THIS IS AN ONLINE CLASS via ZOOM, so you will also need to have a decent internet connection and download the free ZOOM app. Instructions will be emailed before 1st class.

The second of Holli's two zipper workshops.  While these two classes can stand on their own, together they will revolutionize the knitter’s approach to zippers.

Learn a few ways to insert a zipper into your hand knits without any stretching or warping. They all begin with a latch hook tool (supplied in class along with a zipper). This class is a game changer. There’s no longer any reason to be afraid of patterns with zipped closures.

INSTRUCTOR: Holli Yeoh of Holli Yeoh Designs

Holli feels strongly about fine craftsmanship, believing that while there’s more than one right way to do things, it’s important to do it right! To this end, she teaches skills that enable knitters to feel justified pride in their finished objects, while accommodating different knitting styles and preferences. Students leave her workshops with an arsenal of valuable techniques, deep understanding of the choices to be made in knitting, and new confidence.
