Join me at Alexandra Palace for some knitty fun.

Are you going to The Knitting & Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace in October?  Me too.  What a happy coincidence, how do you fancy sitting down and having some knitty fun with me for an hour?

Tempted?  You know you will want to sit down, you know that there won’t be a free chair anywhere.

But seriously (as Katie would say),  I am teaching a couple of workshops on Thursday 9th October and Friday 10th October.

Thursday I am teaching  Knit an I-Cord Flower Brooch, this class is a great introduction to I-Cord knitting and my Beaded Bracelet class for those who have not knit an I-Cord before.

Later on Thursday I am teaching, How to make a beaded bracelet, knit with beads and a crochet hook.   This class is an introduction to applying beads to your knitting with a crochet hook as you go.

Friday I am teaching Knit an I-Cord Flower Brooch and later in the day for those ready for something a little more challenging, knitting with double pointed needles (Take the Fear out of Double Pointed Needles and Knit a Napkin ring).

Want to learn to bead your knitting with a crochet hook? Let me teach you how

The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show, 13th – 16th March 2014

I am teaching as part of the Prima Make & Take Workshops at Olympia in March.  I have been itching to share the details with you,  I am teaching two classes and I am so excited!  It will be great to get to meet you and get you all beading with a crochet hook.  The first class is;

Knit a Beaded Bracelet using a Crochet Hook – Class code 60

Friday 14th March 2.15-3.15

All of my designs use this method of beading,  I can’t recommend taking the time to learn this technique enough!  So if you would like to learn how to apply beads to your knitting without painstakingly threading hundreds of beads onto your yarn first, this is the class for you.

During the class you will knit a cute beaded bracelet, whilst learning how to apply beads using a crochet hook as you knit.  We will look at the difference between pre-stringing beads and using a crochet hook and discuss benefits.   I promise you will have a fun time learning a new skill,  I can’t promise you won’t become addicted to applying beads to your knitted projects.

The kit is sponsored by Patons and Debbie Abrahams Beads. Debbie’s beads are just divine, you are in for a real treat!

The class costs just £10 and includes the kit.

Hooks and needles are available to borrow,  if you would like to bring your own you will need two double pointed needles size 2.5mm and a crochet hook size 0.75mm.

To enjoy this class you will need to be able to knit and purl.

You can book your place online or call 0844 848 0159 (the website is a little confusing and I would highly recommend phoning to book your tickets.  Also note that the £10 class fee does not include your entry ticket to the venue).
