The workshop on the 13th was wonderful - there were some beautiful parasols made (check out my facebook page for pictures). Those of you signed up for the 27th are in for a treat! Beth is a wonderful instructor and I guarantee you will leave with something to be proud of!!
Concerning the workshop on the 27th I have recieved checks from the following:
Rose Marie Favors
I have also received requests to attend from the following:
If I have left your name off the list, please let me know ASAP. Beth needs as much notice as possible in order to have the handles made.
The workshop on August 27th will be at Eastview Baptist Church, 1430 Gordon Rd, Rockhill, SC
The website is:
The contact for this workshop is Kimberly Herndon and she can be reached at: (803) 230-2146
Kimberly has graciously offered to prepare a light lunch for everyone.
Class will begin at 9AM and will run to about 4:00 or so. On the 13th we worked steady all day, a brief break for lunch and were completed and cleaned up by 4:30.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
1 to 1.5 yards of fabric for the outside of the parasol
1 to 1.5 yards of fabric for the inside of the parasol
thread to match - I found that a button thread or a hand quilting thread was helpful though not required
lots of straight pins - strong ones!
Again, Beth has done a wonderful job of putting this together and you will be very pleased with what you accomplish! Thank you Beth!!

Posted May, 13, 2011 Reference Knitting Book,
I just found this last night - a collection of knitting books from the collection of Richard Rutt. If you were at the knitting workshop I shared Mr. Rutt's book which is an excellent resource. This collection is part of what he based HIS book on!!! Some of these are already available through google books, but some are not! Enjoy and happy looking!!!!
I see many hours of perusing and trying to decide on my next project - the pineapple bag has become the front runner as of now....

posted 4/30/2011 ADDENDUM:
Ladies, the mini workshop will take place from 3-5pm at Roseanne Christie's tent fly, which will be located in the alcove to the left after you cross the little bridge.
Please note there has been a change in the cost of the kits: $6 for members and $11 for non members. The price of materials was a bit more than originally anticipated.
Again, if you are planning to attend or would like to purchase one of the kits, please email Lynn at email@example.com. She needs a head count so she will know how many kits to put together.

Do you need something to do at events that is period correct?
Have you wanted to learn to knit, but never had the opportunity?
At Rivers Bridge, the PSRS will be hosting a mini-workshop to learn the basics of knitting. You will have the
opportunity to make yourself a braided scarf as seen in Peterson's, 1860. I have attached the pattern and will
have an example of it at the flag/sleeping caps workshop on Jan. 15th.
You will need a minimum of 2 colors to complete this scarf (3 is also acceptable) and wooden needles (size 6, 7 or 8).
I will be ordering yarn from Knit Picks (www.knitpicks.com) in Palette this Saturday. If you would like me to
order the yarn for you, please let me know what colors you would like (see below for email and/or phone number).
Each ball of yarn is $2.25 (to help with shipping) and will be collected at Rivers Bridge.
FYI - 2 balls of Palette will make more than one scarf - you will have a gracious plenty left for another project,
a gift or to start your own stash!
If you prefer to use your own yarn, please consider a 100% wool, no heavier than sport weight yarn. A fingering
weight is ideal.
Even if you know how to knit, please join us - share your love of knitting and enjoy the fellowship!
Refreshments are being graciously provided by Mrs. Kathleen Harris. Please bring a glass or tea cup.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call me or email me.
Denise Weimer has put together a wonderful website with includes videos of different dances. It is well worth a click to check it out.
