Teaching, Tunisian, and Tales


June 2021


Tunisian Crochet-A-Long


Join Tina on the BlackSheep Fiber Emporium YouTube channel for a video series Tunisian Crochet-A-Long using the Venus Shawl by Aiobhe Ni. This lovely lacy Tunisian Shawl is great practice for your Tunisian Crochet skills. While Toni picked Ginger Twist, Tina is using Teresa Ruch 10/2. Tina is already planning a second project from Aiobhe Ni in our Gleem Lace.  



Take A Class!

Kelli is teaching several classes online including: Beginning Shuttle Tatting, Beginning Lace Knitting, Oops! Do I Have to Knit it Again?, and Estonian Lace Knitting.  Plus Tina is looking for the perfect date in July to hold an in-person dyeing class.  If you are local and interested in the dyeing class, send her a message to suggest a date.  Click the title to check out our class list.



In-Person Groups Are Back

If you are local, our in-person groups are back!  Join Tina on Thursday nights from 6:30-8pm and again on Saturday mornings from 10:30am-12pm for in-person groups. Groups meet in the backyard, so bring a project and hang out. 



Slow Yarn Crawl is On!

Don't know what the Slow Crawl is?  Check out this link to www.slowcrawl.com for more info.  Essentially it's 32 shops, 50 patterns, and a whole summer to crawl with prizes, patterns, and fun. Whether you choose to crawl in-person or online, this is a slooooowwww crawl, giving you plenty of time to finish.
