The V Cowl is done in two 2 hour sessions. This class is a great refresher on the basic warping technique as we warp the loom together in the first session.  You will learn the special set up for this project, weave 33" plain weave on your own and return for the 2nd session the following week.  In the 2nd session, you will learn the unique finishing to complete your cowl. Also covered will be hemstitching, patterning and tensioning.  Other techniques will be reviewed.

Materials required:

Rigid heddle loom  with at least a 12" weaving width.
8 dent reed
yarn (kit to be purchased at Yarnworks)

2 Thursday evenigs - February 19 and 26.  5 p.m. to 8 p.m.  $45 plus $18 yarn kit.  Space is limited so sign up now.


 4 NEEDLE SOCKS - This is the basic "learn to knit socks" class that we have been teaching for many years.  It is the best way to understand sock construction and take the mystery out of heels, gussets and sewing up toes (kitchener stitch.) We supply the pattern, you supply the yarn and needles.  We will help you with your selection.   Homework is required so sign up early. 1 Saturday, February 21 -  10:30 to 2:30. $35.



Magic Loop Socks (or Two-at-a-Time Socks on one circular needle)

Avoid "second-sock-syndrome"  by knitting two socks at the same time on one needle!  For this class you will knit a pair of socks from the top down working with a DK weight yarn, and size 4 needles, 47" long.  You will cast on for both socks before class begins.


Note: You must have made a pair of socks on 4 needles and understand sock construction before you take this class.

The first day you will learn how to set up and begin knitting your socks. You will work the ribbing, and as much of the leg as time allows in the class.  Homework will be to work down to the ankle.

In the next class you will do the heel flap, turn the heel and pick up instep stitches. 

The class is in 2 sessions.  First session - February 28,  10:30am to 12:30pm.  Second session - March 14,  10:30am to 3:00pm.  $50 includes the book.



Learn to Weave on a popular Schacht Cricket loom.  We are bringing back our experienced weaving teacher for this fun class, on an easy-to-use 15" rigid heddle loom.  You can create scarves and cowls, placemats and table runners, mug mats - anything you can imagine .

With this loom you can quickly use up small bits of leftover yarn also.  Once set up, the weaving goes fast.  The cost of the class is $75 and includes the loan of the loom, a yarn kit to make a scarf/cowl (in a choice of colors) and great instruction.

If you don't finish your scarf, you can take the loom home (with credit card info).  If you choose to keep the loom because you love it, it costs $179.

Saturday, March 7 , 10 am - 4 pm.  $75   (Bring lunch)



Make-It - Take-It.  Purchase any of our wonderful kits to knit a beaded bracelet or necklace.  This "luxurious" jewelry doesn't take much time to complete, they are fun to knit and are very pretty.  There are a lot of styles to choose from and you only have to supply a size 3 straight needle (even 2 sock needles will do.) Join us to get started on your bracelet or necklace. Learn to thread the beads and attach the clasp. Then you will follow the pattern to finish your "gem".  Tuesday,  March 10 -  at 2:30 pm.  $6.

SAMPLE IT, WEAVE IT

Test your ideas for weaving on your rigid heddle loom, before you commit to a full project. This is a great refresher for warping technique. Fiber and color combinations will be covered in detail to give you the confidence to express your creative side.

We will also focus on keeping a journal of your work to build a foundation for future weaving success. Bring a 3 ring notebook or your favorite type of journal. If you have yarns from your stash at home and you’ve wondered how they might weave together, bring those along. We will be combining 3-6 colors/yarn weights in class so -gather some matching weights of yarns to get started.  We will have a basket of various yarns to play with, also.

Class is limited to 6 students, so sign up soon.

1 session. Thursday, March 12 – 5 pm to 8 pm.  $55 which includes $10 material fee.
