New Beginner’s Class Coming Soon

Starting Saturday April 6, Becky’s Saturday afternoon class will become

a beginner’s class- both knit & crochet, with a focus on techniques as well.

Becky’s New Beginner’s Class- Starting Saturday April 6 | 1-3pm.

Please call to sign up, just so we know who’s coming.

Another New Beginner’s Class!

Tuesdays | 4- 6pm beginning April 2.

A weekday beginners class with a new teacher- Regina. She’s been a regular here at the Edge for quite some time and teaches knitting to a loyal fan base near her home. We are very fortunate to have Regina joining us at TKE to teach beginning knitting.

This will be a class with a theme- “Washcloths are a Great Way to Learn”. Using 100% cotton, Regina will help you work your way through many techniques- learning new knitting skills -one cloth at a time. For the first few months, after you have knit 4 cloths (one per class) you will get a FREE hank of Fantasy Naturale Cotton. Knit another 4 cloths (one per class), and get another hank of cotton FREE. This is going to be a fun way to learn.

Please call to sign up so we know who is coming.
