About the Dyer:
Tiana Cain is an Indianapolis based independent yarn dyer, with a love for bright bold colors on soft lofty yarns. Mrs. Cain is the owner and operator of I Feel Like Dyeing. She runs her business from a home dye studio where she brings all her best ideas to life. Her unique eye for texture & color helps her to distinguish between the good and the great making sure she only brings the best work to the forefront with a knack for the non-traditional and going against the grain. I Feel Like Dyeing’s hand crafted yarns range from subtle colors and light speckling to vibrant bright neons, soft pastels and bold solids. Described as being very eccentric with an eclectic style and this shows through in her work creating yarns to suit the taste of many enthusiasts.

Tiana started dyeing as a hobby and a way to create colors that she desired but couldn’t find in stores. She found it to be a joyous escape, quite addicting and ultimately therapeutic. Dyeing provided her with a great way to decompress. As she continued over time she collected a very nice stash! Tiana, married and the mother of two fur babies would make her way home from a long day at work and say to her husband, “I feel like dyeing!!!” Using color allowed her to express herself without the confines of a particular style or signature look, discerning that if she could sell some of her hand dyed yarn it could keep the hobby going. This was the inception of concept and how the business was born. Knowing how important it is to have control and understanding of the materials that you use, I Feel Like Dyeing opts to whenever possible create unique blends from local fiber mills so that each handcrafted selection is a piece that stands alone. In this vein, Mrs. Cain had been learning and exploring the art of natural dyeing utilizing locally sourced and homegrown colorants.

Mastering the Gauge Swatch @ Michigan Fibre Studio
Mar 5 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

In this workshop the knitter will learn the importance of gauge and how to make a swatch that provides the information to knit a garment that fits perfectly.

Prerequisites: Must know how to knit, purl, cast on, bind off.

Skills Taught: Gauge concepts and how to accurately measure for gauge.

Date and time: Thursday, March 5 from 6p – 9p

Cost: $30.00

Class Size: Minimum of 4 students and a maximum of 8.

No Sweat Knitting Fixes @ Michigan Fibre Studio
Mar 7 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
 

Knitting mistakes are bound to happen from time to time. A twisted stitch here, a dropped stitch there can often stop a knitter in his or her row not knowing quite what to do. And then there are those big mistakes that often result in putting a project in a UFO (unfinished project object) pile. Learning easy ways to fix mistakes, often without ripping back, will keep you knitting and finishing projects.

Prerequisites: This class is for the knitter who has enough experience knitting to recognize mistakes.

Skills Taught: Different fixing processes – tinking, frogging, life lines, picking up stitches, twisted stitches and extra stitches, dealing with missing or too many stitches, reversing leaning decreases and cables.

Dates:
Saturday, March 7 from 10a – 1p

Homework: To be done before session meets. Using a light color worsted weight wool cast on 20 stitches and work in stockinette for 2 inches. Do not bind off.

To bring to class:
Swatch
 Knitting tool kit: crochet hook, cable needle, tapestry needle, small ball of yarn from stash.
Cost: $30.00
Class Size: Maximum of 8 students.

Instructor: Amy Gallmeyer Knitting

***Class Registration Policy***

Payment is due upon time of registration. Class fee is not refundable unless cancellation is made 72 hours before the class start time. Refunds will be given as store credit only. Classes with fewer than four students may be canceled or rescheduled for insufficient registration. Unless otherwise indicated, our classes are for students 16 years of age or older. Your registration is valid for the dates listed in the description and may not be transferred to other class dates.

Be sure to come to the studio early enough to have your supplies purchased and your yarn wound into balls before the start of class. Purchasing supplies from Michigan Fibre Studio supports your LYS and enables us to continue bringing in teachers for your continued fiber education.

Weather Policy – Michigan weather is unpredictable. We will make a determination 2 hours before class whether or not class will be held or cancelled. Determination is based on the weather in Eastown. If we cancel due to weather, you can either be refunded, transfer to a new session, or store credit. If you cancel due to weather and the class is still held, class fee is not refundable unless cancellation is made 72 hours before the class start time. Refunds will be given as store credit only.

You are taking a space in the class that someone else could be using. Please be courteous of instructors time. Instructors are paid even if you do not show up.
