September Building Blocks The next session will be Saturday, September 16 at 9-11 am. This is a drop-in class (no need to pre-register).  You can find more information here.

Beginning Knitting is a 3-session class to teach you the basics of what is sure to become a life-long passion.  You'll learn to cast-on, knit, purl, increase and decrease, and bind off.  By Class 3, you'll be ready to start your first project! The next classes are on Wednesdays, September 13, 20, and 27, 6-8pm. You can sign up online here, or call or stop by the store.

My First Socks Join Amy for this 3-session class to learn the very addictive process of making socks!  We will be making basic socks, starting at the cuff, and using the two-circular needle method for knitting small circumferences in the round. Classes are Tuesdays, September 19 and 26, and October 3, 6-8pm. You can sign up online here, or call or stop by the store.

Thursday Night Drop-In is a chance to get some help on a troublesome project or just hang out knit or crochet with a fun group!  There is no charge to drop in.  September sessions will be held every Thursday in September from 6-8pm. Note: There will be no drop-in sessions during August.

We will be closed on Monday, Sept. 4 to celebrate Labor Day.  Have a wonderful holiday!

Thank you for making us your Local Yarn Shop!
