Needle Tatting Basics. Mondays, April 3 & 10 - 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Tatting is one of many traditional ways to make lace, and can be used to make beautiful lace jewelry, ornaments, pillow edgings, and more. Needle tatting uses the same ideas as the more traditional shuttle tatting, and basically follows the same patterns, but makes the whole process a bit easier. Come learn the basic stitches and styles of needle tatting, as well as how to read patterns and choose the right needle and thread for your project. All tools and materials will be provided for your use during the workshop.

Bookbinding: French Link Stitch. Saturday, April 8 - 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Learn to make your own hard cover book with this highly decorative stitch. French link is another stitch that allows the book to lie completely flat, which makes an excellent surface for writing or drawing. In this workshop, we'll use upcycled old book covers to create a hard cover book with leather or fabric hinges on the spine. All bookbinding tools and material will be provided for your use in the workshop.

Bookbinding: Stab Binding. Saturday, April 15 - 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Learn to make your own blank, soft cover book with this unique stitch. Stab binding allows you to create a book with a stack of single sheets, which could be useful for binding things like artwork, letters, printed items, or scraps of special paper - useful for keeping special mementos. We'll discuss several traditional Japanese stitch patterns that you can try out. All bookbinding tools will be provided for your use in the workshop.
