Headmistress Heather McKenzie teaches this workshop on one of the most important (and neglected) aspects of fine knitting: good finishing techniques. Students will bring several squares to each workshop and learn the best seaming skills (and other useful techniques) so that finished projects don’t look as though they’ve been made “with loving hands at home” – to quote our headmistress. After this workshop, you’ll be ready to tackle any pieced garment or knitted project. Register online http://denverlibrary.org/fresh#day or call 720-865-1206.
