Kay Mather of Rare Purls will instruct a workshop on "How to Successfully Match Your Pattern and Yarn." The workshop will expand on the information presented by Kay at the January AKG guild meeting. Participants will learn about different fibers, their characteristics, and how to select yarn for a project. Participants are encouraged to bring to class unfinished projects where the yarn choice is not working, stash yarn needing a project, or patterns where a substitute yarn is required. Kay will provide assistance selecting a pattern or yarn. This will be a very hands-on, interactive class.

HOMEWORK: Having a computer, tablet or smart phone available to look at Ravelry patterns would be helpful, but is not necessary. Also, please bring to class an unfinished project where the yarn choice is not working, stash yarn needing a project, or patterns where a substitute yarn is required.
