If you want to take a workshop from Holli in your city, let your local Guild or LYS know! I love traveling to different cities to meet knitters, teach them new skills and give them the confidence to tackle their next big project.

Book Holli for a workshop.

Fine Finishing Techniques

I’m teaching a series of workshops that cover the ins and outs of transforming your projects from ‘home made’ to ‘hand knit.’ You’ve spent all that time knitting a beautiful garment, now don’t skimp on the finishing. You’ll learn finishing techniques that rival commercially made garments and you’ll have the confidence to tackle sweater projects.

Three stand-alone workshops, two hours each. You can take one of them, or all of them.
