Where: Over The Rainbow Yarn, 18 School Street, Rockland, Maine

How Much: $75

Mawatta (also called silk hankies) is silk cocoons stretched and layered in a square shape.  In this class, Stephanie will show you how to pull these delicate layers into strands you can knit straight from the “hankie” to make mittens, hats, baby sweaters, anything you want.  Mawatta is an inexpensive and intriguing way to dabble in silk knitting.

When: Sunday, November 3, 2012, 1 pm-4 pm

Where: Over The Rainbow Yarn, 18 School Street, Rockland, Maine

How Much: $75

(There will be a $12 materials fee for the mawatta)

    How will we pick up our tickets if we reserve on line as I just did here….at the door? Thank you and I”m looking forward to it!

      We are not actually printing tickets, Becky. We’ll have a list at the door and you are already on it. We’ll be giving away door prizes that will be randomly drawn, so we’ll be giving you a numbered raffle type ticket for that. We’ll also be giving away a limited number of grab bags to the early comers. We’re so looking forward to seeing you there.
