November Workshops Rescheduled

As announced at the November AKG meeting, the two November workshops have been rescheduled. Both will take place at The Knitterie at Rare Purls Yarn Boutique.

If you have questions, contact If you plan to have lunch at the adjacent Park Cafe, please check with their host or call ahead for reservations.

Holiday Decor
Saturday November 14, 1-5 pm

Holiday ornament patterns are a free download on the Interweave Knits website. Download the patterns, grab some odds and ends of stash yarn, the recommended needle size, and join us for fun and creativity. We will have a big basket for a "share pile", so extra yarn would be appreciated. (Remember, many of our new knitters have not yet nurtured large stashes.) There will be other holiday patterns available for inspiration.

Duct Tape Dress Form
Saturday November 21, 1-3 pm

In this workshop youwill make an inexpensive replica of your figure for use when crafting hand knits or making sewn garments. Our new friend Jamie will guide us through the steps. She has made 2 of these and swears by them. The materials list includes an old, long, expendable t-shirt, plastic wrap, good scissors, 2 rolls of duct tape (3 for large or extra large sizes), batting (plastic grocery bags work great) and a wrapping buddy. (Duck Tape now comes in many colors!)
