NEW Online Learn to Knit and Beyond Basics CLASSES

March 30, 2020

Do you know anyone who could use a new skill in this crazy time? We will now be offering a Beginner Knitting class online to connect and expand our community of support, and need your help! Please help us spread the love of knitting by word of mouth to any of your near and dear that may benefit from a new skill. And for those that are interested in moving beyond the basic knit and purl, we are also offering an online knit-a-long fingerless mitts class that will teach a few new useful skills.

 

Knit me!!! This is the pattern designed by our teacher Rebecca specifically for this first-time knit class in choice of mitts or cowl!

 

While we all continue to stay at home during these unprecedented times, no one should ever feel alone and our mental health and well-being is more important than ever. Virtual knit nights, group meetings and fitness classes have become the new norm and they have given us the opportunity to stay connected to our community.

 

At Baaad Anna’s we have made the shift from in store classes to on line, using the Zoom app.  To access your class you will be provided a link at registration and if you down load the free Zoom app you can join in on your smart phone and or tablet as well, detailed guidelines can be seen here. This will allow us to continue to provide the opportunity to learn a new skill as well as provide a platform for students to meet and share with others online.  Research has shown knitting to have a measurable effect on calming anxiety and relieving stress as well as keeping us socially connected.
