We manage to stay pretty busy most of the time here at WEBS, as you might imagine. But some weeks it can feel like we are taking that busyness to the next level! Late March seems to be one of those exciting times.
This Sunday, March 27th, we are welcoming fourteen favorite crafty talents to the store to chat about their publications and art. This event is free, but we ask that you register so we know how many people to expect. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet these local talents, check out garments from their books, and shop at the store on a Sunday!
Then, one of those authors will be returning the following Saturday, April 2nd, with a pair of classes exploring fun techniques in crochet! Mary Beth Temple is bringing us Broomstick Lace and Tunisian Crochet workshops all in one day. These two techniques have been popping up everywhere lately and I’m excited about adding them to my line-up of design elements. I think they will make dramatic additions to both crocheted and knitted garments. If you agree, and want to explore the basics of these techniques, you can register here!
And then, on to the Anniversary Sale!
But before I get too ahead of myself, I want to thank Mary Jane Mucklestone for coming by the store last week and kicking off this busy season with some fun colorwork classes. My co-worker, Liz, and I shared the exact same yarns, in the same colors and, in doing so, learned a valuable lesson about how different colors can look when used in different orders, and when holding yarns in the dominant or non-dominant positions. Just look at the difference:
Mary Jane did a great job of reminding me just how much I adore doing Fair Isle!
