I will be teaching 6 Classes plus doing 2 presentations at Professional Development day this year! Here is just a sampling of the classes I will be teaching:
Traditional Venetian Lace - Learn a style of Venetian Lace that includes motif work which is similar to tatting. Instead of the usual tiniest of threads, you will use a larger yarn to recreate the designs and have a great start on a scarf.
Crocheted Shrugs - Crocheted shrugs are fun, fast and EASY to make. Learn how to create a shrug for yourself using two measurements and any type of yarn you wish! We will also discuss how to get creative with long/short/sleeveless styles, textured stitches, flared cuffs, beads and more.
Cuff Down Crochet Socks - Intimidated by knitted socks? Learn to make simply easy crochet socks from the cuff down. Use your favorite sock yarn and learn a new stitch to create a softer fabric with toes and heels that are a bit heavier to prevent wearing out quickly. Learn the Heel Flap and Gusset way of creating socks like Karen teaches in her book, I Can't Believe I'm Crocheting Socks. They are made all in one piece with just two ends to weave in when you are done.
Learn Delta Lace Crochet - Delta Crochet has been touted as a technique used primarily in Thread Crochet. By adapting this technique to yarn it is easy to learn for the advanced beginner to intermediate crocheter. Students will learn this technique while creating a lacy shawl for spring and summer. Based on Karen's book Learn to Delta Lace Crochet.
Crochet Pattern Reading 101 - Struggling with reading even basic patterns? Learn my fool-proof way to break down patterns so that even the most complex of patterns can be simple to understand. Using two sample patterns as well as a pattern you are struggling with from home, you will be a pattern-reading pro in no time.
The Lover's Knot - Looking for a new stitch pattern? Need a new edging? The Lover's Knot can be used as both. Also known as Solomon's Knot, learn how to use this stitch to create lacy shawls and scarves or just to add some fun on the edge.
