Instructor: Winn Archambeau-Muñoz

Tuesday, September 24th; 1:00pm-4:00pm

How many of us have nearly completed projects in our stash?  All they need is just the final touches.  Come and learn the simple techniques to a lovely finish.  We will discuss different kinds of blocking, bind offs and pattern reading to insure correct shaping and sizing.

We will practice sewing a variety of seams in a variety of stitches, and making 1-row- button holes, as well as grafting and 3 needle bind-off. We will cover ways to hide and to weave in ends. Learn some short-cuts to take and some not to take so you will leave ready to finish you projects beautifully. Never let another lovely piece of knitting be left sitting unfinished.
