We try to offer a wide range of free events here for those interested in either learning more about a topic, trying out something new, or simply socializing with other fiber fanatics!

As we schedule such events, they will be added here on this page. Scroll down for details.

 


Sock Dye Day- just 1 spot left (as of May 26th)

Sat June 11th 9:30 - 11:30

More "Event" than "class", but there is a charge for the yarn and dye ($26) so I've got this listed in both places!

At 9:30 I'll demonstrate the process to dye a skein of sock yarn your own colors - be as creative as you want! I'll then leave you to dye your skein and we'll steam them all to set the dye.

While your skein is setting, you can sit and knit in the company of other participants, shop (of course!), or learn about the various toe and heel shapings that are possible BEYOND the usual standard sock! Some of these are fun to knit. Others just look cool. And some may fit your foot better than the standard you are used to.

So this is a great chance to also expand your sock knitting knowledge. YOu may leave deciding a different heel or toe is in your future!

Since we have to have a skein of white sock yarn available for you and it has to be tied/set up specially to be dyed, PRE-REGISTRATION and PRE_PAYMENT are required. And, registration closes on May 28th.

Mosaic Knit-a-Long-Tues June 14, 21, and 28

If you're interested in trying some mosaic knitting and want to have some guidance, on these 3 evenings in June I'll be knitting another mosaic cowl and you're welcome to join me and "knit-a-long" with me for support or sociability! And you don't have to knit a cowl - I shared some free patterns in the last email newsletter for mosaic knit trivets, pillows and mug-rugs so if you're more inclined to knit some home decor for yourself or a nice gift for a new homeowner, come on over. Both the cowl, knit in Noro, and the trivet are pictured.

As for other "events" I offer, I appreciate it if you would register - even tho' it is free and there is no charge. Since if I've chosen dates or an event that people can't make or aren't interested in, then I know have those evenings free to make other plans if nobody registers! So please shoot me an email or call the store if you are planning on joining me! northeastfiberarts@gmail.com or 288-8081
