Holiday Shop Closures:
Dec. 24 – 27th
Dec. 31 – Jan 2nd
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 Dec 8th: 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 Dec 22nd: 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!
Monthly Classes for December 2018 – Sign up here!
Apple Crisp Cowl (crochet): Fri. Dec 14th, 6 pm – 8 pm
The Apple Crisp Cowl is the perfect fall accessory. It can cozy up a white t-shirt and jeans ensemble, and its non-bulky front lets you add it underneath your coat with ease. Instructions suggest worsted weight yarn; a larger hook size can adequately adjust for a DK weight yarn. The pattern stitch gives a knit-look rib effect.
Suggested Yarns: Cozy Alpaca, Farm Herriot, Kaleidoscope Worsted, Berroco Comfort, Encore Worsted
Regina Scarf (knit): Sat. Dec 15th, 2 pm – 4 pm
Shannon has been at it again!!! The pattern is so new, it hasn’t been published yet. This time we have the gorgeous Regina scarf to keep you warm! You don’t have to worry about being too hot since it is made with light-weight yarn.
Suggested Yarns: Indie-dyed; Perth, Nuna
Pebble Texture Hat (crochet): Fri. Dec 21st, 6 pm – 8 pm
A quick project (I made 3 after dinner one night!), and so much fun to accessorize – yarn pompom, faux fur-pom, or unique button are just a few ideas to finish your hat. Sizes are given for toddler, youth, and adult. This would also make a good project for charity crocheting. The texture is created with bands of front post crossed double crochet stitches.
Suggested yarns: Red Heart Soft, Encore Worsted, Dreambaby DK
Inskein Christmas Party: Sat. Dec 22nd, 3:30 pm – 6 pm
We will be having our annual Christmas party after our December Knitting 101 class. Everyone is welcome to attend. We will be having a gift exchange through Elfster, but we can make arrangements if you miss the draw but want to participate. Just call us at 210-334-0200 to let us know.
