workshops, knit and crochet classes.

Soon, we will be able to offer even more classes, so if there are any specific techniques that you would like to learn, or any specific projects you want to make, let us know right away and we will see if we can find enough students to offer a class for that subject.  Otherwise, our teachers are capable of teaching whatever skill you want to learn, so we offer classes for individual needs and almost always have a class available that you can join.  If you can't commit to the full six weeks offered at the time, don't worry, you can make it up in another class.

New Class! BLAST THOSE UFOS! Edita would like to help you finish your UFO'S!! Unfinishing objects, for those who don't know. Every knitter has at least one of these! For whatever reason, we're stuck, it's boring, he's gone, hate the colour now, just a few of many stalling reasons we just can't seem to get it done. Join other knitters and have fun concentrating on one project for this class and get help from the teacher as you whip along! Or bring all your smaller UFO projects and finish a bunch of them! Don't be shy! We all get stuck sometimes, even me, who has knit for 50 years! "What the heck does this mean? Oh, well, I will just start something else!" We could do this Monday nights, 7-9PM, or Friday nights, 7-9PM. $110 for 6 weeks, MIN. 4 STUDENTS, MAX. 6. 604-275-1239 


 

CLASSES WITH WILLINA COLLINS.

New Workshop!  Jeweled Scarf with Felted Closure with Willina,  Monday Nights, April 4 to April 25, 6PM - 8PM

Image title

This mini beaded scarf is the perfect size to complement any look.  Beads are nestled with a few knitted lace repeats, the scarf can be worn alone or is perfect with any jacket.  The distinctive V Shape with its graceful flow embellished with beads creates an extraordinary and very versatile neck piece.  Due to its sleek size and design potential for creative beading, this scarf could also be a stunning alternative to other forms of neck jewelry enriching either casual or elegant outfits.

Next, spark your creativity by making a wet-felted, unique, free-form shape as your scarf closure.  While laying out thin layers of wool roving, you will cleverly include a hidden magnet which allows your closure to be very versatile.  By using contracting colours or re introducing a few beads, you can create a chic contemporary scarf closure.  The short time requirement for this project makes it a fun "knit it anytime" activity and a perfect gift for any occasion.

Materials list

Needles: 4 and 5mm circular

Crochet Hook: 1.25mm steel hook
