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.


This is a choose your own project class, you can learn to knit socks, fair isle, intarsia, entrelac, lace, or whatever you like, in our Beyond Beginner classes, so get your name and deposit in now to hold your place, Max 6 students. 604-275-1239

Next Beyond Beginner Knitting and Crochet, Wednesday night class with Edita will start Sept. 7 - October 12, 2016, from 7-9PM.  $110 for 6 weeks, next Friday morning class starts Friday, Sept. 9 - June 3, 2016 and Saturday afternoon from 2-4PM can start Sept. 10/16.  If you are interested, make sure to get on the wait list, as there is almost always something coming up that will prevent at least 1 student from making it, you know life happens when we are making other plans! 

Join Edita for help with that project you are dying to tackle but know you will need help! This is the class that you have been waiting for, because you can knit anything you want and the teacher will be able to guide you with whatever it is!  If you aren't sure what you want to make in class, come on in and see all our samples, which you can try on and see what the finished product looks and feels like.  Or, choose from our many patterns for just about anything!!   If you are wanting to learn to knit, you can also join this class, and Edita will teach you from scratch!  Beginners are lent needles and yarn to practise with, and if you wish to knit something once you have learned, you can choose something from our many patterns and yarns and away you go!

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/crochetter 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 more than 50 years! "What the heck does this mean? Oh, well, I will just start something else!"   We could do this Monday afternoons, 10-12 or 12-2,  $110 for 6 weeks, MIN. 4 STUDENTS, MAX. 6. 604-275-1239.  This class could also be a regular beginner or beyond beginners as well, we can do both in one class.
