10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Explore the design possibilities of sweaters made with rectangles, triangles, circles, or half circles. From finding inspiration to testing an idea with fleece to taking your idea to the next level, Norah takes you through her design process and shares her current obsession with making innovative garments (yet wearable) garments where fit isn't a big issue. Learn how to make modern garments with geometric shapes, then drape new ideas in polar fleece and customize your design to fit. Class Supplies: 2 yards of solid colored polar fleece, scissors, permanent markers, duck tape, graph paper, pencil, eraser.


2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Norah will describe her process of coming up with new pattern stitches and talk about the process involved in designing the final product. Explore taking a pattern stitch and making it your own. Students who aren't ready to alter pattern stitches or make up their own can focus on finding the perfect pattern stitch for their chosen yarn.
