Two new classes at Can Do Books

Pin Cushion 

Learn to make this adorable pin cushion from scratch. Joyce will show you how to construct the base, knit the roof, embellish the house with embroidery and appliqué, and put it all together. All supplies are included in the price. The only prerequisite is that you know how to thread a needle. Being able to knit is an advantage, but not essential.

Soap Making 

The other workshop we have planned is Soap Making. Learn to create soap that is fragrance- and colour-free using products and equipment that are readily available from your local supermarket or hardware store. You really won’t want to use commercial soap again.

Handmade soap samples

You will learn all about safety, equipment, ingredients and recipes and go home with 500 g of pure vegetable oil soap. Then you will have to be patient as the soap will take 4-6 weeks to cure before you can use it.
If you are near the shop drop in for a sample piece of the soap so that you can try it for yourself.

Great workshops! But I'd love one in knitting sox! Would it be possible to organise one or two of those? Thanks!

I will see what we can do. The trouble with knitting is you need to practice and practice some more when you learn a new knitting technique and this would make a knitting workshop long and expensive.
Have you thought about joining our knitting group http://www.meetup.com/Looped/
