Workshops

Mini workshops are taught by our members and held in our members' homes. All workshops are $15.00 unless otherwise noted. If you hostess a workshop, you get to take it for free!

Our workshops are only open to NGKG members until two weeks before the workshop date. At that time, they are open to non-members for $20. Our workshops tend to fill up, so there are benefits to being a member.

You can receive a refund up to two weeks before the workshop. After that time, you can receive a refund if a substitute can be found.

If the guild needs to cancel a workshop, you will receive a refund.

If the guild needs to change a workshop, date, time, location or description, you may get a refund if you choose.

All checks are held until after the workshop.

If you are interested in attending a workshop or have any questions, please email the VP of Workshops.

Double Knitting

At the neighborhood clubhouse of Sharon Coleman (Woodstock)
Time: 1pm - 4pm

Monochromatic double knitting is not what most people imagine when they think of double knitting. this case, the magic is in the technique rather than in the patterning. Mono double-knit will allow you to work in the round on only two straight needles. And you can even work knit and purl patterns without purling! If you want to think outside the knitting box, this is your chance to get a new perspective. Class project is the Generic Double Knit Sachet.

This workshop will be taught by Jolie Elder

BRENDA DAYNE WORKSHOP RECAP - JUNE 2013

The North Georgia Knitting Guild was so fortunate to have Brenda Dayne come to teach three workshops. Brenda, the melodious voice of the podcast, "Cast On", is an awesome teacher and made learning fun. We had lots if laughs through out both days.

In the Creative Glove Design Class, we learned about the anatomy of the hand and how to take measurements to custom design gloves that fit snugly and properly. We were also treated to a fabulous power point presentation featuring various glove and mitten designs, lots of great inspiration!

The students in Mrs. Beeton's Wrist Warmer class gained knowledge of working with beads and inspired one another with their choices of beads, fiber and yarn colors. We were treated at the June meeting as finished wrist Warner's were displayed for all of us to enjoy.

In the Sherman Toe Up Sock Class, we started the day learning Judy's Magic Cast On, using it as a provisional cast on that began the sock right under the toes. Working on half of the stitches, we worked using short rows to work to the tips if the toes and around to meet up with the live stitches waiting for us . We then continued up the foot and worked the same short row design for the heel. After a ribbed cuff, the sock was finished using Jeny' Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off.

We extend a big thank you to all you came to the Brenda Dayne Workshops and to all who helped in any way.
