Knit & Natter Drop-In
Tuesdays from 1-3pm & Thursdays from 6-8pm
This drop-in class and/or knit & natter session is meant to help you get through those next steps in your knitting pursuits. Maybe you have always knit scarves and would like to tackle a hat? We can help with that!
You bring your current project and we will have an experienced staff member available to help you through the scary parts. Due to the size of this class we don’t have time to teach lengthy skills but we do try our best to get to everyone and help as much as possible.
As these sessions are so popular we do have dedicated classes for learning specific skills, including fixing mistakes and finishing techniques. A full list of our courses is available on our website.
For just $25 you get 5 sessions at our drop-in class. We only stamp your card when you require help. It is free if you simply want to knit & natter!
Membership cards can be purchased when you arrive for your first class.
F – IT! Finish it, fix it or frog it!
Pick any Wednesday – September 6th, October 11th, November 8th, December 6th from 6-8pm
As knitters we all have a project (or two) that just isn’t working out. Whether you put a project away for a little too long and can’t figure out how to start back into it, or you made a mistake but just can’t quite figure out how to fix it, this class is for you!
Bring us your shame and we will get you back on track! We will help you determine the best way to finish it or fix it. Should we arrive at the decision that your prized yarn would be better suited to another project, we will hold your hand and provide Kleenex for the frogging!
$10 per session. Please RSVP so we can have an idea of how many tables to prepare.
