A Piece of Ewe is excited to welcome Cori Eichelberger from irocknits.com to Bay City in March for two dynamic and inspirational workshops!

50 SHADES OF SWEATERS
When: Saturday, March 28th 11 AM - 3 PM
Price: $45 (includes lunch & $10 gift certificate toward purchases that day)


Never knit a sweater? Knit a few sweaters but none of them fit quite right? A chance to look at construction styles of 50 sweaters; along with yarn choices, will allow students in the class to really visually “see” what they may like or dislike about a sweater they plan to knit. How to fix a gaping neckline? What about if a sweater is too long? What if the sleeves are too short? Can a hand-knit sweater actually make you look thinner? 

In this 3-hour workshop, Cori will give you ideas for things you’ve never heard of doing to get a sweater to fit you superbly.  She’ll show you why some sweaters look great on everyone and will talk about why some sweaters will never fit anyone well, even though we love the look of them. These tips and more all in one place at one time and you can try them all on!


50 SHADES OF SHAWLS
When: Sunday, March 29th 11 AM - 3 PM 
Price: $45 (includes lunch & $10 gift certificate toward purchases that day)
 

Don’t knit shawls because you don’t think you’d ever wear one? Knit a few shawls but don’t wear them? Maybe it’s all in the styling or the construction of the shawl you’ve chosen. Here’s a one time, one afternoon, chance to take a look at the world of knitted shawls - from different constructions to yarn choices, color choices as well as styling options.

And let’s also include that worrisome garment that some call a poncho. And perhaps that generous stole or scarf that might be languishing on the needles, let’s get it knit in a way that you’ll love with just a few ingenious ideas that might turn you into a shawl fashionista. Anything you wear around your neck will be modeled and discussed with tips and tricks to make your shawl knitting a must-have!  This is a 3-hour workshop.
