Some photos of the Irish Crochet Lace workshop held on Saturday last, with Maire Treanor. It was a fabulous day and everybody left with something (or almost something!) .
Maire Treanor’s workshop for 26 May is full, but there is a waiting list so please get in touch in case there are any cancellations. We will be having a similar and very exciting event on 23rd June, so keep in touch!
We still have room on our knitting and crochet classes with Bairbre and Wendy on Thursday evenings – you can either book for one class or a set of four. These classes are ideal for both beginners and improvers.
Sewing classes with Theresa Czerniak of The Sewing Room continue every Wednesday morning at 10.30 and Wednesday evening at 6.30 and every Saturday morning @11.00.
Finally, how would you like to try your hand at wet felting and make a flower (next week it’s felted clutch bag) with Niki Collier of Niki Collier Design on Friday morning at 10.30 am? All materials supplied.
Contact me at 087 996 7197 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details or to enrol.
These ultra fine wires stand apart from anything else on the market today. They are perfect for your fine lace projects - light and delicate, yet incredibly strong and flexible. They are ideal for scalloped or curvy or straight edges. Made from a super-elastic wire with seemingly magical flexibility, they will not rust, tarnish, corrode, or easily kink. They will not stain your knitting, and will last for many years. You can arch and curve these wires as you need, and they will always return to straight. This special property allows these wires to be used over and over again without weakening from repeated bending and straightening. Most of them come in gold, silver or pewter tone.
Also arrived today is a big stock of nickle-plated T-pins
