New freeform knitting and crochet classes




I am extending an invitation to join us for a new freeform knitting and crochet class which is being offered in Long Beach, California on June 12, 2011. We still have a few spaces available.

The class will cover some of the basics of creating freeform using different techniques. Additionally, we will touch on some design and color principles, yarn choices, introducing other things like felting or embroidery into the work. There are many possibilities for creativity that we will explore.

During the class, students will be working on a small project of their choice. You will need to bring knitting needles, crochet hooks, variety of different kinds of yarns and your imagination. I will bring lots of different yarns, fabrics, etc which you are welcome to use. I also bring samples of finished garments and handbags and other items to inspire your creativity.

We will provide cheese, crackers, salad as well as water, soda, tea and coffee. If you want to bring your own lunch that is okay too.

Please call ahead and make a reservation: (951) 925-3532 or (562) 233-2801 or you can email me at janicerosema@hotmail.com

Location is JA's Loft, 417 Alamitos, Long Beach, CA in the art district. Class hours are 11A-4P. Cost per student is $50.00.

Come join us for a day of fun and no pressure learning!
