I just finished getting the classes through December posted and organized on the website. We have LOTS going on this fall including some returning favorites as well as some brand spanking new classes! You can sign up for classes by clicking on the “CLASSES” tab above.
We are introducing a few new classes but the biggest are our new series. By popular demand we have packaged both our Learn to Knit and Learn to Crochet classes into a series of three classes. This bundles the Learn to, Next Steps and a project class into a three week series. All supplies are included for both series and the cost is $90 per series. We are really excited about this new set of classes and hope you will be too!
Other new classes we are offering:
Felted Soap class taught by the lovely, talented and oh so entertaining Ruth Beck. She will be bringing her handmade soap and you get to use some locally produced fiber to make a felted cover for it. The cost is $35 for this class and includes all supplies. Oct 12th 6pm-8pm.
Fabric Jewelry taught by the whimsical, creative and sparkly Joanna Rood. She will be showing you how to take scraps of pretty fabric and sparkly things like buttons and rhinestones to make fabric yoyos that can be combined to make hair clips, necklaces, bracelets and more. This is a two week class and the class is $50 which includes a yoyo maker and your choice from our selection of fabrics and decorations(although you are welcome to bring any fabric or sparkly things you have at home that you would like to use!). Sept 28th/Oct 5th 6:30pm-8:30pm.
Make Paper Flowers will by taught by our own Grandma Linda. As summer fades, she will show you how to turn tissue paper, crepe paper and even coffee filters into beautiful paper flowers that you can keep all year long. All supplies are included and the cost for this class is $25. Oct 23rd 4pm-6pm.
The talented, patient and oh so smart Anne Berk is back with some returning favorites like Knit Your First Sweater (Nov 15th & 29th, Dec 6th & 13th, $50) but also with some new classes including Finishing Techniques for Hand Knits. This technique filled class will show you how to take your projects to the next level by finishing them off perfectly. Bring in your sweaters, purses, and other projects that are sitting in your knitting basket, finished but not sewn up yet and wear them home! Nov 19th 4pm-7pm, $35. Adding Zippers to Your Knits is a very popular class that will show you how to easily add a zipper to your hand knit cardigan, purse, skirt or pillowcase. Dec 3rd, 12:30pm-3:30pm, $35. And lastly she will be teaching a great holiday gift class on how to Knit Toys! She will show you how to make some fun cute (or funky!) toys for those on your holiday list. Nov 13th, 4pm-7pm $35.
Crochet Frostflower Shawl is here by popular demand! So many people have asked to make this shawl that is displayed in the shop that we have created this class! You will learn to make this modern hexagon granny square shawl that uses the join as you go technique so there is no sewing when you are done. You should know how to make a granny square before taking this class. Bring your own sock yarn (about 1000-1200 yards) and an F or G hook. Cost for this two week class is $45 and includes the pattern. Oct 29th/Nov. 5th 2pm-4pm.
We also have our Learn to Dye class with Sharon Spence the mad genius behind Stitchjones yarn (Oct 29th, 12pm-3pm), spinning classes with Judy, Wrapapalooza and the return of our 6 in 60 holiday gift making fun!
If you have a suggestion or request for a class, please let us know. We are always looking for new ideas!
Hope to see you soon!
