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.

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 www.ravelry.com 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.

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 reallyclear.com 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.

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

The log cabin is one of the oldest and most beautiful blocks. It used to be done with foundation piecing, but today, we have rulers that make quick work of it! Cost: $28 plus supplies. Supplies: Bring in scraps of light and dark fabrics. You'll also need to buy the Creative Grids log-cabin ruler (6- or 12-inch size), which you can get at the shop.

One-block wonders are fabrics that are cut in layers so that they kaleidoscope as hexagons. The first night, we'll cut out the fabric and talk about how to sew the hexagons. The second night, we'll look at final layouts before you sew them down. Wednesdays, Oct. 13 and Dec. 8. $38. Supplies: Talk to Cynthia before the class. You?ll need a large-scale print; buy 6 repeats of it. You?ll need a Creative Grids 60-degree triangle ruler. You?ll need flat-head flower pins. And you?ll need basic sewing supplies. Some flannel or batting is highly recommended to "stick" your pieces down and create the layout.

Cost: $ 38.00
Let's get started quilting. You'll make one placemat in class, and you'll learn all kinds of cool things, such as matching at the corners, cutting safely, picking fabrics, quilting, binding, and of course, the famous scant quarter-inch seam (whatever that is!). Cost: $42 plus supplies. Supplies: You'll need a machine in good working order. You'll also need the pattern and all the fixin's! Make an appointment to stop by at least a few days before the class begins so we can help you pick out your fabric and notions. We suggest our Creative Grids rulers, which are easy to use with a non-slip grip and visible markings; our Creative Grids mats, which are the best cutting mats in the whole wide world; and our Olfa rotary cutters, which are sturdy, safe, and easy to use. Good tools and fabrics really do matter--they increase happiness and keep frustration low! Oct. 11, 20, and Nov. 1, from 6-8 PM on Zoom.

Cost: $ 42.00
Have you been wanting to stretch your creativity, but are feeling a bit lost? This is the perfect class! We'll have a gentle prompt each class, and then we all take it from there to play with fiber! Any type of fiber will do, and we've seen it all in this fun class. You'll do the assignments outside of class, and we'll get together to discuss them. Cost: $38. Supplies: The first assignment is to "have a heart." Use any medium you'd like, and any interpretation of that assignment. Tuesdays, Nov. 16, Dec. 14, Jan. 18, and Feb. 22, 6-8 PM on Zoom.

Cost: $ 38.00
