Edie Eckman – Workshop 3

Thursday, July 11 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Design Your Own Crochet Border

What better way to find the perfect border for your next crochet or knit project than to design your own? Mix and match a variety of crocheted elements, or choose an element from your fabric and expand on it. Learn how borders can enhance a project, how to deal with corners and curves, and how color choices affect design. Edie has designed borders for two best-selling crocheted edgings books, and now she shares her process with you.
