Tuesday, March 6 & 13 | 5:30-7:00pm

Teacher: Kim Hamlin

($25 tuition, $25 materials)

If you want to learn how to knit cables, but aren't ready to embark on a large project just yet (or maybe you just want the cutest cozy in town) than this is the class for you! In the first class Kim will teach you how to use a 9" circular needle to knit in the round. We will then, slowly but surely, wade our way into the realm of cable stitches. Don't worry, it's way easier than you think! Students will have a week to finish knitting their project at home, before we meet again. 

In our second class, we will learn how to use duplicate stitch- a decorative stitching technique worked on top of stockinette stitch- to make a the fox design.

You must know how to cast on/off and knit/purl confidently for this class.

Materials provided. (Includes yarn, 9" circular knitting needle and cable needle) Please bring a tapestry needle.

The gauge for this pattern is 20 stitches = 4" in stockinette stitch with worsted weight yarn. Since knitters have a variety of individual tensions, we've included several needle sizes for you to choose from. If you're not sure what needle size is best for you, the pattern suggests a size 7. (Kim uses a 5!)

Fox fabric pin cushions will be available for purchase, if you like our sample photo.

Wild Crafted Basketry

Wild Crafted Basketry
65.00

Saturday, March 10 | 9am-3pm

Teacher: Rebecca May Verrill

In this hands-on workshop we will explore an introduction to traditional basket weaving techniques with round, wild harvested, flexible fibers. In the first hour or so of the workshop we will travel to local low-lying areas and cut our own materials for immediate wet-weave use upon returning to Fiber & Vine.

Instructor will provide some pre-harvested materials; however, the nature of this project is for the maker to establish a connection with their own materials. Wonderful organic variations in size, color, texture and form will occur!


Students will be guided through an introduction to one specific style of harvest basket with a built-in handle, ideal for carrying to a farmers market or out to the garden.  Depending on size and ease of use with the materials, each student should be able to complete the bulk of the basket (and the knowledge of how to complete it afterward if time doesn’t allow) within the workshop.


Examples and stages of development, as well as different styles of baskets will be shared, as will many different resources to encourage and inspire future weaving projects. It is highly likely that participants will leave this workshop with a new way of seeing the landscape around them and never leave home without a pair of snippers in their backpack or glovebox.

Small, hand-held pruners or garden shears, gloves and waterproof boots are recommended. Adequate hand strength, creative openness and a positive attitude are the only requirements.

There will be a short break for lunch. Feel free to pack a lunch or grab food nearby.

No previous printing experience is necessary.

Bead weaving is easy on this simple loom. In this class, we’ll show you how to loom a seed-bead bracelet from start to finish.

You’ll learn how to add a button-and-loop clasp, so you can leave the workshop wearing your hand-loomed bracelet. (You also get to keep your loom!)

Coiled Fabric Baskets

Coiled Fabric Baskets
75.00

Saturday, June 16 | 10am-3pm

$75 (includes $5 for materials)

Teacher: Patt Pasteur

Patt calls her coiled baskets "pottery without the breakage" and takes inspiration from clay pots seen in the American southwest.  100 % cotton fabric, cut into strips, are wrapped around cord and sewn on the sewing machine. The technique is based on the ancient method of making ceramic coiled pots, as well as coiled basketry.

In this one day workshop, each student will complete at least one basket. You will learn the tricks of shaping and sewing a basket directly on the sewing machine. You will learn how to wrap cord, how to start and end a basket, as well as how to add embellishments. A variety of baskets will be presented as inspiration for what you can make. Pat will also have some materials available for purchase, to help you start a second basket in the workshop or at home.

There will be a short break for lunch. You can bring your own food or visit one of the many restaurants nearby.

 

Please Bring

  • Sewing machine with a zig zag stitch (a few sewing machines will be available for students, let us know if you do not have your own.)
  • Sewing machine needle made for thick fabric or jeans 100/16
  • Cotton All Purpose Thread
  • Scissors
  • Small ruler
  • 1 yard cotton fabric (I will also provide prepared wrapped cord for a small fee if you don’t bring your own fabric).  Don’t buy heavy fabric: you want fabric that’s easy to wrap around clothes line.
  • If you bring your own fabric, please bring a cutting mat, rotary cutter, and fabric glue
  • Tape (I like to use the blue painter’s tape)
  • Buttons or beads
  • Sewing needle

Patt Pasteur is a full time mixed-media artist living on Cold Stream Pond north of Bangor. She has been designing coiled baskets for 9 years which are featured at the Center of Maine Crafts in Gardiner.  Patt is a professional member of the Maine Crafts Guild and the Maine Craft Association.

Did you know that the Cabernet Sauvignon grape is the "child" of two older grapes: Cabernet Franc (red) and Sauvignon Blanc (white)? Some crosses, like this one, happen naturally through pollination and others are man made, like Pinotage.

 

This First Friday we'll be pouring 4 "parent" grapes followed by their "offspring." it's going to be a fun one, with everyone holding two glasses at once because... you know... learning!
