May Workshops at Wholly Craft!

Beginning Knitting

Sundays, May 16th and 23rd, 3:30-5pm

Class Fee: $25

Materials Needed: size 11 knitting needles and one skein of worsted weight (means medium thick)yarn. (supplies can be purchased next door at Wonderknit!)

Keep your hands busy this season with a skill that’s both relaxing and productive! Knitting creates calm and a plethora of warm accessories and great gifts. This class is for absolute beginners---we’ll start with the basics and move on up to some serious scarf making. Seasoned knitter Adrienne of the Crafty Beavers will teach us casting-on, basic knit and purl stitches, changing colors, and casting-off. In this class we’ll make an ipod/cell phone cozie and start work on a scarf.

Sewing For Baby: 3D Baby Block

Thursday, May 20th, 6-8pm

Class Fee: $15

Is there a new little one in your life? Learn how to create unique, handmade toys to share with that special little somebody! In this beginner’s level class, you’ll utilize hand sewing techniques to create a 3D object. You’ll walk away with a super soft, fabric block that they’ll be sure to hang on to for years to come!

Soft Sculpture Workshop

Sunday, May 23rd, 12-2pm

Class Fee: $15

All Materials Provided

During this workshop with May wall gallery artist Helma Groot, you will create your own soft sculptures. You will make simple patterns, and use recycled fabrics and stuffing to make objects of your own designs. Helma uses many soft sculptures in her mobiles, and she will show workshop participants the techniques she uses to create her artwork.

Sewing Lab: Machine Basics

Sunday, May 23rd, 2-4pm

Class Fee: $18

Did you get a new sewing machine? Do you spend more time staring at or fiddling with your sewing machine than actually putting it to use? Emily of Umbrella Girl Productions has been sewing for over two decades and can certainly help you win the battle between human and machine. She specializes in older models but can also work a basic modern machine (no computerized models, please). Additionally we will talk about patterns, selecting fabrics, and sewing notions. Proper maintenance and care will also be covered during this lab. In order to ensure personalized instruction, the lab is limited to 3 people, so reserve your spot quickly!

**Advance Registration is required for all classes. Please call 447-3445 or email to register.
