Classes

We love seeing people learn new creative crafts! That's why we teach classes of all kinds, especially beginning classes. We love watching the progress after a customer takes their first beginning class. Please find below the class lists for each month. You can also find class descriptions below. We hope to offer online classes as well very soon!


REGULARLY SCHEDULED EVENTS:

Spinning Group: Meets the first Thursday of every month.

Stitch Night: We keep the store open late every Thursday. Come hang out with us!

Private Lessons: Do you need significant help on a current project? Would you like to learn a new technique we aren't offering a class for? Do you want to learn a new craft, but can’t attend a weekend class? Schedule a private lesson today! We can work around your schedule, and can schedule your hour-long private lesson any time between 10 & 4. $45/hour, $25/30 minutes, $15/15 minutes (Time slots available on first come-first served basis.)
