New Knitting Classes!

Allyson is a good sport when I bust the camera out unexpectedly!

It's spring, and big things are in the works! I am so happy to be offering classes again-- the Sweatshop of Love Studio is now open for workshops! Allyson, Laura and I are all offering new classes this spring in our new space, and we are pumped to share it all with you. 

Here are the classes I'm teaching:  

Short Rows: This intermediate-level technique class is for those who want to take their knitting in new directions! Learn how to create geometric shapes with short rows, a versatile technique used in garments, accessories, and knitting projects of all kinds. You will learn the "wrap and turn" as well as how to create your own little knitted art piece. Please bring US size 7 needles and several balls of worsted weight yarn. These can be odds and ends! The more colors you bring, the better. Graph paper and other notions will be provided.  
Saturdays May 9, 16, and 30, 2-4pm - $80.

Intro to Lace: Have you been eyeing all those gorgeous lace shawls, but are unsure how to tackle Lace Knitting? This class will teach you the basics of lace knitting, from simple eyelets to more complex stitch patterns. Learn the theories behind lace structures in the first two classes and take the optional third session to design your own stitch pattern! Please bring US size 7 needles and worsted weight yarn. Graph paper and all other notions will be provided. 

Sundays May 10 and 17, 2-4pm - $55. 
Add a 3rd class period (Design your own motif!) on Sunday May 31, 2-4pm - $80. 

One of the three of us will be on hand for the Expert Help series: 

Need a helping hand with that next challenging knitting, crocheting, embroidery, or cross stitch project? You've come to the right place! Take advantage of Allyson, Leah, and Laura’s many years of experience with teaching, designing, and fixing mistakes, with this guided class. Bring in your pattern and materials, and get instant, attentive help with each step. You'll be able to confidently finish that ambitious project and learn lots of new skills along the way! $20
Tuesday April 28, 7-9pm
Thursday May 28, 7-9pm
Sunday June 7, 10-12pm
