Classes and Events
For now, all our classes, social stitching, and knitalongs are held virtually via Zoom.
"The class size was perfect…enough students to generate questions but not so many that you felt like a number." Maria
We've actually discovered that there are several advantages to this format. For one, the demonstrations of new techniques are really visible with the close-up camera angle. For another, our guest instructors can teach for us more frequently since they don't have to travel. And you don't have to travel to take part in these wonderful opportunities.
In the past year, we've had knitting classes, crochet classes, needle felting classes, and even a mending class, so if you don't see what you are looking for, let us know and we will see what we can do to get it on the schedule.
