Beginner Classes

April - June 2014

Learn to knit, crochet, or spin(!) with one of our fabulous teachers.  Get the basics down with these classes, and then graduate to something more adventurous!

To register for a class, please call the shop at  (410) 662 - YARN (9276)  

and pay with a credit card.  Classes fill quickly!  Don't wait!


NOTE: You must be paid-up one week before class starts, or we will not hold your spot.

Sorry, classes are for adults 16 years and older, unless otherwise stated.


$60 class fee includes yarn, needles, and 4 hours of instruction.
Instructor: Mary Skeen
This two-session class is for those of you who have never picked up needles and yarn, or who may have learned as a child and forgotten everything.  In the first class, you will learn to knit and bind off. Second class will include casting on, purling and reading a pattern. You should be able to knit up a scarf (yes, you will!) after leaving these classes, and maybe do some ribbing too.

Note: when you call to register, please use the session LETTER.

(We try to keep the class availability updated as frequently as possible.)

Learn to Crochet


$60 class fee includes yarn, hook, and 4 hours of instruction.
Instructor: Melissa MacMichael

All crochet stitches start from a basic chain that is in turn started with a slip knot. Once you know how to make a chain and work your way back along the chain you will know how to crochet. It's that simple, really! We will also learn the basic stitches of crochet: single, double, and triple crochet, with which you can make virtually any crochet project. You will also learn to read/understand stitch abbreviations and (hopefully) basic patterns!


Sundays, April 13 & 27                               2:00 - 4:00

Sundays, June 22 & 29th                            2:00 - 4:00
