Common Threads

Common Threads is an opportunity to gather together and create every Thursday night. It gives us the opportunity to share our skills, knowledge and support. There are two different offerings for the Thursday evening sessions – Open Studio nights where you work on your own personal projects or Techniques nights at which specific techniques, skills or practices in needle craft are taught. Join us for a social evening where you can practice your craft.

Open Studio – Bring in whatever project you are working on, knitting, crochet, felting, rug hooking or sewing, and spend some time in the company of others sharing tips, tricks and encouragement. Sewing machines, the steam iron and work tables are available for use. Jennifer Triemstra-Johnston is on hand for advice with sewing and creative questions. $20 per session.

Techniques – A class that focuses on a specific techniques, skills or practices in needle craft, fibre art and sewing. Classes are led by Jennifer Triemstra-Johnston who has taught costume, fashion and fibre art classes for over 20 years. Each session she will introduce you to a different technique and you will have the opportunity to create a little project or sample to take home. Topics include millinery, sewing, embroidery, felting, beading and fabric surface design. Classes cost $30 plus a small materials fee ($5-10). No experience necessary.
