The SprangLady Subscription-2024- Twinning
Welcome to the SprangLady 2024 Subscription, a year of colourful sprang twining patterns on a background of interlinking.
This subscription began early in COVID. My daughter noted that her friends could subscribe to monthly cross-stitch patterns or sock patterns or crochet patterns. She asked if perhaps there could be a monthly sprang pattern.
The subscription works like a magazine. You get a new pattern each month. You can also order "back issues" and get previous issues all at once.
While the 2021 subscription offered a peek into the variety of structures compatible with sprang, the 2022 subscription delved into sprang lace, and in 2023 we explored the possibilities with S&Z, in 2024 we look at twining on a background of interlinking.
Here is a preview of the year's subscription.
Sharon and Debi have already previewed the charts and instructions and are very excited. If you want to see some of the samples they made based on the 2024 charts and instructions, then check out https://www.sprangart.com/twining-sprangalong.html
Included in the subscription we will be available for a monthly sprang chat via Zoom, on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. There you can ask questions, and receive on-line support. You will also be able to meet others interested in sprang. The monthly Zoom chat will be arranged at different times of the day on a rotating cycle, to accommodate members in diverse time zones.
For those of you who missed signing up in January ... this is not a problem. Even if you sign up, in, say, June, you will begin with access to all the previous information, January through June's structures ... but you will have missed out on 5 months of Zoom meetings.
If you are comfortable with the basics of sprang, how to set up, how to work the basic stitches, how to read Carol's charts, and a finishing technique or two, then this subscription is for you. The first few months of the subscription will include written instructions on this twining on a background of interlinking as well as a few how-to videos ... for those familiar with Carol's charts. For those wanting more personalised help, we will be offering a class on this technique in January 2024.

Explore finger weaving
Finger weaving is a technique that usually is used to make belts or sashes. But it can be so much more than that.
Sprang is a reciprocal technique of making cloth that has sideways stretch. This technique is found throughout the world in different cultures and can be used to make almost anything from belts to bags to beautiful garments.
