Personal Training Sessions- Any day, any time
If you have a crazy schedule, or if you just prefer a private lesson, we’ll be happy to schedule some quality knitting time for you. $20.00 per hour for one-on-one instruction. Registration is required to ensure that we have the appropriate staff for what you wish to learn.
|Eden Prairie: If you love modular knitting, this is just fabuolus - almost any yarn will do. Sample is knit with Happy Feet in 3 different solids and a variegated for the center diamonds. All garter stitch so it's a great project for those "meditative" moments. Check out the Eden Prairie projects on Ravelry to see what other knitters have chosen for yarn and colors. Amazing!|
|Syncopation Bag: Another great modular knitting project is the Syncopation bag made with mitred squares.... what fun! There are several samples hanging in the shop and again, there are endless choices for color schemes and yarn - although the favorite seems to be Noro Kuryeon and Brown Sheep.|
Free On-going Events:
Sit & Knit-Sunday afternoons, Noon-5pm, and Monday 6-8:30pm
Sit & Knit is a great time to make some progress on a project, especially one you don’t want someone in your family to see yet. It's also a great time to get together with other gals (and guys) who knit and enjoy the camaraderie. We love to see each others' projects and share our great knitting stories.
If you have a knitting group that would like to meet in our shop, please call us to make arrangements. We are happy to accommodate knitters most anytime. The coffee and/or tea are always on and there are goodies on occasion too. We'll even offer a group discount of 10% on all purchases.
GOT A HANKERIN' TO SPIN?
There is tremendous interest in spinning and we have several folks who are pleased to do demonstrations with the wheels that are in the store. If you've seen a demonstration or given spinning a try, and would like to take a spinning lesson, please call the store (802-775-7800) to schedule a time.
We are a LOUET distributor and can special order spinning wheels, drum carders, and other fiber tools. If you're interested in learning to spin, we can arrange a one-on-one lesson at $20/hour. We can also rent you a spinning wheel to take home for the week to practice. If you'd like to purchase your own spinning wheel or other equipment, let us know and we can provide you a price for special orders.
