10:00am – 3:00pm
Class Location: University Settlement, 184 Eldridge Street, Art Room
Starting with a pre-knitted piece of fabric (no knitting necessary, unless you would like to), we will make our own personalized small purse/pouch. The class will explore embroidery, duplicate stitch, braiding, and crochet as forms of embellishment. Supplies will be provided, but feel free to bring a few items of your own (buttons, beads, small pictures, etc.) to add to your project to make it all the more personally expressive. Though many of us will be making a purse/pouch, you could easily turn your project into a pillow, or a picture frame, or… Let your creativity guide the way!

Hello folks, I’ve been invited to sing a few of my “Twisted Stitch” operatic cabaret knitting songs for this event celebrating the Norwegian knitting superstars… Arne & Carlos! Composer of these songs, Stefania de Kenessey, will be at the keys. I’ll be at the pipes (and needles).
Join in the fun on SUNDAY, JANUARY 18th 2-4pm at the SJOMANNSKIRKEN (for the non-Norsk speakers, it’s the Norwegian Church) i New York.
317 East 52nd Street, New York, NY 10022 (between 1st and 2nd Aves).
Bring your knitting, bring you Q&A, get your books signed by these Strikkesuperstjernene!
If you can’t read Norsk, allow me to translate the text below the image…. “this will be a super-fab event, you’ll not want to miss it. These Norsk guys are rocking the knitting world. Be there, or be a trapezoid.” ok, so that’s a rough translation, but you get the gist. ;-)

Performance: SINGING A TWISTED STITCH: the sometimes torturous, weird and addictive path that can be Knitting & Crochet with soprano LISA DAEHLIN and pianist ESTHER WANG (event details) compositions including works by Stefania de Kenessey.
