Learn to crochet at MIY Workshop

Crochet is easy to learn once you’ve cracked the basics and is the perfect portable craft.  It will also keep your hands busy on those long winter nights in front of the telly….!

Places are limited to 6, the workshop runs from 10.30am to 4pm and is £40.

Sewing with Knits at MIY Workshop

It was a busy hive of activity at MIY Workshop yesterday with the first “Sewing with Knits” workshop of 2012.  Here’s some of my students’ impressive creations:

Clair in her very “kimono-ish” cardi, thanks to a great choice of fabric.

Lisa in her frock that I can see getting lots of wear in a really nice heavy denim effect jersey from Ditto.

Katie in her reversible cowl – perfect for chilly spring weather.

In addition to these finished pieces we also had another frock with added pleats and tucks which needed a few last tweaks and another cardi with perfectly matched stripes which was very nearly finished.  I’m looking forward to seeing photos of both of them!

It’s been a busy old weekend at MIY Workshop as Julia Hincks also ran her first workshop there on Saturday – “Learn to Crochet”, which successfully sent off 5 students to do lots of crochet creating, so we’ll be looking forward to more crochet action in the future.

Next weekend it’s machine embroidery…
