We offer beginning knitting and crochet classes once a month. Our goal in these classes is to give you enough knowledge that you can walk out and go stitch a scarf! We will also point you to online resources that can help you continue learning and advancing in your fiber quest. Cost for beginner classes is $30 for instruction only or $40 for instruction plus supplies. By appointment only.
Crochet 101 – Saturday Mar. 11th : 1-3pm – We cover chain stitch, single crochet, double crochet, and how to finish a project. We also discuss other crochet stitches, such as a half double crochet and treble crochet, as variations of those we learn in class
Knitting 101 – Saturday Mar. 25th : 1-3 pm – We cover casting on, knit stitch, purl stitch, and binding off. If time allows we will also show you some patterns and designs you can make using only those two stitches!
If those dates aren’t convenient for you, we also offer private instruction for $15 an hour that can be arranged to fit your schedule!
We also offer more advanced and pattern classes that change from month to month. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter or check our calendar to stay updated on what we’ll be offering next! (We promise we won’t send out more than two emails per month.)
$15 per hour: By appointment only
Already know a thing or two about knit or crochet? Or can’t make the Saturday 101 classes? Private instruction with any of our staff may be right up your alley! We’ll have you feeling like a pro in no time!
