Classes So Far

Slowly, slowly, classes for the May 2017 braid in are starting to roll in.  (Deadline is December 10 for submitting classes…. see link above to submit a class).  Registration opens January 1.

I have been having fun thinking about what I would like to teach.  I always sign myself up for teaching classes for which I have things only about half figured out, and hope that the deadline will sufficiently motivate me to clean up the details.  Most of the time this works!

After some discussion with some of my loyal students, I’m going to teach the following: 1.  Fun with Chevrons.  2.  Flower Petals with a Twist.  3.  Butting.

The Fun with Chevrons will be… fun.  Here’s a photo example of a chevron border from a shamrock rug a few years ago:

This shows a simple “chevron dot” pattern.  But there are other easy patterns to create with chevron braids.  We’ll make a small rectangular mat and explore patterns and corners and butting with these 4-strand braids.

For Flower Petals with a Twist… I don’t have a photo because I have only worked it out on small practice pieces so far.  I have to figure in some time for making a chair pad or doily-sized example.  It involves using one strand twisted around itself to create the center spoke of each petal, and this twisted strand enables you to avoid having to do any e-lacing or shoe-lacing to close the center of the petal.

Then I’ll probably offer Butting, just because it’s a good basic skill that has been made easier to get comfortable with, now that Anne Caldwell created the Annie’s Fanny Butt.

Other classes being offered are:

indian-corn-25.  Braided Indian Corn with Peggyann Watts.  Peggy figured out how to make these delightful corn cobs (the corn fronds come with the class) in continuous fashion rather than 9-loop center after 9-loop center, so to my mind at least these will be much more interesting and fun.  How will she do a teeny tiny taper???  Can’t wait to find out.

6.  Braided Acorns with Pam Rowan.  (Indian corn… acorns… anyone say Autumn door arrangement?)  These little cuties are made with 9-loop centers so you’ll get plenty of practice for your all-butted chair pad or hexagon star centers.

7.  img_3325Standing Wool Trivets with Jenn Kiarsis.  I made one of these in Jenn’s class at Methuen and had a great time.  My trivet was on my Thanksgiving table (although next time I’ll pick some colors other than turquoise, olive green, and bright orange).  Well, it was covered up by the stuffing bowl so it was okay.

If you’re thinking about submitting a class… please get moving on your project or technique, and don’t forget the deadline of December 10!

  1. The Indian Corn and Acorns are delightful and clearly accomplishable in a class time frame. Excited to see them in person.

  2. Yes, Karen, we’re trying to offer classes that both teach you something useful and give you a completed project — or close to it!

  3. Looking forward to the 2017 braid in and going home with finished braided Indian corn. Always fun to learn something new.

  50. Hey There. I found your blog using msn. This is a very well written article. I will make sure to bookmark it and come back to read more of your useful information. Thanks for the post. I’ll certainly return.

  51. I must show some appreciation to you for rescuing me from such a challenge. After surfing around throughout the search engines and coming across views that were not productive, I figured my entire life was well over. Existing without the strategies to the difficulties you have fixed as a result of your main write-up is a critical case, and ones that would have adversely damaged my career if I hadn’t discovered your blog post. Your main competence and kindness in controlling a lot of stuff was invaluable. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not encountered such a step like this. I can at this point look forward to my future. Thanks a lot so much for this reliable and results-oriented help. I will not think twice to propose your site to any person who wants and needs direction on this matter.

  52. I was just looking for this information for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your web site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this type of informative web sites in top of the list. Usually the top web sites are full of garbage.

  53. Thanks for your tips on this blog. Just one thing I would like to say is that purchasing consumer electronics items in the Internet is certainly not new. The fact is, in the past few years alone, the marketplace for online electronic devices has grown considerably. Today, you can get practically virtually any electronic device and tools on the Internet, including cameras and camcorders to computer elements and games consoles.

  54. One thing I’d really like to say is that often car insurance cancelling is a horrible experience so if you’re doing the right things being a driver you simply will not get one. A lot of people do are sent the notice that they are officially dumped by their own insurance company and many have to fight to get extra insurance after the cancellation. Low-cost auto insurance rates are generally hard to get after having a cancellation. Understanding the main reasons concerning the auto insurance cancelling can help owners prevent completely losing in one of the most crucial privileges offered. Thanks for the thoughts shared by means of your blog.

  63. Good day! I just want to give a huge thumbs up for the nice data you’ve right here on this post. I will likely be coming back to your weblog for more soon.

  64. Thanks for your posting. I have always seen that almost all people are needing to lose weight since they wish to appear slim in addition to looking attractive. On the other hand, they do not often realize that there are other benefits for you to losing weight also. Doctors claim that obese people have problems with a variety of diseases that can be perfectely attributed to their excess weight. The great thing is that people who are overweight along with suffering from various diseases are able to reduce the severity of their own illnesses by means of losing weight. You possibly can see a steady but notable improvement in health while even a slight amount of losing weight is obtained.

  67. Hey! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Many thanks!

  68. One thing I would like to touch upon is that fat reduction plan fast is possible by the suitable diet and exercise. An individual’s size not simply affects the look, but also the overall quality of life. Self-esteem, melancholy, health risks, and physical abilities are affected in fat gain. It is possible to just make everything right and at the same time having a gain. If this happens, a medical problem may be the root cause. While an excessive amount of food and not enough exercise are usually responsible, common medical conditions and widely used prescriptions can certainly greatly amplify size. Thanks alot : ) for your post here.

  69. Very efficiently written post. It will be valuable to anyone who utilizes it, as well as me. Keep up the good work – i will definitely read more posts.

  70. Hello there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my facebook group? There’s a lot of folks that I think would really appreciate your content. Please let me know. Many thanks
