Spinning is such a rewarding fiber art, you get to make the exact yarn you want to knit, crochet or weave with! Drop spindles are portable, so you can take your spinning with you on the go, and before you know it, you’ll have a skein of yarn that you made! Please note, we will be using wool for felting in this class, in case you have an allergy.

Join us for this fun, informative class where Kelly will teach you how to Cast On, Knit, Purl and Bind Off. You’ll talk about yarn, needles, other tools of the trade, gauge and pattern reading, so you’ll have a good base of information to get you started off right! This cowl is so much fun to knit and wear, and makes great gifts for the holidays too; you’ll want to make one in every color!

In this class Kelly will teach you to make a quick to knit hat that everyone will love!

Have you heard of or seen Tunisian crochet before? This is a fun fiber arts technique that is almost a hybrid of knitting and crochet. If you knit and have wanted to crochet, this class is for you, it’s a great way to ease into crochet.

We’ll also go over some other stitches that mimic the knit and purl stitches and allow you so many stitch and texture combinations!
