Something Weill This Way Comes… bringing in its wake songs of love and hopefulness, tinged with (yet somehow overcoming) a touch of ennui. And we are on: chanteusey-operatic Lisa Daehlin and pianist Richard Pearson Thomas in an evening of cabaret, musical theatre, art song. The strains of Kurt Weill provide the backbone to this evening’s muse, inviting you to a musical journey flowing (some might say “spewn”) from the pens of composers old, new, borrowed, and (at times, most definitely) blue. Gird up your loins, get ready to channel your inner Pirate Jenny, we’re burrowing through that age old and endlessly fascinating topic of love, loss, power picked up and shattered along the way. It’ll be fun (Cole Porter will certainly have something to say about it).

noon-2pm – one-on-one Private Lessons
2-4pm – Broomstick Lace Crochet is an example of a technique which makes use of a tool designed for a common everyday household task but reinterprets its use to create a lovely fabric. That resulting fabric features larger than usual loops of yarn, gathered into groups and then embellished with several single (or other) crochet stitches. One particular distinction of this among most other crochet techniques, Broomstick Lace Crochet allows one to easily create ‘drape’ in the fabric, also showcasing and leaving visible long strands of the yarn. It is, therefore, an excellent stitch choice for supple blankets and flowing garments. Join us as we learn the basics of this lovely technique. PreReq: know how to make a chain and single crochet stitch. Contact Knitty City re supplies.
