Welcome!






***If you need to cancel for any reason, 2 days notice is needed or class fee may not be refunded.

Knitting classes aren't just a great way to learn new skills, it's a great way to meet people who share your craft!

Please sign up for classes early as they tend to fill quickly.  We can only guarantee a seat to those students who have paid their class fee.

Unless noted otherwise, you do need to sign up prior to the class.  We've had to turn away people dropping in due to lack of space.

Unless there are materials that aren't available, they should be purchased at The Knitting Room.***







Winter/Spring 2015 Class List





Create Your Own Scrap Sweater-

You can either, take a series of Tuesday classes, or a series of Saturday classes.

Do you have a stash that you'd love to use, but you're just not sure where to start using it?  Or, do you have leftovers from favorite projects that you just can't toss?  If you answered no to either of these, are you really a knitter?  Anyway, we have a solution for you.  Turn them into your own beautiful scrap sweater!  Choose a top-down sweater pattern and we'll have you off and running.

If you'd like an idea of how it may turn out, stop in to see the 3 that Mary's made.  I bet she has no stash left.  (Right?!)
