Happy New Year: We are going to try something new with classes this year: we will still be providing private lessons with our very talented teachers but we have also decided to start the new year with 2 very different class opportunities for folks who want to learn the life-long skill of knitting.
We will offer drop-in basic beginner's classes every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month from 1 pm to 2 pm. This beginner class will teach casting on, the knit stitch, the purl stitch, and casting off. These will repeat the same skills at each meeting so that you can start anytime or you can drop in when you want to refresh your recollection. This class begins January 5 at 1 pm, and costs $10 per one hour session.
The second class is a progressive class which will follow the techniques and agenda of the new Pom Pom book "Knit How". We will work our way through the book at a steady pace, learning new techniques and tackling new and different projects as we follow the book's general outline. If you are already a knitter with some basic skills and are looking for new challenges, you may join the class at the level that you see yourself and continue with us through the book. This class requires purchase of the Pom Pom "Knit How" book. Contact the shop for more details and to let us know if you are interested. This class will meet on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month from 1 pm to 2 pm, and costs $10 per one hour session.
For more information about these new classes see the Classes page on this website or call the shop.
