For the course, we will use new and recycled materials. Students will learn to transfer a pattern of their choice or design (pillow, rug, wall hanging etc.) onto the foundation. How to pull loops and how to use recycled and new material using #4, 5 and 6 cut.

If you have any old skirts, blue jeans, etc. Wash them in hot water and dry them in the dryer. You will take them apart and learn how to cut them in class.

Leftover balls of knitting wool are good too. Bring them if you have no further need of them.
