Don't miss this Marling "Deep Dive" Sept. 22, 29 & Oct. 6
Marling master/celebrity instructor Cecelia Campochiaro is returning to Lofty Lou's to offer her introductory "deep dive" into marling on Zoom!
This 3-session virtual class on September 22, 29 and October 6, 3-4pm, will cover Common Thread, Bridging, and Swapping a Strand. If you're unfamiliar with marling, it's a simple form of colorwork that yields amazing results. Knitting with two strands of different colors at a time, you'll work up a subtle, sophisticated fabric with shades and hues that ebb and flow.
Cost is just $75. Stop by or call us at 530-642-2270 to reserve your spot today!
P.S. Once you "get your feet wet" with this series, take Cecelia's DEEPER DIVE October 20 and 27. (Students must have taken the Deep Dive to take the Deeper Dive.)
