Edie Eckman – Workshop 2

Wednesday, July 10 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Button It Up!

Crocheted buttonbands are more than just functional. They can be fun and beautiful as well, incorporating buttonholes into the overall design elements.  From the simplest openings to more challenging and complex edgings, you’ll see how decorative edgings can include custom buttonholes for any button. And if you can’t find the perfect button, you’ll learn a variety of methods to make your own. This class is for both crocheters AND knitters who want to create beautiful buttonbands.
