Product DescriptionThis is the time to skill build, knit for Christmas gifts, and get that awesome sweater done for fall warmth!
Starting Thursday, September 6th, we will be offering 2-hour classes where you will learn a new skill. Each class will have knitting that needs to be finished before you come to class. We will offer kits for classes that will need to be purchased before the day of class, so you can be prepared the day of class. Classes will be offered on Thursday, from 3pm to 5pm pm. You must RSVP for class and pick up your kit at least 48 hours prior to the class to hold your spot. We are offering anyone who signs up for class 15% off the Vogue Ultimate Knitting Book (no other discounts) and a graduation gift when you complete 7 of the 9 classes.
Here is the list of classes. We will try to offer more information as class gets closer and prices may be adjusted as kits are formed.
