Singlade Balls

Singlade Balls Class

Kate Sterner teaches you how to make singlade balls
– colorful and surprisingly sturdy balls made from bits of yarn carefully stitched around a fabric core.

This rare handcraft is found in Denmark and southern Sweden. Kate learned from her Danish grandfather and she has created a website dedicated to preserving and furthering this lovely craft. Singlade balls were frugally-crafted toys that delighted children and endured lots of use. Join Kate and use your stash while keeping a tradition alive. Bring wool yarn and a darning needle.
All the of the classes are mixed level, so beginners are always welcome as are advanced stitchers working on new designs. $30
Two 2-hour classes. 
All classes are on Saturdays and are from 10 to noon.
October 15 & 22
November 5 & 12

 Beginning Hardanger

Jenn Baese will teach you how to read a pattern, prepare your cloth, and to make the stitches that are the foundation of hardanger lace. A portion of the first class will be devoted to learning how to choose a fabric and thread. One of the many joys of hardanger is that even a very basic project results in a beautiful needlework piece. Absolute beginners are welcomed and encouraged to learn this classic lace style. More advanced stitchers needing help or hand holding on a project are also welcome. All students receive a 10% discount on class materials purchased on the first day.
$50 for 4 two hour classes.
Saturdays, October 22, 29, and November 5, 12     10 to noon
