05 Oct New Workshop – Felted Beaver with HBC Cardi!
You may have spied this little beaver sitting in the shop window over the last couple weeks… We think he’d make a lovely gift.
Robertson Davies once wrote how fitting it was that the Canadian national animal was a “dowdy rodent”. But local designer Denise Powell will have none of it. Her adorable stuffed beaver is quite dapper in a woolly cardigan adorned with the traditional colours of the Hudson’s Bay Company.
We’ll be hosting a workshop with Peterborough designer Denise Powell (aka Dr. Knit on Ravelry) who will help guide you through the process. If you’ve never knit a stuffed animal before, never fear! We’ve got you covered. Knitters should have a basic understanding of increases and decreases.
To participate, all you have to do is purchase a kit in the store. They will be available beginning this Saturday October 8.
The kit price of $45 includes all the Alafosslopi required, the pattern, and Denise’s expertise.
Workshops will be held on the following days and kit purchasers can can take advantage of the instruction as needed:
October 16, 1-3pm
October 23, 1-3pm
October 30, 1-3pm
Hope you can join us!
