Saturday, Aug 13th: Oh No Not Another Scarf - from 10am to 4pm.

We will be creating all day with Maggie's signature stitches like rag knot, tubes, splits, and the ladder stitch.  You will create a sampler piece that can be turned into a scarf, purse or table runner.  This project will be your special creation and design, with the guidance of Maggie and her unique ideas.  Plus, you'll learn the additional finishing techniques necessary to make your project an amazing success. Also tips she learned from having 45 knitters in Ireland when she did Ready- to- Wear.
