We will be adding classes, workshops and events as the season progresses.  Please sign up for our newsletter or follow us on Facebook for the most up-to-date announcements.

Class Policies
Classes require a minimum of 2 people to run or they will be cancelled (so sign up with a friend!).  Your non-refundable class fee must be paid at least 24 hours prior to the date of your class in order to reserve your spot.  In the case of a teacher cancellation or inclement weather, we will reschedule the class so you won’t miss it! Credit cards welcome – 508-457-9513

Our classes fall into four different difficulty levels:
Beginner: first-time and newer knitters welcome!  Knitting, purling, and very minimal shaping skills will be taught.

Advanced Beginner: expect to see patterns that use easy, repetitive stitch patterns, knitting in the round, basic colorwork, basic shaping, and simple finishing techniques.

Intermediate: expect more involved patterning and colorwork,  basic cables, lace, stranded and intarsia knitting, as well as more advanced shaping and more involved finishing requirements.

Advanced: expect larger, skill-heavy projects, including short rows, more intricate designs, more combinations of stitch patterns and more color changes.  Finishing requirements will vary from project to project.

During the fall, winter and spring months our classes focus on learning about specific project or technique.  You will see a few of these classes, below.  But during the summer, everyone is so busy (including our teachers) that we try to schedule one-session workshops and keep time open for drop-in classes.  Take a look and if you don’t see a time or project that works for you, give us a call!
