We have added a Classes page to the website. Now you can check what is being offered without having to search through old blog posts. Of course we will continue to remind you here each week as well. Come join the fun. What could be better than learning a new skill (or improving an old one) while making new friends who share a common interest?
August 31 … Finishing a Garment … $25
If you have the pieces of a garment that you’ve put off sewing together, this is the perfect opportunity to get over that hurdle.
September 7th … Reading Your Canvas … $40
So you have a new canvas, but don’t know how to choose the stitches. This is the class for you. You will need some stitch resources for this class. Two that we highly recommend are: The Needlepoint Book by Jo Ippolito Christensen for $25 and Stitches to Go by Suzanne Howren & Beth Robertson for $20. Both books are available here at the shop.
September 14th … Setting Up A Project in knitCompanion … $25
knitCompanion is an amazing iPad app that will make your knitting so much easier. We will walk you through the process of setting up a project to get ready to knit. Learn more about knitCompanion here.
September 21 … Needle felting … $25, price does not include kit.
You will learn how to use one of these needle felting kits to make the cutest little wool animals you’ve ever seen.
Socks … October 12 & 26 … $40
This will be a two session class. The first session will get your sock started. The second session (two weeks later) will be turning the heel. You will need sock yarn and appropriate needles for your yarn choice, either two sets of circular needles (16 inch is recommended) or double pointed needles.
