2011 Winter/Spring Class Schedule

Hi Everyone

Although we offer classes throughout the year, the start of a NEW year always feels like the perfect time to sign-up for a class, try a new project or technique.  I think it has something to do with the fact so many of us are just wrapping up the holidays where everyone else’s needs have come first and ours have been ignored.  Much like starting a project for yourself, signing up for a class at the start of a new year is a gift to yourself.

Our Education Manager Tina has put together a terrific schedule, I’d like to highlight a few classes:

  • We have scheduled several sections of Knitting I and II.  These classes teach the basic skills that every knitter needs to know.  If you or someone you know is just getting back into knitting or wanting to learn, these are the perfect pair of classes!
  • This semester we are offering the VERY popular Advanced Fearless Finishing & Sweater Construction.  These are two of the more critical classes in our Expert Knitter Program.  Our very own Dori will be teaching these classes and it is with IMMENSE sadness that I have to announce these will be the last classes that Dori is planning to teach.   This is significant and anyone who has spent anytime with Dori, much less taken a class with her knows what I am talking about.  Dori knows EVERYTHING when it comes to knitting.  EV-ER-Y-THING.  These two classes will fill fast.  They will continue in future semesters and our teaching team is basically going to suck every last iota of knowledge out of Dori but to say she will be missed is an understatement of epic proportions.

Needless to say, this is only a smattering of the classes we are offering but hopefully it’s enough to get you excited.  One of my resolutions is to further my own education so I’ll be taking a handful of classes this semester as time permits.  I’m thinking about learning to drop spindle, fearless finishing  and either Magic Loop or Knitting with Beads.  What are you interested in learning?

Enjoy!
