Workshops

A mini workshop is one that is taught by a member of our guild and held in a member’s home.

Please note that mini workshops fill up very quickly, so if there is one that you are very interested in, please email the VP of Workshops. You will be notified when registration opens (usually 2-3 months in advance). However, your registration is not confirmed until your check is received or the VP of Workshops has received an email saying that you have put the check in the mail. Please check with the VP of workshops to see if there are still openings before sending in any money.

Guild policy is that mini workshops are only open to guild members until two weeks before the workshop. At that time, they are open to non-guild members at the price of $15.00 unless otherwise noted. If you hostess a workshop, you get to take it for free!

All workshops are $10.00 unless otherwise noted.

If you have any questions, please email the VP of Workshops.

Brioche stitch makes a wonderful, cushy, reversible fabric. In this workshop, you’ll learn Nancy Marchant’s “yarnover” method of knitting brioche. In the first part of the class, you’ll learn terminology, brioche knitting and purling, and troubleshooting. In the second part, you’ll have a chance to try out the techniques using your choice of several beginning projects.

The only skills needed are knitting and purling.

This workshop will be taught by Mary Holton



If you are interested in a Saturday seating of the Fair Isle or Brioche workshops, please let us know. If we get enough interest and some volunteer hostesses, we would be delighted to add a Saturday seating for these workshops.



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.
