SINGLADE BALLS with Kate Sterner

Singlade Balls

Kate Sterner will teach you how to make singlade balls, traditional hand-stitched balls made from wool yarn. It's a lovely way to make a toy for a child or a cat, and to use those colorful bits of yarn in your stash. This rare handcraft is found in Denmark and southern Sweden. Kate learned from her Danish grandfather and has created a website dedicated to preserving and furthering this craft. Join Kate and have fun keeping a tradition alive. Bring wool yarn and a darning needle. $35
Classes will be held in our Needlework store and class sizes will be limited to 4 students.
