Ready to take your knitting to a new level with some catered-for-you skills building? Try our…

BEYOND THE BASICS

For knitters that are comfortable with the basic stitches, here’s a way to conquer your next knitty challenge. Bring whatever project with a new skill you would like to master, and our teacher will work with you over 6 hours of class time to teach you the skills you need to succeed in its completion. Self-paced with the project of your choice, this is a class for knitters of all skill levels to try a new technique, while receiving help and feedback on their work-in-progress. No need to abandon a project when help is less than a week away! Work with an amazing local designer to tackle a new pattern or project and master some new skills.

Materials needed: Bring a pattern and materials as your project requires. Materials can be purchased at Baaad Anna’s Yarn Store. Please visit at least a half hour before the start of the first class if you have not chosen a pattern or yarn. Our staff will be happy to help you.

FEBRUARY DATES: Thursdays February 6, 13, & 27th from 6:00-8:00pm

COST: $70-90 sliding scale (+tax)
