October 06, 2013

Anne Weil is a dear friend and extraordinary creative genius behind the blog flaxandtwine. We met during several online creative business classes and then met in person at a retreat a few years ago. Last year Anne joined us at Create Explore Discover to teach a course on knitting scarves. It was awesome. Anne is returning this year to teach three separate courses on crochet, knitting and embroidery hoops. She is a talented artist, incredible teacher and I am so honored to share her skills and talent for a 2nd year at the retreat. Please note: you do not need to have a knowledge of crochet to join this class. Anne is such a great teacher that she had non knitters, knitting last year and being successful in their projects.

Her first course offering on Saturday, October 19 from 9:00am – Noon is called:

Sweetest Custom Crochet Pillowcases

In this course, you will decorate your favorite pillowcases with the ultimate in hand made luxury–a crocheted lace edging.  Sweet and old fashioned, yet modern and fresh, too, crochet is the ultimate way to add a special handmade touch to your home goods.  Learn two different crochet edges to adorn all of your favorite pieces at home–café curtains, sheets, pillowcases, or a canvas tote–the possibilities are endless. The crochet edges use simple stitches and require only a very basic knowledge of crochet.

There are still some spots available for the weekend and a few day passes for Saturday and Sunday. We would love to have you join us and share in the classic beauty of Annes’ design sense and instruction.
