Leaves are falling, there is a chill in the air & the fires have been lit! It is the perfect time for a cozy pair of felted slippers.
Join us every Wednesday, 11/1 - 11/15 from 6pm-7:30pm for the complimentary “Felted Slipper Help Along.”
Part class, part knit along & all fun, the Help Along is our version of a class where we will have plenty of knitting help, but with a relaxed structure so that you can knit at your own pace. We understand everyone has busy schedules, so the Help Along is structured with that in mind. Whether you start a few weeks in or have to miss a week- it is no problem. We will get you started from the beginning or picking up right where you left off.
Duffers Revisited by Mindie Tallack are a lovely pair of felted slippers that easily slip on & keep toes toasty. Comfy & flexible, the slippers are first knit, then felted to create a cohesive “fabric” where stitches have melded together.
Felted Slipper Help Along
Kick-off Night: Wednesday, November 1, 6pm-7:30pm

As the Help Along continues our knitting staff will teach seaming & how to felt your project at home in either a top load or front load washing machine.
