Do your knitting projects need some extra pizzazz? Join us at the June meeting when member Mar Gee Farr will present different ways to embellish your knitting using a variety of yarns, beads, ribbons, embroidery and appliqué. She’ll show us a variety of materials that can be used to add a fabulous look to knitting projects of all kinds. Once you’ve been inspired by Mar Gee’s gorgeous embellishments, you can try them for yourself at her workshop Wednesday, June 8.
