Sign Up for your Early Spring Knitting Classes
Our next session of knitting classes is on the calendar and sign-up starts TODAY! Don't delay in signing up so you can snag a spot in the class-time of your choice!
The early spring session begins March 5 and runs 8 weeks. We have three class categories for all levels of knitters:
Beginners Learn to Knit is for knitting newbies. If you've never touched knitting needles or yarn, this is the class for you! Don't be nervous, our patient teachers will help you master the knitting basics. We'll get you started and you'll begin (and perhaps finish) making a pair of fingerless mitts during our Beginners class!
Intermediate Knitting is for our knitters who've mastered the basics of the knit stitch, the purl stitch, casting-on, binding off and a few other basic techniques! Whether you've graduated from our Beginners class or you're returning to the craft, these classes are like a choose-your-own-adventure in knitting. Our expert instructors will not only help you find knitting projects appropriate for your skill level, but they will teach you the techniques required to complete them!
Our Combination Classes are perfect for knitters who aren't quite sure where they fall, or who love that class time. We'll have instructors available to teach everyone from beginners to advanced knitters.
Knitting classes are $160. Our classes run in 8-week sessions and each class is 90 minutes. There will be no-weekly make-up sessions for our classes going forward. A make-up class will be scheduled at the end of the session.
