Have you seen the pictures people have been posting from our past Dye Day, Play Date and been jealous? Well, Allison has more fun in store and has decided to offer the class again, INSIDE the shop. Because our space is somewhat limited, we are going to keep the class to only 6 dyers. We will start at 10am, break for lunch and finish our class around 4pm. Each person will need dyeable, protein based fiber or yarn. We will have materials on hand for you to choose from, but because we have no idea how ambitious you plan to be, the cost of materials is based on what you use. The $45 fee pays for your class only, you will have the opportunity to dye from our supply of beautiful undyed yarns and fibers. The cost for the materials depends on how ambitious you are about your dyeing. $15/ 100 grams, yarn or fiber for spinning/felting. The materials fees are due the day of class, please bring a payment method with you that day.
Thursday, January 11, January 25, and February 8, 10am – Noon

There are literally hundreds of ways to start knitting, and yet it seems that we always fall back on the tried and true favorites. Why is that? Possibly because we do not have to stop and think about them, but more likely we never even give the start of our projects a second thought. But, we are knitters. Smart knitters, with the world at our fingertips thanks to Google. It’s time to expand our inner knitters and explore the world of Cast ons and Bind offs.
Saturday January 27, February 3 and 10, 10am-Noon Cost $60 (supplies not included)

Brioche is a hot trend in knitting right now and it can be pretty intimidating to read those instructions. We have chosen a simple, two color cowl to give you a fairly painless introduction to two color brioche. Do not fear, you will only be working with one color at a time! This one day class will teach you the basics of brioche knit and brioche purl as well as how to correct mistakes, a skill that is vital when working this kind of stitch.
Pattern included with the $25 class fee.
A supplies list will be emailed to you upon your paid enrollment in class.
