Here are the latest classes and activities on our schedule!

Crocheted granny squares
Intro to Crochet Workshop: 

This crochet workshop is designed to introduce to you the basic stitches of single, half-double, double, and treble crochet, and simple techniques of working flat and in a circle.  After this class you will be prepared to read and follow patterns.

The book “Crochet Techniques” (available at Chicks with Sticks) will introduce you to other more advanced stitches and techniques that we have not covered in class. 

The class is open to adults and children accompanied by an adult.  A great opportunity for a parent/grandparent - child activity!

Shorty Sock Fridays
We are still gathering on Friday afternoons for shortie sock knitting time.  You can drop in any Friday and get started. Shorty socks are a great quick summer project and oh-so portable!

Does a project have you down?  Thursday night help/social knitting sessions may be just the thing for those times you need a couple hours of assistance (or just moral support) on a project.  Sessions run from 6-8pm Thursday nights.  Be sure to check our online calendar or give us a call as there may occasionally be a night when there is no class.

Thank you for making us your Local Yarn Shop!
