Knitting and Crochet Classes

You've heard of brioche, but you're not really sure what it is, and you have no idea how you'd do it. Well, look no further, because Eleanor is here to help you figure it out! This simple cowl will get you started, and then you might not stop! $32. Join her on Oct. 10 and 24, from 1-4 outdoors. She?ll contact you about the meeting place.

Cost: $ 32.00
This basic raglan cardigan can be made either plain if you're new to sweaters, or with the cables as shown. (Cynthia will show you how to make modifications.) Come in, and we'll help you choose a yarn. Wednesdays, Sept. 29, Nov. 3, Dec. 1, Jan. 5, and Feb. 2 on Zoom. Price: $55. Supplies: You may buy the College Avenue pattern either on paper from us or directly on Ravelry. Talk to Cynthia before class about your yarn. We love our Malabrigo Rios for this project, but other good basics, such as Cascade 220 or Ultra Alpaca, are terrific!

Cost: $ 55.00
Want to learn how to knit? Or need a refresher after many years of neglecting your knitting? Take our beginning-knitting course. You'll learn how to cast on, knit, and purl, and you'll start a scarf. Cost: $38 plus supplies. Supplies: Make an appointment to stop into the shop before the class to pick up the Easy-Looped Scarf pattern, and the yarn and needles to go with it. Sept. 18 & 25, 1-4 outdoors.

Cost: $ 38.00
This class is for new knitters who know only how to knit and purl, and maybe just a WEE bit more. (Important: If you do not know how to do those two stitches, please take Knitting 101 instead of this class.) Are you tired of making only the knit-stitch scarf you're seeing here? Would you like to learn a little more now so that you can make all the coolest things? We have just the class for you! Join Cynthia for a "Knitting Adventure Year." We'll use her Really Clear patterns to learn how to do everything from cables to Fair Isle to intarsia. If you don't know what those are, that's okay! We'll get you going! Cost: $60 plus supplies. Supplies: You'll need to buy the pattern each month, and the supplies for the project. Cynthia will send out a supply note about a week before each class. To buy the patterns, sign up for a Ravelry account at or get them at the shop when you buy the yarn. Thursdays, Jan. 28, Feb. 25, Mar. 25, no class in April, May 13, June 24, July 22, Aug. 12, Sept. 2, Oct. 14, Nov. 18, and Dec. 9. All from 6-8 PM on Zoom.

Cost: $ 60.00
As you may know, Cynthia designs knitting patterns (along with quilting patterns!). This class provides you with an interesting adventure into learning new things while you find any part of the pattern that isn't "really clear." We've had such fun in these classes for the past few years, working through her new ideas. This is a chance to play with surprise patterns, and to make requests for patterns you've always wanted (no guarantees on that one!). What we do each year is a bit of a mystery (even to her!). You might want to go to to see patterns she's designed in the past. Join us in the fun! Cost: $60 plus supplies. Supplies: We'll get supply lists as we go along throughout the year. Thursdays, Jan. 21, Feb 18, Mar. 18, no class in April, May 13, no class in June, July 15, Aug. 19, Sept. 30, Oct. 14, Nov. 11, Dec. 16. Your choice of 9-11 AM or 6-8 PM on Zoom.

Cost: $ 55.00
Yarn can be tricky! But Cindy Decker-Raynak has it all under control, and will show you tips and tricks so you can be in control, too. What happens when you discover a dropped stitch a few rows back? How do you make a jogless color change? How do you count with markers? How do you change colors of yarn without knots? And more! Soon you'll be throwing yarn in the air with abandon like the woman in this photo! Cost: $28. Supplies: Be prepared with scrap yarn and about a size 7 needle. Wednesday, Nov. 10, 6-8 p.m. on Zoom.

Cost: $ 28.00
Anne Van Aelst has such a terrific eye for projects, and this one is no exception! It's made from any self-striping yarn, but we love Juniper Moon's Cumulus, which is super soft, with gorgeous colors! Learn how to get those mysterious diagonal stripes made. $28, Saturday, Oct. 23, 1-4 p.m., outdoors. The teacher will contact you about the meeting place.

Cost: $ 28.00
