Classes


This class is a mystery shawl that was written in celebration of Local Yarn Shop Day on April 21. The pattern is available on Ravelry, and there will be roughly one new clue out each Friday. We will have class on the Saturday morning following each clue, from 9-10 a.m. (If we need to stay a bit longer for a difficult part, we will.) The class is no cost if you use at least two skeins of yarn purchased between now and the first day of the class at Stitch Your Art Out. (We'll help you choose awesome colors.) Otherwise it is $38. Please come by in person to sign up, buy yarn, and support your local yarn shop! (We give you permission to buy more yarn each time you come for class. You're welcome.) This will be fun! Space is limited, so sign up soon!

Cost: $ 38.00
