As a competition judge Carole knows the secret things judges look for: blocking, seaming, and other finishing touches.
Learn the ultimate finishing touch of correct blocking to give your handwork a professional appearance. Bring a garment, swatch or other knit or crochet item if you wish to do hands-on blocking. Learn how to block raised designs such as cables, ribbing, or embellishments without ruining the effect. A Jiffy Steamer will be demonstrated. Special emphasis will be given to natural fibers, but methods can be applied to knits of any fiber content. Experience the “TLF” (tender-loving-feel) of your knit fabric!
After blocking the class will focus on seaming. Techniques like "Invisible Seaming,” grafting methods, latching seams for a lacy effect, and other master touches will be taught. Participants will receive seaming needles, latch tools and an idea booklet of Duplicate Stitch instructions to take home.

Students should bring: Participants can bring a garment, swatch or other knit item for blocking.
