Lacework Group - 1st Thursdays

  • FIBRE, LLC 202 West Wisconsin Avenue Rear Neenah, WI, 54956 United States (map)

What is this group?

Are you interested in lace knitting or crochet lace, such as thread lace, Irish or Romanian Pointe Lace, then come and join like-minded people. This is not a “class” but a place to come and share your triumphs and troubles with a given lace project. There will be others who can help, offer suggestions and encouragement. You might learn a new technique, such as the magic circle start, how to move the beginning of a round, or some of those new “Japanese lace stitches” that are all the rage at this time.

What should I bring to the group?

Enthusiasm. It can be difficult to actually work on a lace project in a group setting but bring them along so we can all see (and oh and awe) what you are working on. Bring along your questions or troubles or how you overcame a poorly written pattern. Bring along some needles and thread/yarn to try a new technique.

If you have a favorite designer, yarn, needles/hooks, pattern – please share with the group. Once we get going, we can set up a Ravelry group to keep the information and stay in touch during the month.

If you have a specific question or trouble, please submit to cstegert@new.rr.com before the first Monday of the month so we can be prepared to answer your specific question. Troubles submitted after Monday may not be able to be addressed in the group.

It there are specific questions/troubles submitted prior to April 3rd, we’ll start there, otherwise I’ll demonstrate the magic circle start (I use for both crochet and knitting) and find a fun stitch pattern for both knitting and crochet. So bring yarn and needles and hooks appropriate for the yarn size.

Hope to see you, even if you are on your first lace project, April 4th at 5:30 pm. Please book your place ahead of time by contacting Tori at Fibre as there are limited spaces!

Cost: $5/person. Coffee, tea, cold beverages and treats will be provided.
