Registration opened today for our Winter/Spring 2012 classes. We have a nice mix of longtime favorites with some classes that we’re offering for the first time. Look for the new tag highlighting these first timers. Below are a few classes that the staff at WEBS is buzzing about.
Advanced Lace with Beads & Butin: A Beaded Necklace with guest teacher Laura Nelkin – I am super excited to host Laura here at WEBS! She is an absolutely fabulous person and her beaded designs are absolutely stunning. Her classes aren’t until April but you will want to sign up early to ensure you get a spot! > Kathy E.
Sock Basics – I wish I had access to a class like this when I was learning how to knit socks. It was really hard to try to teach myself and this would have made the learning process so much more fun. In this class, Lindsey walks you through each step of making a sock from cuff to toe. Socks are great projects and they’re one of my favorite things to knit. There’s nothing better than putting on a pair of hand knit socks that fit your feet perfectly! > Grace H.
Design Your Own Crocheted Cowl – WEBS offered this class for the first time earlier this year but the time didn’t work out with my schedule. Two of my office mates did take the class and it was so exciting to hear about it and see the progression of their designs. Sara Delaney is a great crochet teacher. Her classes are always so much fun. This class would be a great way to spend my Friday evenings in February. > Dena C.
Weaving for the Advanced Beginner with Scott Norris – I’m really excited for this class with Scott. He’s a great teacher and this is a wonderful way to learn more about different weave structures. The class is geared for those who have taking beginning weaving and want to move on from that. > Leslie Ann B.
Pattern Photography and Styling for the Indie (and Budding) Designer with guest teacher Caro Sheridan – I’ve long been a fan of the photos featured on Caro Sheridan’s site and of the photos she has taken for other knitwear designers. So I can’t wait to discover all of her tips and tricks for styling items in a way that makes knitters want to run off and grab their needles and yarn to get started! > Tina M.
