Edie Eckman – Workshop 4

Thursday, July 11 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Treasuring Stitch Dictionaries

Stitch dictionaries. You’ve seen them: books filled with intriguing stitch patterns, rows of baffling text and perhaps charts that look unfamiliar. Maybe you even own one or three. But what to do with such a book? Learn how to go about turning a stitch pattern on a page into a finished object, and how to choose a pattern. Find out what multiples are all about, why charts are your friends, and how to adapt back-and-forth directions into working-in-the-round directions. We’ll look at examples of many different stitch dictionaries. You’ll leave ready to delve into that untapped treasure on your bookshelf.

Meeting Format: Lecture and hands-on learning

Level of Experience:  n/a
