Join Us for a Sock-Making Pedicure Retreat!

July 27, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Pamper yourself with some spa socks! This workshop is here to help expand your sock skills while we make sure our feet are sandal ready. We will be working on making some shortie ankle height socks to keep your feet cozy around the house or the hotel (while on your next vacation). Learn the heel flap and gusset technique, short row heels, or the figure 8 cast on for toe-up socks!  All you have to do is choose which type of spa sock you want to create. Learn all of these skills while getting a spa pedicure at Salon Meraki – Danielle’s choice for the best pedicures in Old Town. Enjoy meat and cheese from La Fromagerie and bubbly, while you learn and relax!


For the top down socks, we’ll build off the Rye pattern, instructors will take you through one of two different heel and toe techniques (with a traditional heel flap or short row heel), so you can feel confident in making the most perfect socks for you.

For toe up socks, we’ll teach you the figure 8 cast on and build on the family toe up socks. Come to class prepared to learn this fun cast on!
