Handwoven Bracelets with Jillian Moreno
Tuesday, December 12, 5-8pm • $87 (all materials included)
Teacher: Jillian Moreno
Curious about weaving? Love unique jewelry and have some stash yarns you’d like to use up? Come weave a bracelet with Jillian! Hand-dyed yarn looks amazing woven and makes creative and distinctive jewelry. Using a variety of yarns, wild or mild, you’ll get a little taste of weaving and go home with your first bracelet and the knowledge to make more. You’ll be using (and taking home) US-made birch looms from Purl & Loop that are specially designed for weaving jewelry. And while you’re making your bracelets, you’ll be talking with Jillian about combining yarns for color, mixing textures and sizes of yarn, great yarns to use for bracelets, types of bracelet closures, embellishing your bracelet, and so on. Come and play and make something gorgeous!
• Feel free to bring along yarn scraps from home, the wilder the better, or you can use yarn from the class stash.

Jillian Moreno is passionate about making things with handspun yarn. She is perpetually curious and loves to dissect creative processes. She loves to inspire other spinners to think a little differently. Jillian is the editor of Knittyspin and Ad Manager and Catalyst of Knitty Magazine. This means she is often the brains behind the exciting new ideas implemented at Knitty and is a key part of the success the magazine has enjoyed over the past 12 years.
She is a regular contributor to Ply Magazine, and currently sits on the editorial board.
Jillian has been a knitter forever, and a spinner almost as long. She knits, stitches, crochet and sometimes weaves with her handspun yarn. She touches fiber everyday.
She may or may not be working on a spinning book for Storey Publishing to be published in 2016.
She likes vintage dresses, British murder mysteries and if you ever go into a bookstore with her, don't expect to leave empty handed.
She lives in a house well insulated with fiber and books in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
