About the event

Description: Choose a shawl and join in the fun!  Friday evenings through September we will be hanging out at my great grandmother's table as we work on these beautiful heirloom pieces that you will cherish forever, or be so proud to give as holiday gifts!  Learn to fix mistakes, cable, bobble, make short rows, or just up your beginner game a notch with new shaping techniques!  Shawls are a great place to practice skills as they have no fitting requirements and are forgiving with tension and pattern precision. Here are the shawls we are suggesting for the class.  Interested in making something different?  Let me know and I'll have it ready for class night!
