Long hot summer days are sometimes the best time to take a break from the everyday and learn something new. Besides time with like minded fiber folk, it means a few hours in a cool, air conditioned space! We have an extensive offering of classes this summer from truly basic, beginner courses all the way up to expert level skill building. Whether you knit or spin, crochet or weave, all of the above or none at all yet, we have the right class for you!

All new summer classes at WEBS! Read more on the WEBS Blog at blog.yarn.com

Try your hand at short rows, beginning rigid heddle weaving. Delve into Yarn 101, or better crochet pattern reading. Learn to fix your knitting mistakes, and spin on a wheel. Indulge in squishy brioche knitting or start filling that drawer with handknit socks!

Which classes will you take this summer? Hurry and register now, seats are filling fast!
