Class #2

Get Help With Your Knitting

Joan Sheridan

May 1 - May 1, 2022

instructor imageKnitters all have “those projects,” the projects that languish in the bottom of the knitting bag because something stopped them. Often, it’s because they didn’t understand the instructions, sometimes it’s a new stitch, or perhaps it’s finished and just needs to be put together, and they aren’t quite sure how to approach it.

In this class, you’ll finish those UFOs (unfinished objects) and, perhaps, even start a new one that you’ve always wanted to try, but just needed a knitting coach at your side. Joan will be your knitting coach, and as problems are solved around the classroom, you’ll learn new tips and tricks that will increase your knitting skills and make you a more confident knitter. From lace to cables, colorwork to double-knitting, or simply tackling your first pair of socks, this class is all about you being successful in your chosen knitting project or projects.

Joan Sheridan is a knitter, weaver, spinner, fiber explorer and, since 2000, owner of Heritage Spinning and Weaving in Lake Orion, Michigan. Trained as an educator and curriculum developer by the United States Army, Joan is a natural teacher. She volunteers in the textile conservation department at The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan, where she combines her passion for textiles with her fascination with history. Joan has taught and presented at conferences, for guilds and shops, and on tour in Norway. She has had articles and patterns published in several magazines. Her more than 70 original knitting patterns can be found on Ravelry. She specializes in building solid foundations for knitters and weavers so they can take their skills and soar.

Joan will contact students prior to class and will discuss supplies and personalize them for you.
