a clean, professional look. Strategic stitch marker placement makes it easy to keep track of your work without having to read the pattern on every row.

It can be worn upside down, right side up, open, or closed with your favorite shawl pin.

When: Saturday, July 29th
Time: 2pm - 5pm
Cost: $45
