Westknits Two-Color Brioche Class For Beginners
* * * LOTTERY SIGNUPS OPEN AT 10 AM ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9 * * *
Speckles, bold color, lines, stripes and zig-zags….we are thrilled to announce that we are welcoming designer Stephen West to Northern Michigan on Tuesday, September 27th. We’re one of a select few stops on his brief upcoming U.S. book tour for Westknits Bestknits and we have an amazing day planned for our hive. Read all about the day HERE, including how to win a FREE gift basket, valued at over $250.
Learn the intriguing brioche technique in this colorful workshop taught by the King of Brioche himself, Stephen West! After declaring brioche the stitch of the year for 2015, the technique has gained massive popularity and a cult following. This class will guide you through the two-color cast on and I-cord cast on, brioche knit/purl stitches, and directional increases and decreases. If you have some experience with brioche already, you will be provided with some intermediate stitch patterns and colorwork techniques to explore.
Lottery signups for the class will open on Friday, September 9th, from 10 am to 2 pm EST. To enter the lottery drawing, you must “purchase” a spot by adding this item to your cart. PLEASE include your phone number in the specified field–this is the ONLY way we will contact you for payment if your name is drawn. (You will not be charged for the class until we have confirmed that you have secured a spot.) We will use a random number generator to assign each customer a number and chose our winners. There are 14 available tickets and ONE lucky customer will win a spot in the class–FREE. When we announce our winners, we will call each winner to notify you that you’ve won a spot in the class. You will have exactly 24 hours to call the shop to pay for your class. If we haven’t heard from you in 24 hours, you will lose your spot and we will randomly draw the next person from the lottery.
There are 15 tickets available–14 for purchase and one that will be given to a lottery winner at random. The class will be 3 hours in length and is $99. Exact time will be announced on September 9.
Want to keep up with all the details? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll add you to our newsletter list. There will be many more details to come over the next month (and maybe even a teaser picture or two); we guarantee you won’t want to miss this day with the King of Brioche.
