Hand-Made Crafternoon: October 15, 2011

Saturday, October 15, 2011_Join crafty librarian Jessica Pigza of the Rare Book Division and Crafternoon author Maura Madden for a free DIY day at the Library.  Our special guest will be the crochet and knit designer (and opera singer) Lisa Daehlin, who will share her knowledge of--and love for--knitted and crocheted lace designs (hairpin, broomstick, and Tunisian lace crochet, as well as yarn-over lace knitting). She will demonstrate some beginners’ techniques for making knitted and crocheted lace. We'll have a limited amount of supplies and tools to share and try out that day, but if you have the following please bring: DK or heavier weight yarn, a size G or H crochet hook, size 50 knitting needles, and a hairpin loom.  And as usual, we'll have a selection of books on lace from the Library's collection for browsing too.Join crafty librarian Jessica Pigza of the Rare Book Division and Crafternoon author Maura Madden for a free DIY day at the Library.  Our special guest will be the crochet and knit designer (and opera singer) Lisa Daehlin, who will share her knowledge of–and love for–knitted and crocheted lace designs (hairpin, broomstick, and Tunisian lace crochet, as well as yarn-over lace knitting).
