A Baker’s Dozen – Finishing Techniques 2

A Baker’s Dozen – Finishing Techniques 2

Instructor: Winnie Glavine

Prerequisite:

This course is suitable for beginners to seasoned rug hookers.

Course Objectives:

To enhance the knowledge and encourage rug hookers to actually ‘finish’ a piece prior to moving on to the next–in particular, knowing how they want to finish the piece they are about to start or are already creating.

Course Outline:

  • A Knitted Border with Wool Fabric (a 6” square completed piece–pattern provided and basic knitting skills)
  • Standing Wool Edge (a 3” x 9” completed or partially completed piece–pattern provided)
  • Two or Three Whipped Cord Binding and Fold Over Finishing (a 6” x 6” completed piece–pattern provided)
  • Eaton Edge–great for a floor sized mat
  • Finishing a Circle (a 6” round completed piece–pattern provided)

If you want to work along with the instructor, some completed or partially completed pieces will be needed, as noted. Patterns will be provided but you are welcome to use your own. Or, you are welcome to bring unfinished, rug hooking completed pieces, but may not have time to finish them in class.

A full list of other items will be available upon registration and instructor will have some supplies available for purchase.
