Professional Finishing Techniques for Knitters

Sunday 29th January 2017

Do you love knitting but hate sewing up? Do you dread the words ‘pick up and knit’? Can your ‘invisible’ seams be seen from outer space?
Never fear! In our half-day workshop, official Rowan tutor Avril Best will teach you professional techniques that give your handknit projects a classy finish. Learn the correct way to do mattress stitch, pick-up-and-knit and more.
From now on, your knitting will look HAND-MADE, not HOME-MADE! – which is what we all want, after all.
£25 per person. Places limited and advance booking essential; please ring, message or ring 01453 763490 to book.

Learn to Crochet

Always wanted to be able to crochet? Now’s your chance… Tutor Julia Dalziel teaches you the basics of crochet and gets you started on a simple granny-square project, over three Thursday-night lessons.

Dates are 12, 19 and 26 January.

Price is £40pp for the three sessions, including a KnitPro crochet hook and 100g Rowan wool – this is *great* value for money!
Book a place for yourself (or for a friend – this would make a great Xmas gift) by messaging here, emailing enqs@bluestockingwool.com, ringing 01453 763490 or, of course, popping in to the shop.

Private tuition

We offer ‘Learn to Knit’ and other basic skill sessions on a one-to-one basis at £20 per hour. For additional students, add £5pp per hour. Please contact us to arrange.
