Nålbind a Headband and Matching Bootcuffs

Step out in style with a headband and matching bootcuffs. Nålbindning creates a stitch that doesn’t ravel, so your creations will wear well and look good for many winters to come. Renata Fossett will teach you the Korgen/Mammen stitch, changing colors,
and how to nålbind clothing in the round. $35

Materials: 2 skeins of bulky-weight Alafslopi yarn (100g/109 yards) in contrasting colors,
nålbindning needle, small “spritzer” bottle of water for joining ends (optional).

Two 2-hour classes. Saturdays, February 20 and 27        10 to noon 

Nålbindning - Make a Korgen-stitch Tomte Hat


Nålbindning creates a dense, warm fabric that will keep you cozy on the coldest of days and the fabric will wear well for years. Renata Fossett will teach you this ancient, but fun and practical, textile art. If you find that most hats or hat patterns are too small for you, nålbindning is the perfect solution. The hat is worked from the top down and can be made to fit any head. $35
You will receive 10% off all class supplies purchased on the first day of class.
Materials: 1-2 skeins Álafosslopi yarn and a nålbindning needle...
Saturdays, March 12 and 19        10 to noon

Fiber Arts and Magic in Norse Tradition

Fiber Arts and Magic in Norse Tradition - Kari Tauring

Spindle, shuttle, and needle were more than tools of material creation.
They were used to describe the cosmos and even to manipulate the fibers of the universe. Folk stories, songs, and myths tell us much about the power of fiber arts in the lives of the Nordic people. Kari Tauring illuminates the connections of fiber arts and magic in Norse tradition through these stories, songs, and drop spinning! 

One 2-hour class. $20
Saturday, March 26       10 to noon
