We keep our class sizes small to ensure each student gets personalized attention. For this reason we require students to register for our classes in advance with payment.  We have a class minimum of 3 students for any session to run, so it may be fun to sign up with a friend or two! Please note that our classes are geared towards adults. We do not currently offer group instruction for students under the age of 16. (Students 8 - 15 years old, are welcome to book in to Private or Semi-Private Lessons. See our Classes Page, or give us a call for availability.)

Help Clinics

We also offer ongoing Help Clinics for those of you that have questions that may not need fully dedicated attention, but more than a 3 minute quick fix! Help Clinics are 90 minute group sessions ($25) for you to bring your questions and be able to sit and work through your project challenges in a fun social atmosphere with an instructor on hand to help you along with your knitting and crochet projects.    (ex. Sewing in ends and seams, help reading your pattern, learning a new stitch like cables, help getting back on track when a mistake occurs)  These Clinics are not Learn To Knit 101 classes ... While newer knitters are welcome, we are super keen to help you continue projects and get you back on track as mistakes occur, you will need to be comfortable with the Knitting 101 level skills to get the most out of clinics.   See our Classes Page for the details!
