Look below the classes section for our free workshops to be held in July. We have 6 scheduled for you to make Christmas Gifts in July!

The workshops are free. You provide the material and we will work on the projects together. 

These are not "learn how" classes. You must be able to have a working knowledge of knitting and have done a simple needlepoint. (If you would like to learn to knit or crochet we have private lessons available.)  See each workshop description below for more information.

Come Dye with us in our “courtyard” - using the shibori technique.  A fun day to make a mess outside and make fabulous fabric at the same time.

Shibori is a type of Japanese resist dyeing. In this class we will use the traditional folding and resist techniques and bright dyes to create exciting patterns and colors! Each student will make 3 or 4 scarfs by folding and tying fabric, using resist shapes, and a piece of PVC pipe to make unique, one of a kind scarves!

Students bring aprons, gloves, and wear clothing you don't mind getting dye on.

Instructor will provide fabric, dyes, string, resist shapes, clips, and PVC pipe. We will prepare the scarves inside in the air conditioning (if it's very hot) and then go outside do dye. 

Note new date:
Saturday - July 15, 10:30 am until 2 pm. $50 includes all materials.

Bring lunch




Skill Builder Classes  -  Knit 2 beautiful blocks every 2 months for a total of 12 different designs. You will learn a different knitting technique with each piece and when you are finished, you will assemble them into a lovely lap throw. (You will be proud to give this as a Christmas gift.) 

In the first class you will get started on your first square and discuss the next one that you will make. In the rest of the classes you will continue building your skills with each square.


The first class is $35 which includes a $20 book with all the patterns in it. You supply the yarn and needles.  Please wait for the first class to choose your yarn as the teacher would like to discuss the best colors and yarn for this project. The successive 5 classes are $15 each. You can call a few days before these last 5 classes and pay for them at that time.

You must know how to cast on, knit and purl for this class.

Tuesdays - February 21, April 11 (PLEASE NOTE DATE CHANGE), June 20, August 22, October 24 and December 12.   -  6 pm to 8 pm.

Learn to Crochet or Knit Private Lessons are available for $25/hour.  Learn  crochet or knit stitches, the basics of pattern reading or bring your pattern if you have something you want to make.  Call to schedule your private lesson today. We can usually sign you up for Thursday or Friday morning from 9 to 10.  Other times may be available.

Workshops

ZickZack - This popular scarf is made in only 2 colors of Baby Colori and you can make it as wide and as long as you want. This is a one row pattern where no two scarves look alike even if you use the same yarn colors. Neat idea. You provide the yarn and needles and we supply the one row, super quick to memorize pattern. 10% off materials purchased for the class.  Friday, July 14, 10 am to noon.  



Knitted Snowman - How cute is this?  He starts out looking like a bowling pin and with stuffing, a hat, scarf and eyes, he becomes this adorable snowman.

You purchase the kit which includes sufficient yarn for “himself”, his hat and scarf. Knitted flat and seamed as you stuff, you could also knit in the round. The snowman is 8 inches tall and about 15 inches around - skinny, he's not. Stuffing and pattern are included. The yarn kit will be sufficient for 1 snowman. You need to provide size 6 needles. July 13, 1 pm to 3 pm.



Tiny stocking ornaments.
For ease of knitting, these little 3" stockings are knitted flat. We have used them for adorable place card holders for Christmas dinner. Great, also, for gift packages with a candy cane stuck inside. You will get a kit with a pattern and sufficient yarn for 3 ornaments.  You need to provide size 3 or 4 needles, depending on how tightly you knit.  Tuesday, July 18, 1pm to 3 pm.




Mug Mats  Work on your double knitting and make these great mug mats for everyone who drinks coffee, tea or anything else that needs a mat. These are fun and easy, quick to make. We give you the pattern, you provide the yarn and needles.  We have been using Sugar and Cream, which we have in a lot of colors. 10% off materials purchased for this class. Thursday, July 20, 2 pm to 4pm.


Bulky Hat -   This is a very quick ribbed knit - on circular needles. This will become the favorite hat of dad or brother who lives in cold climates.  You can make a bunch in a short time. 

We used Malabrigo Rasta but there are a few other bulky yarns to choose from. We provide the pattern, you provide the yarn and needles.  10% off materials purchased for this class. Tuesday, July 25 from 10 am to 12 noon.
