Classes


If you love jewelry, then you won't be able to resist this class. Join Cindy Decker-Raynak for a wonderful introduction to knitting with beads.

As long as you have knit a few things and have just a bit of patience, then knitting on the small needles will be a breeze! Wed., Nov. 29 & Dec. 6, 6:30-9.

We are teaming up with Wellness in Motion Yoga Studio for a one-day retreat at Bald Eagle State Park. We will spend the morning in a yoga class, have a healthy lunch (with a slight concession to dessert!), and then spend the entire afternoon knitting by the fireplace. Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 20 & 21, 2018 If you have never knitted or done yoga before, that is perfectly fine: We will be teaching both! If you have done either one or the other before, you will also be happy! Note that if you feel that you are physically unable to manage yoga, but would like an entire day to knit, we can accommodate that as well. To keep management simple, we are having signups only through the Wellness in Motion website: Go to www.wellnessinmotionstudio.com, and look under Special Events. All the details are there! The retreat will be held at the Nature Inn at Bald Eagle State Park. Our meeting room's wall of windows and its fireplace will set the day's inviting and relaxing environment. The date and time is January 15, 2017 from 10am to 4pm. Note: In case of snow, the retreat will be moved to January 29. (Overnight accommodations are also available at The Nature Inn and can be booked by calling them directly via their website.) Pre-registration is required for all participants. The early bird discount price is $80/person from now through November 30, 2016, and will go to $100/person from December 1 through January 5. After January 5, we will be unable to accept registrations. An additional $20/person fee is required for new knitters to cover the cost of materials and supplies. For the experienced knitters, we will provide a list of materials that you can bring with you. For yoga, simply wear comfortable clothing. You may want to bring along a small blanket as well. No refunds will be given, but in the event of an emergency, you may transfer your registration to a friend. In the unlikely event that we need to cancel, a full refund will be given to all. Space is limited, so sign up soon! SORRY, THIS RETREAT FILLED. YOU ARE WELCOME TO CALL WELLNESS IN MOTION TO BE PUT ON THE WAITING LIST.
