MIDWEST FIBER ARTS TRAIL
CEDARBURG SPUR WORKSHOP
Basic Tunisian Crochet
by Sheryl Thies
Saturday, March 17, 2018 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
Notch up your creativity, spark your imagination and discover Tunisian crochet. Learn the basic cast on, Tunisian simple stitch (Tss) and how to bind off. Color changes are introduced. Tunisian crochet will take your needlework to a new level. But beware you may get hooked! Knowing how to make a slipknot and a regular crochet chain is helpful but not required.
Students should bring:
- 3 partial skeins of a smooth worsted weight yarn each in a different color
- Size 11/L (8mm) Tunisian crochet hook (can be purchased for $10 in class if you are unable to find elsewhere)
Artist Bio: Sheryl’s passion for combining fiber, texture and color provided teaching opportunities both near and far; from local yarn shops to international waters aboard cruise ships. She is the author of numerous knitting and Tunisian crochet books, published designs in magazines and designs for yarn companies. When not knitting or crocheting, she can often be found on the bocce court either playing or refereeing.
