Due to officers being on Feb 12th, Needleworkers and the Class has been
moved to February 19th. Hopefully this will not be a problem for anyone who
has already shown interest in class
For those interestest, please let me know so I can make sure we have enough
room for everyone. I have received notice from 3 so far.
"Viking Chain Knitting" aka "Trichinopoly Chainwork" Class at the normally
planned Needleworker's, Monday, February 19th at 7pm at Faolan's house.
Adalia "Nyx" VonDerBerg will be teaching the class.
Here is a document that gives information on what class will be about.
Nyx will bring the necessary supplies for up to 36 people to try this
jewelry technique. However, if anyone would like to bring their own
supplies or donate to the cause, the supply list (for beginners) is very
simple: small set of pliers (needle nose and wire cutters), 1 package of
colored - usually green - 18 gauge floral wire (this comes usually in pieces
of about 18"), 1 roll of 24 or 26 gauge silver floral wire (from Michael's
this sells for about 2 bucks for a
quarter pound - enough to make SEVERAL trials), and pencils - unsharpened or
dowel rods of the same diameter .She personally uses a size 10 plastic
knitting needle but once used for this, they would not be usable for actual
knitting. The purpose of stick is to help the loops stay the same size and
shape so any round object will work.
The class plan is to work on starting chain , work a few chain stitches,
work on adding more wire in, and then work on ending the chain. This class
will be for creating chains only, not adding the findings for finishing
them. There will be some examples of finished work and some store names so
people can order their own findings if they choose.
