Spring Classes, Events & KAL’s

Now that Spring has officially sprung and the outdoors calls, we’ve added several opportunities to gather! As the last few classes of our Winter session play out, we’re looking to inspire you with some activities that, while not always knitting-related, are lots of fun and give us a chance to get together as a community. Read through and see when you’d like to join us this May & June!

Class Policies

Our classes are filled on a first come, first served basis and payment is expected in full at the time of enrollment.  There is an email sign up link under each class offering, but payment must be made by phone or in person at the shop.  Materials for classes are listed under each offering and are available for purchase prior to class unless they are included in the cost of the class.  We prefer all materials for classes be purchased from Woolworks so students are working with the prescribed yarns and materials for each class.  We are happy for students to bring and use their own needles and notions.

Class cancellations may be made for a full refund up to one week prior to class.  After that, there are no refunds offered.  If class is cancelled due to weather or instructor illness, we will reschedule.

Private Instruction

We have a group of talented instructors who are available for private lessons on any topic and are arranged at the convenience of the student at our shop.  Beginning Knitting is generally taught privately because we feel that one-on-one attention is essential to a great start.  Private lessons are one hour at the rate of $30.  A semi-private lesson is available for $45/one hour.  Payment for private instruction is payable by check or cash to the instructor.  Please plan accordingly before your visit.

If you are interested in learning a skill privately, please call or email and we’ll get back to you quickly.

Knit & Nosh: A Friday Morning Tradition!

Each Friday Karen welcomes knitters for a social hour from 9-10am prior to the shop opening for business.   Knitters gather for coffee, a bite to eat and to work on their current projects.  There’s a strict “no business/no technical help” policy during the hour and participants take turns bringing nosh for that week.  It’s a wonderful tradition at our shop and everyone is welcome.  We hope you’ll join in any Friday you are available!

Date:    Every Friday morning
Time:  9-10am

Every year we PROMISE ourselves we’re going to make this advent mitten garland so it’s ready for Christmas…This year Karen is leading a KAL to make the 24 mittens from Kathy Lewinsky’s pattern over the course of the year, one Sunday a month.  The concept is simple:  Buy the materials (4 skeins of Bio Shetland and needles) and meet up on the fourth Sunday of each month to knit together, compare notes and get help with the motifs.  By December 2019 you’ll be ready to hang your garland on the mantle!

Prerequisites:  Must be comfortable both knitting in the round and doing colorwork.

Time:              10am-noon
Cost:               $75 plus materials
