Karen Cragg

We are delighted to welcome Karen Cragg, a local yarn shop owner as a tutor at Nottingham Yarn Expo. Karen will be teaching her fantastic Blankets Workshop as well as exhibiting.

In this workshop you will make a blanket that is composed of knitted blocks, these will include samples of different stitches that may be embellished with beautiful beading techniques. Karen will give you the confidence to experiment with stitches that you have yet to encounter, including texture, lace, cabling and beading.

Karen will walk you through effective blocking techniques that will give your finished blanket that professional look you desire.

This is a fabulous workshop that will give you the skills to create your own heirloom that you will be sure to cherish!
