Screen Shot 2015-01-15 at 3.17.31 PM We are so incredibly excited to welcome Maggie Jackson, the award-winning, international designer of MaggiKnits from Ireland for her first visit to Rockville. Far from what might be considered 'typical' knitting, Maggie's unique creations incorporate everything from home decor, shawls that can be draped and pinned in a variety of ways to create different looks, sweaters and more. View her collections. We'd love for you to join us February 27-March 1 for an enchanting weekend with Maggie! Sign up for the full weekend and receive a special discount! Fashion Show: Friday, February 27 from 6-8 PM; $15 (includes wine and nibbles) Start your evening with wine and nibbles followed by a fashion show of approximately 40 garments. Maggie will give tips on drape and hang with styles that make you look taller and slimmer. Have fun trying on the samples afterward and enjoy Maggie's Irish sense of humor! Sign up! Oh No! Not Another Scarf!: Saturday, February 28 from 11:30 AM-5:30 PM; $155 (includes lunch and $20 materials fee) Spend all day creating Maggie's signature stitches like rag knots, tubes, splits and the ladder stitch. You will create a sampler piece that can be turned into a scarf, purse or table runner. This project will be your special creation and design, with the guidance of Maggie and her unique ideas. Plus, you'll learn additional finishing techniques necessary to make your project an amazing success. Sign up! Wearable Art: Sunday, March 1 from 9 AM-3 PM; $155 (includes lunch and $20 materials fee) Learn new stitches that take you beyond the previous workshop! Maggie takes you several steps further and teaches you even more of her interesting textures, stitches and techniques with great ideas on using up your stash and mixing it with new yarns. Ramping things up a notch, you'll learn how to incorporate other materials to expand your creativity with 2-colored frilled tubes, bows, 2-colored picot tubes and much more. Maggie will help you broaden your horizon and create a whole new style of knitting! Sign up!
