Knitting Lace in Intarsia: The Secrets of Olga Fedorova DVD
With Galina Khmeleva and Lisa Shroyer
Learn the long-held secrets of one of the best Orenburg knitters in the world! The beauty of Orenburg lace knitting was almost lost during the early 20th century in Russia. Thankfully, a few women kept the tradition alive, resurrecting and passing it on the next generation.
Join knitting experts Lisa Shroyer and Galina Khmeleva and learn how Galina met her late mentor, Olga Fedorova. Olga taught her special tips and techniques to a select few and gave Galina her blessing to share these secrets with knitters around the world. Now is your chance to learn these well-kept secrets and keep alive the beauty and craftsmanship that goes into creating delicate Orenburg lace shawls.
In this video workshop, you will learn Olga's special techniques to create two-color Orenburg lace in intarsia, as well as receive Galina's pattern for a beautiful shawl, designed for knitters new to the technique. You'll learn the basics of how to knit this gorgeous shawl, as well as Olga's secret intarsia color join, a short-row mitered corner for intarsia lace, managing yarn bobbins with a handmade lazy susan, and more.
You'll love sitting down with Galina for tea and exploring Russian culture as well as how such beautiful and delicate shawls were created in a time of hardship. Take a peek through Galina's shawl collection, the largest collection of two-color Orenburg lace in the world, and learn what makes each shawl a priceless heirloom.
As a special bonus, watch Galina and Lisa prepare Olga's signature recipe for blinis, traditional Russian pancakes with a secret ingredient. Cook alongside Galina and Lisa with the included recipe.
