Entrelac is a great texture — the front looks a bit like a diagonal basketweave, and the back reminiscent of choppy waves. It takes a bit of time to get the hang of this pattern by Allison LoCicero, but the result is worth the effort—and the process can be addictive! You’ll be hooked after this single class.

Tuesday, October 20 at 7 PM

Twitter co-creator Sagolla offers the first writing guide specifically dedicated to communicating with the succinctness and clarity that the Internet age demands. Expressing oneself clearly in short bursts -particularly within Twitter's 140 character limit - takes special writing skill. For marketers and business owners, social media is an increasingly important avenue for promoting a business. 140 Characters is the equivalent of Strunk and White's Elements of Style for today's social media-driven marketing messages. It covers all the basics of great short-form writing, including the importance of communicating with simplicity, honesty, and humor.
