Whatever your experience with and comfort level towards Tunisian, we invite you to a come to the meeting on Saturday November 12th 2:30pm at Borealis Yarn and learn more. Maxine will lead us through creating a Tunisian washcloth with Julie and Barbara assisting. By the end of the meeting, everyone should be well on their way to completing a sampler that shows some of the beautiful stitches available in Tunisian. You'll go home with a nice project plus a handout with instructions for all the stitches as well as links to videos and other web resources specifically for Tunisian.
For this meeting, you're need to bring the following items:
- Approximately 1 to 2 ounces of worsted weight yarn - 100% cotton is great if you really want to use the sampler as a washcloth. One small skein of "kitchen cotton" will be a gracious plenty for one or two samplers - Peaches & Creme brand or Sugar'n Cream brand are usually available at stores such as Jo-Ann Fabrics & Crafts, Michaels, or even some Walmarts.
- A Tunisian hook size J10 6.00mm if you can find one (some of the Jo-Ann Fabrics & Crafts stores do stock them). If not, bring a regular J10 hook (Susan Bates, Boye, or other brand with a shaft the same diameter as the rest of the hook) and, using the magic of a simple household item (a plastic straw - there will plenty the right size at the meeting), you'll be able to make your own Tunisian hook in 5 seconds flat.
