Fix It Class for Knitters with Diana Schwab-Saturday, October 26th from 1 pm to 4 pm
This much anticipated class will fill up quickly. In this class you will learn how to fix mistakes in your knitting without having to rip out the whole thing. Students will have to have a thorough understanding of knit and purl stitches and know how to knit a cable pattern. The $35 fee includes your patterns, instructions and a Handi Tool to help you fix your mistakes. You will need to come in to register and pick up your patterns, as you have to knit the swatches before class so you have something to fix. You will need to supply a small amount of light colored worsted weight yarn, a cable needle, US 7 straight or circular needles, plus an extra needle of the same size to learn a special 3 needle bind off to help build your skills. My apologies, but this class is full. We will schedule more sessions of this class in January, February and March of 2020.
Beginner Crochet with Justine Roefs-Saturday, November 9th from 1 pm to 3 pm
For this class, you don't need to know anything about crochet, you just need a passion to learn. You will be making a cotton wash cloth using single crochet. You will learn how to chain and single crochet. The $35 fee will include all materials and instructions for this class.
My apologies, but this class is full.
Cast Ons and Bind Offs with Diana Schwab-Saturdays November 2nd and 16th from 1 pm to 4 pm
There are two sessions in this class. The first class will cover 7 cast on techniques and the second will cover 6 bind offs. The student should have a thorough understanding of knit and purl stitches, and know how to make a crochet chain. You will provide a ball of light colored, worsted weight yarn appropriate for US 7 or 8 needles, a H or K crochet hook, and waste yarn or stitch holders to keep your samples for the second class. As well as technique, you will also learn the uses for each one, which Diana suggests you keep attached to your instruction sheet. The fee for this class is $40 and covers both sessions.
More classes will be added in the next few weeks. Please check back to see what's new, or sign up for our newsletter under our contact tab for information sent straight to you email.
