When Fresh City Life talked to our expert fibers teacher, Ann Myhre, (Knitty Cat) about a knitting workshop that would incorporate multiple knitting and finishing techniques, she dreamt up this sweet little bag that allows knitters to rack up a lot of new skills in a compact project.
Finish this great purse in our June workshop and you'll move to the head of the class at Madame Defarge's Knitting Salon. Rarely does a knitting pattern offer up this many chances to practice new techniques, and with our dedicated knitting teachers for your tutors, you'll be graduating from intermediate to advanced knitter this summer. Grow your knitting skills for better fall crafting!
FCL's Madame Defarge's Knitting Salon is designed to keep knitters and crocheters learning about their craft. March workshop features technique based knitting for professional finishing (and beginning).

Perhaps one of Dickens's most notorious and intense characters, Madame Defarge makes her knitting count.
Madame Therese Defarge (A Tale of Two Cities) knits her vengeance into her knitting; and for good measure, she knits the names of the victims of the guillotine right into her knitting as well. This all happens while she watches the beheadings of the French Revolution.
