One session: Sunday, March 24 from 10am to 5pm

You asked, we answered...for both knitters and crocheters! In this workshop, needle arts designer & guru Margaret Hubert will guide you in details and techniques to make your finished garments look more professional and polished... “hand made” not “home made”. Includes different methods of seaming, picking up stitches, casting on and binding off, inserting zippers, setting in sleeves and much more. Students may bring in a garment that needs a little help in finishing. (And seriously, who else do you know that is in the Crochet Hall of Fame?)

Margaret Hubert started in the needle arts business in 1963, as co-owner of a small yarn shop. When the shop closed 12 years later, she became the needlework instructor at Bloomingdale’s in White Plains, New York. Since that time, she has written 31 books, including her latest which was released last summer: One-Piece Knits (June 2018).

Other recent publications include:

Her designs have been featured in myriad knit and crochet publications, including Interweave Knits, Crochet, Crochet!, Creative Knitting, Belle Armoire, Simply Crochet, as well as many hardcover books. Margaret also has two tutorial DVDs out, on Free-Form Knitting and Free-Form Crochet.

While Margaret teaches knitting and crocheting workshops all over the country, she continues to teach in her local yarn shop (LYS) in Pawling, New York, where she has taught for the past 18 years. She loves all aspects of both knitting and crocheting, but combining knitting and crochet in free-form designs is her passion.  

And yes, Margaret has been inducted into The Jean Leinhauser CGOA Crochet Hall of Fame.

Another new book is in the works, though the contents and title are still under wraps. Watch this space!
