If you are interested in beginning knitting, we schedule private lessons
during the week as well as Saturday mornings before the shop opens.
The cost is $30 for one hour of instruction; we encourage groups and
offer hourly group rates as well. In one hour of beginning knitting,
one can learn how to cast on, knit and purl!

Do you want to make a one-of-a-kind
show- stopper knit accessory, but are intimidated? Natalie has designed a one- hour workshop where you will make a knitted swatch mimicking the pattern which you can then felt at home, stress free! This technique will work for either the Wisdom Wrap,
or the Meadow Lark Bolero
Natalie has finished both the bolero, and wrap and they are in the shop! This class will meet Saturday, May 18th from 10-11 A.M. for $35.00 which includes yarn and the directions for this workshop (but it does
include the pattern or the needles). These are all made from 100% silken straw, and a wool silk blend yarn. They are one of a kind, breath taking unique garments. The Scarf is around $130 to make, and the bolero and wrap are around $330 to make (this is on the high end if you were to choose all new colors since the yarn has really crept up in price over the last 3 years). Keep in mind that this is a great time to use a bit of stash Alchemy Yarns if you have them, and the leftovers can become the
shibori scarf, or other Alchemy Projects!
