Sewing


Continental Knitting: Knit a Scarf
Knitting is not only a great survival skill. The repetitive motion of knitting makes it a natural stress reducer; gentle hand movements prevent and relieve arthritis. Use a Continental approach, which is faster than American because you work with only one hand. Learn it all–from deciphering most common pattern abbreviations to finishing the last stitch of your scarf. Great for gift giving too! NOTE: Scarf yarn will be discussed during the first class and is to be purchased before the second meeting. Right-handed knitting will be taught, although instruction will be modified for left-handers.
Instructor: Alina Liderman
Area of Town:  Greenway Plaza Area: Richmond/Kirby
Price:               $82 + practice yarn and a pair of needles available at $5 each

Knitting for Baby
Will there be a new addition to your family soon? They deserve hand knit luxury. Whether you're a first time mom or expecting your 10th grandchild, prepare to welcome them by knitting an adorable, super-soft hat. In class, finish a small baby hat and get tips on making a matching blanket or cardigan. NOTE: Course is suitable for people who have never knitted, or who need a refresher. Don't bring anything to class: yarn kits and needles will be available for purchase. Also note, the two Laura Penner knitting classes require completely different materials.
