Welcome to Knitting level one—a class truly designed for anyone, young or old, who is interested in starting a hobby that will quickly lead to a yarn obsession. In this class you will learn all the basics including casting on, how to knit and purl, and bind off…don’t worry because by the end of the class you will also know what these terms mean. We will follow a basic pattern and create a nice pair of fingerless mittens. I can’t wait to share this experience with you!

Class Instructor: Linda Lindsay
Interested in learning to spin but you don’t have a spinning wheel yet? Its ok because Linda has a loaner you can practice on! Have a spinning wheel but not the skill to use it? Always wanted to try but didn't know if you'd like it? Linda will take you from start to finish with teaching you how to use your wheel and take you through the process of how fiber is cleaned and processed to be usable, and how to spin, ply, and work with your fibers to your best advantage.
A wheel, if you have one but it’s ok if you don’t!

Beginning Tatting Class
Class Instructor: Barbara Davis
Tatting is fun! My sister and I were afraid that tatting would become one of the lost arts. We decided to learn to tat and bought books and shuttles. After several false starts, I learned to tat and have taught it for several years. Recently, a friend who is left handed, asked me to learn to needle-tat so I could teach her.
In this class learn to make beaded jewelry, butterflies and more. We will use a tatting shuttle or #8 tatting needle. Our first project will be a tatted butterfly that incorporates circles, chains and joins. We will also add a bead using the tatting shuttle or needle.
Materials: (not included in cost of class)
