Knitting and Crochet

We're going to give out a mystery clue once every two weeks. You take it home and make the hat from it. By the end, you will have a present done! You need to have a wee bit of knitting experience to take this class, since it will be a handout and explanation rather than sit-down knitting. P.S. If you quilt, too, we will be handing out a quilting mystery at the same time! $25 if you use your own yarn, or no charge if you buy yarn from us. Supplies: You?ll need 200ish yards of a worsted-weight yarn. (We're personally using Noro's Silk Garden.) You'll need a couple of tubes of size 5 beads. Sizes 5 and 7 circular 16" needles. Wednesdays, Oct. 16, Oct. 30, Nov. 13, Nov. 27, 5:30-6:00 p.m. To sign up, click here (we'll refund the class fee when you buy the supplies), or stop by between 10-5:30, Monday through Saturday.

Cost: $ 25.00
This class will take you through the bead-knitting process step by step, and in just four rows of knitting you'll have a pretty little necklace. It's one of the fastest gifts you could ever knit!

As you might know, many designers on Ravelry (including me) are having a giftalong. They're offering selected patterns at 25% off for a week, and on Ravelry, there's a group you can join to win prizes and show off your work. I was thinking it might be fun to translate this into a class for the shop. So here's the deal: Starting November 27, if you buy a pattern through the in-store program from me (at 25% off), plus the yarn to make that pattern, the class is free. You can buy one project or several. (Naturally, I think you should buy several!) In keeping with the spirit of the giftalong's purpose to support indie designers, no free patterns are eligible. Now, if you do want to join in, but use stash or a free pattern, you can do that, but then the class will then be its normal price of $45. If you're buying materials and a pattern, I'll waive the fee in person. Please see the note I sent out for more details!

We'll meet once a month on Wednesday or Thursday mornings, or Thursday evenings. NOTE: This class is in progress. Look for new sessions of it beginning in January!
