Tackle a new project with guidance!

Whether you are tackling your first sweater, or are an experienced stitcher tackling a challenge, this class is a fun way to grow your skills! You will get to see what others are asking and probably learn a thing or two from their questions as well. We'll help you with yarn choices, and teach you all the skills you need to create it, from understanding the instructions and checking your gauge, to starting, finishing and putting it together.

Got some questions? Don't need a private class, but need more than a 3 minute quick peek, these sessions are for you too.  We can help you with a particular stitch manouever, instruction or need a quick demo of sewing up or such ...   These help sessions are meant to help you along with your project as issues arise.

  • We need a minimum of 3 students to run a session and 48 hours notice is required for cancellation.
