On August 22 - Another Saturday with Sarah! Sarah Peasley returns with two new workshops - offered previously at national fiber-arts expos. In the morning: Basic Double Knitting Techniques. In the afternoon: Basic Cable Techniques. The prices are the same as her June classes: $60 for either class and $110 for both. Click the class titles above to learn details. Call or stop by to register. Space will be strictly limited to about 16 for each workshop
As some of you know, Sally is an old friend of ours - she visited our east-side locations more than once, always to a full house. She is doing a very bad job of retiring. She is the author of many well-known and well-regarded books for knitters - among them, Style, The Knit Stitch, The Purl Stitch, Color, and Mother and Daughter Knits - and the creator of the now-iconic Einstein Coat.
We can say this much: On Friday night, September 18, somewhere in downtown Farmington, Sally will offer a public lecture about the process of working with our hands - why we do it, what difference it makes in the modern world. (For those of you who have never met her - Sally is a fabulous teacher and lecturer). There will be a small entrance fee and light refreshments. This talk will be suitable for all crafters - young and old, women and men. Then on Saturday and Sunday, she will offer three or four knitting workshops in house - topics to be decided with your help. We have to limit seats to 16 or 17 each.
Go to the Sally Melville Knits website, look at her 3 and 6-hour offerings, and give us a ranked list of 3. Do it within the next few days. We will be making a decision within the next 7-10 days.
