MY FIRST SWEATER

You are comfortable with the knit and purl stitches and now would like to try knitting your first sweater! In this introductory sweater class, local designer Holli Yeoh will guide you through the process. You can bring your own sweater pattern and materials or get help making one of Holli’s own creations right from the designer.

DATES: Tuesdays, Feb 6, 13, 20 & 27th from 6:00-7:30pm

 

KIDS LEARN TO KNIT

For students from Kindergarten through Grade 7… Do you want to learn to knit? Learn new skills? Make fun projects?

Kids Learn to Knit

In this project based class, you will learn how to knit—if you don’t already know—and/or learn new techniques while working on cool and simple projects like scarves, cowls, fingerless gloves or toys. Each kid knits what they want based on interest and skill level while being guided in a fun and engaging group of knitters and friends. All levels welcome.

An interactive welcome booklet will be provided for each student at the beginning of the first class. Patterns/project ideas will be supplied for students based on their skill level & interest.

 

DATES: Sundays Feb 11, 18 & 25th from 4:30-5:30pm

    Any chance that sweater class will be on the weekend in the future? I’d love to take it but cannot do weeknights due to work schedule.

      We can certainly try to schedule this; keep an eye on our website’s CLASSES list, as I update regularly, and I can discuss with the teacher if this is a possibility for March or April. Thank you for your suggestion!
