PATTY LYONS IS TEACHING AT ALTMAN'S ON JULY 23!

If you're on our mailing list, you already know about some of our great upcoming classes, including two that will be taught by the amazing Patty Lyons.

On Saturday, July 23, Patty will teach two classes: Patty's Knitting Bag of Tricks (9am-12pm), and Finishing SEAMS Simple! (1-4pm). They are $85 each, or $150 for both. The classes I've taken from Patty were so much fun and incredibly informative! I encourage you to take one or both if you possibly can. I can't tell you how excited I am to welcome her to Altman's! Hope you can join us!

KNITTING BAG OF TRICKS

Patty says, "There are so many wonderful knitting tricks that make our lives better. Over the years of knitting and teaching, I’ve accumulated quite a few fantastic tricks. I love it when I’m teaching a class and a student declares “I love that tip!” So, I’ve decided to dig into my knitting bag of tricks and put them all into one class. From how to do a better SSK, make matching size YO’s, to how to avoid the gap at the end of a bind off, how to tighten your first stitch, how to make better neck divides, and more! Get ready to find your new favorite knitting tricks!"

SKILLS: Must know how to knit, purl, cast on, bind off and simple increases and decreases.

FINISHING SEAMS SIMPLE!

Patty says, "Has the fear of finishing stopped you from knitting a sweater, or are you unhappy with your seams on accessories? Proper finishing is the difference between hand made and home made.  Master the simple skills needed for the perfect finish. We will learn all the basic seaming techniques such as mattress stitch, shoulder graft and more. We’ll also look at picking up stitches horizontally, vertically and around a neck line. Don’t stop short of a perfect finish!"

SKILLS: Must know how to knit, purl, cast on, bind off
