Get Your Daily Dose of Fiber with Our FREE Webinar

Have you ever gotten into a habit and wondered, why in the world do I even do it this way any more? Get back to the basics of knitting with Tanis Gray during her FREE preview webinar All about Fiber: Yarn Composition, Dyeing Methods & Making the Right Fiber Choice for Your Next Knitted Project on August 13, 2013 at 5 pm EDT. Tanis will be joining us live so you can ask her all of your fiber questions directly during the one hour free preview. 

She'll be discussing the differences between plant and animal fiber, non-traditional fibers like raffia and twine, and the basics of yarn weight and gauge. All of these techniques combined will help you to determine which is the best fiber to use for your next knitting project. You'll quickly notice that smarter fiber choices will lead to knitwear that fits great and lasts forever.

Course Outline:

 The webinar is broadcasted via the internet with live audio delivered through your computer speakers or over your telephone. The live webinar’s visual presentation is displayed directly from the Presenter's computer to your computer screen. The Q&A is managed through a chat-style submission system with questions being read and answered by the Presenter for the entire class to hear. In the event some questions are not answered during the live session, an e-mail with questions and answers will be sent to all webinar attendees. By attending the live webinar and/or asking questions, your full name may be stated during the live event and captured in the recording.

All you need is a computer or iOS device, and an internet connection. You’ll be able to view the presentation and listen to the audio over computer speakers; however, you’ll enjoy much better audio quality if you use a telephone. See below for complete system requirements.
