Boomerang Bags Sewing Bee

You may have noticed that Woven Art now has Boomerang Bags as an option for how you get your purchases from the shop to your home. If you are interested in learning more about the Boomerang Bags Project in the Greater Lansing Area, we are holding a mini sewing bee and information session at the shop. We will construct some bags from start to finish and answer any questions that you might have about the project. 

You don't have to be able to sew to help! We will be cutting, pinning, snipping and ironing, too. If you have a sewing machine, bring it and help with the construction of the bags. If you own and can operate a serger, bring it!

We hope to finish what is needed to meet our end-of-month goal of 50 bags for Allen Farmers Market in Lansing. We don't need many to meet our goal!

Please contact the store to sign up, as we do have space limitations.

There is no charge for this event.
Facilitator: Lynn Schense

Starting on Thursday, June 15th we will be hosting our next KAL - a river otter softie designed by Sara Elizabeth Kellner. Buy the pattern on Ravelry, and pick your yarn! The pattern calls for worsted, but you can knit it with any weight yarn you want.

KAL hours: 3-5 pm, 6-8 pm

We recommend that you try to snag some of East Lansing's very desirable free parking on MAC Avenue, just north of Linden St. By not needing your parking validated you help Woven Art provide free events like this!

You can easily add length to the tee - but make sure to add some yardage to your totals!

Finished Sizes 33 1/2 (37 3/4, 42, 46, 50 1/2, 54 1/2) require 6 (7, 8, 9, 10, 11) skeins of Kestrel.

The Knit-Along will start on Thursday April 20th, and we will host two sessions on Thursday - a daytime session from 3 pm - 5 pm, and an evening session from 6 - 8 pm. We will finish up our KAL on June 1st! We are happy to measure gauge swatches before the KAL begins to make sure you are on gauge and ready to go on April 20th!
