Classes are a great way to improve your skills and learn new projects! Each month we offer basics for beginners including how to knit, how to crochet, and weaving, as well as more advanced project based classes. Most classes are 90 minutes long and cost $15, which doesn't include the cost of materials. We require that you purchase yarn from our store for the class. Weaving is a longer class at 3 hours and costs $25, and we provide looms for you to use in class. Classes can be refunded up to one week before scheduled class. Most classes are limited to 6 people so call us at 515-277-2770 to get reserve your spot!
