Upcoming Classes

Warping Lab with Lynn
Tuesday Oct 15 | 3:15 – 6:15pm
Ready to take the next step in your rigid heddle experience? Join us for a “Warping Lab” . You will plan and warp your own project. Weavers must have some experience with direct warping as this is not a “teaching how to warp” class. However, guidance will be available to assist and answer questions. Students will then complete their work at their own pace. Loom rental available for a fee of $10.00.
Class fee: $35.00.
Project materials are additional. Please call to register.
Beginner Brioche
Monday Oct 14 | 1-3pm with JoAnne
Back by popular demand! Learn to Brioche by Knitting an easy 2 color cowl in a chunky weight yarn. I strongly suggest Chunky Merino Superwash, but Encore Chunky will also work. You will also need a 24-26″ circular size 10.5, and a stitch marker. Please call to sign up.
Lets Play with Beads
Tuesday & Thursday evenings
6:30 – 8:30pm with Maggie
Join Maggie to try your first foray into the beading world!
Ironish starts at the tip of the right wing and works across to the tip of the left wing. The right wing has increases to get to the rectangular lace section, and the left wing uses decreases to bring your stitch count back down again.
Ironish plays with texture, an optional beaded edging and two colors of fingering weight yarn. Do we ever have a lot of fingering weight yarns- so your choices will be endless!
Please call to sign up. Other project ideas welcome as well such as
Knit Night shown here with beads.
