Workshops & Classes

Knit & Natter – Every Tuesday from 5pm – 7pm. All are welcome to come along and bring whatever crafty item you are working on. This is a free event.

Beginner’s Knitting Class

Friday Evenings from 5 pm to 7 pm

Beginners Knitting Class

These first 2 hours will get your hands going in the right direction of a knitting project.

We could also work to refresh your knitting skills if it’s been a few years or if you want to expand your knitting repertoire and try a pattern that is a bit more of a challenge. I can help you with whatever kind of thing you would like to take on during these 2 hours.

Men’s Knitting Class

Will resume in the Fall

Men's fingerless gloves

Afraid you’re not man enough to learn to knit? If you can hold two sticks and count to 10 then I can teach you to make stuff that will cause people to look at you and say, “Wow, look at you!”

Early on we’ll keep it simple by tackling casting on, simple knit and purl stitches, & binding off as you make a couple of easy peasy washcloths just like your Grandpa used to use because your Grandma knit them for his lazy ass!

We’ll progress through knitting projects like hats, scarves, fingerless gloves (because ain’t nobody dumb enough to knit fingers) and eventually work up to full on sweaters! Trust me if I can do it then you can too!

Two at a Time Toe Up Sock Class

June 15th, 22nd, & 29rd from 1 pm to 3 pm

Knitted Socks

The joy of knitting toe-up, two-at-a-time socks is very nearly magical and is most certainly addictive. A dear friend of mine showed me how to do it and now I can’t stop!

Join me on a fun and informative adventure to making socks that fit, and never cause you to get the dreaded SSS (second sock syndrome)!

This class will introduce you to a Turkish cast on and a knitting method using two 24″ fixed circular needles and we will use the Fish Lips Kiss heel method.

A 4 day Nuno felting workshop by Nancy Ballesteros from Perth, Western Australia.
As far back as the ancient Egyptians, it has been recognized that a certain proportion keeps showing up in things we consider beautiful – a Natural Rhythm that our human brain finds especially visually pleasing. Mathematicians and philosophers have written books; Leonardo Da Vinci used it when he painted Mona Lisa – The Golden Ratio, Fibonacci’s numbers… Imagine how this could help you with your creativity?
