We will be offering informal open house style introductions to tools in our library.
Knitting machines come in a variety of shapes and sizes for different kinds of projects. We will be demonstrating an Addi Express- a circular knitting machine, and a Brother kx-350 which knits flat panels.
The Silhouette CAMEO uses a small blade to cut over 100 materials, including paper, cardstock, vinyl, and fabric. The CAMEO has the ability to register and cut printed materials and is PixScan™ compatible. (Unfortunately due to staffing issues we will have to re-schedule the CAMEO demo. We are terribly sorry for the inconvenience!)
This is an opportunity to get some hands on experience and to learn about some of the ways you can use these tools to take your creative process further.
Sign up with a suggested donation $5 ticket, RSVP with a free ticket, or make a donation to Fiber Arts Boston
We supply all of the tools and materials, you make Knitted Knockers and/or NICU Octopods that we will mail to the proper charities. Hang out with fellow crafters, enjoy free snacks, and Craft for a Cause!
