Here we are mid September.
There is a nip in the air and days are getting shorter. I am knitting up a few items for the classes and I know that many of you are thinking about and planning your fall knitting.
Last year we had great classes, but we had some scheduling problems. Many students who wanted to take classes couldn’t because they didn’t fit into their schedule. This season I am trying out a new format for this years classes.
Over the next week I will post class descriptions here and the type of class set-up they need. For example our class set-ups are as described below;
A Class has a project that requires 2 or more, 2 hour sessions over a period of a few weeks. Classes will run on Thursday evenings from 5:00 to 7:00 or Tuesday afternoons from 2:00 to 4:00.
A Workshop has a project or technique that require a 6 hour session on one day only. Workshops run on Saturdays only.
A Drop-in is just that, a one hour quick class to learn a specific technique – this is the class that we recommend for the new knitters. Our drop-ins currently are Wednesday and/or Friday afternoons from 4:00 to 5:00. They are $10.00 per session. Please call ahead as I will take only 4 students.
Mad About Ewe – 250 – 754 – 0785
As I post the new classes / workshops and their projects please call the store and let us know if you are interested. We will take your name and phone number. When we have enough students to run a class / workshop we will organize times and dates that will work for the most students. If we have enough students we will keep running new sessions of each class until the demand has been met.
Cowichan Style Knitting – is a style of colour work knitting that carries and catches the colours every stitch, creating a more solid style of knit.
Projects – Sitka Poncho, cowichan style of colourwork only or OokPik toddler sweater and hat, combines cowichan style colourwork and intarsia.
This is a class and requires 3 , 2 hour sessions. Must have basic knitting skills.
I will be posting a new class or workshop everyday over the next few days. Please contact us if you see something that interests you!
