It’s been three weeks since our last post so it’s well past time to catch up with what’s been happening at Sievers. After a short break in classes over the Fourth of July, Sandy De Master and Mary Germain were here for their Baltic Knitting Extravaganza class. Knitters new to Latvian and Estonian knitting began with a lined, ornament-sized mitten and went on to design their own pair or other project. The hardest part is deciding which of the many great color and motif inspirations to choose!
These mittens deserve a hand (and these hands deserve the mittens)!
What can we say about Rigid Heddle Weaving with Deb Jones? It’s a fast-paced weaving experience, complete with excellent instruction, beautiful yarns, many projects and the special touches Deb brings to each of her classes. You almost wouldn’t believe how much the students accomplished in five days !
At the same time, the Latest, Greatest Quilt class brought continuing and new pieces and with Ellen Graf’s insights and solutions, found creative ways to move each quilt to completion.
This Washington Island summer is going by so fast it’s hard for us to catch up on all the pretty and peaceful sunsets, like this one.
There’s more to catch up on…stay tuned!Share Sievers with Friends...
