Just bring yourselves and join us in celebrating 4 WONDERFUL years!

Introduction to Lace Knitting (with charts)
This is a repeat of our sold out class from earlier this year. In this class we will be working on basic lace knitting techniques, starting with the written word and covering how to both make the stitches and back them out. As we become familiar with the knitting we will progress into making the same stitches from charts. – Only 2 spots remain open in this class!
Sunday (oops!) July 27th, 1-4pm
Cost: $35, includes three patterns.
Instructor: Alissa

Did you know that you can request any class? You don’t have to wait for us to schedule it! Just give us a call and talk to Alissa, together we will pick dates and times that work for you and then we will invite others to join in the fun.

Your payment secures your spot in any class. Class fees are not refundable less than one week from the start of the class. You can come into the shop to sign up or call the shop at (214)412-2889 during regular business hours, or leave us a message and we will call you back when we are open.
