One hour class for $25
I will cover the basic stitches, how to find and read a pattern, and everything you need to know about starting a project. I will also give you a pattern to take home. I have plenty of yarn and needles if you don’t have your own. Economical choices of yarn can cost $2-3 per skein, and a hook at Walmart is $2.

I will teach the part two class at the same time the next day.

 

Blankets and Beanies and Babies Oh MY!
https://www.facebook.com/events/1474779462576726/
This class is $35 for an hour because I will be going over three big projects. Once you learn them you can make them in no time. This class I will go over the patterns of blankets, beanies, and diaper covers. Blankets take a while to make, but they make wonderful presents for loved ones.

Erica Katherine Stewart

Erica was born and raised in Cleveland, TN. She went to Bradley Central High School where she graduated with honors. She married her high school sweetheart, Patrick Stewart (not the actor), in 2014 and they have been together for almost eight years now. They have two spoiled rotten cats, a brother and sister named Digby and Daisy. They spend most of their time together going on adventures or hanging out at their house in the country. Erica graduated from Cleveland State Community College in 2016 and spent one year in the Sculpture Program at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga where she was awarded the 2017-2018 Lessie Peeler McKay Scholarship. Erica for many years had considered herself an “all over artist”, and she kind of still is, but she has found a niche in fiber arts that she wishes to explore. She deals with crochet, needle felting, plaster sculpture work, environmental works, domestic objects, the battle between art and craft, and recently the battle with feminism and housewifery. She is still learning and growing as an artist and will continue to be “all over”. She now has a studio at the Cleveland WorkSpace, deka_studios! To check out her work, you can like her page on facebook, Erica Katherine Stewart. Instagram, deka_studios, or come on down to Cleveland and see deka_studios for yourself!

Claudia Hoffer

Claudia taught herself how to knit when she was eleven years old. After knitting everyone in her family scarves and hats, she started teaching herself how to crochet and has been unstoppable ever since. She has been mastering and combining the techniques of both styles and has been teaching herself how to design and knit and/or crochet clothes.
Claudia has always been creating, “Ever since I was little, I remember making things. Whether it’s drawing, making jewelry, painting, I always had my hands full.”
After graduating from college, Claudia began receiving orders from family and friends to make them handmade items. She started Invisible Accidents to share her designs with people worldwide. The name Invisible Accidents comes from the beauty of handmade clothing, the mistakes or mis-stitches that may even be invisible to the untrained eye. Her pieces can be found  at invisibleaccidents.etsy.com and she can be reached through etsy or invisibleaccidents@gmail.com to discuss custom orders.

Jaime Barks

Jaime Barks is an artist residing in Cleveland, TN.  She uses her art as a way to express her feelings and thoughts in a visual form. Jaime often explores the role of faith and religion in southern culture by incorporating bible pages into her works. She believes that art is central to the human experience and that it helps us to understand and process the world we live in.  Art gives people a platform to express their hopes, fears and joys.  Through art Jaime hopes to find a way to empower and inspire people to see both the beauty and the brokenness that surrounds us all.  As a primarily self-taught artist, most of Jaime’s inspiration is drawn from nature.  She feels most at peace when she is outside. In addition to her studio work, Jaime is an avid sketch artist, public art advocate and community volunteer.  She currently serves on the board of Girls on the Run Southeast TN and is also an active member of both the Greenway Public Art Committee and Allied Arts.   In 2015 Jaime completed a public art mural on the Cleveland/Bradley Greenway. You can learn more about Jaime and her work on her website jaimebarks.com.
