Free "Learn To" Classes for Beginners
Don't know how to crochet or knit? Want to learn? Have a friend who wants to learn how to crochet or knit so they can come on these fun fiber-y weekends with you? Or a friend who is always asking you to teach them the basics?
Well, have we got a deal for you! (Or your friends...)
Once again Stacey Trock will be coming to DFW Fiber Fest and will teach our "Learn to" series for beginner knitters and crocheters!
All weekend long, we will have 75-minute sessions with Stacey so people can come in to learn how to knit or crochet, or BOTH! Best of all — these classes will be FREE to anyone who would like to learn.
Can't decide which class to take? Come take one class, and then take the other one, and see which one you prefer (if not both of them)! Then go visit our Stitching Lounge to find other crafters to visit with while you practice your new-found skills.
This year, our Sunday "Learn To" classes will be Advanced Beginner classes, for those knitters who feel comfortable with knit and purl, or crocheters who feel comfortable with single crochet. These classes are for those who want to learn just a little more before progressing on to our regular classes. In the Advanced Beginner knitting class, Stacey will cover various increases and decreases, including k2tog, ssk, kf&b, m1R, m1L. In the Advanced Beginner crochet class, she will cover various stitches (such as slip stitch and double crochet) as well as turning chains.
We will not be registering individuals for these classes prior to the event — it will be sign up on site. There will be two sessions of each class on Friday and Saturday, and one of each on Sunday, so plenty of opportunities to catch one of the classes and learn something new!
Bring your friends! Bring your teenagers! Tell your co-workers who always say they wish they could do that!
Have a larger group that wants to learn? Let us know in advance and we'll see what we can work out. Send your inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
