While I’m not categorically stating that these classes will lead to JEDI KNIGHTHOOD, I must say that the bolt of light bouncing off the dome right outside our classroom window can’t be without meaning. That’s what these classes are about: finding MEANING in the stitches (rhyme, reason, loops through loops, it’s all good).
Join us for a fun time of wielding sticks and hooks and string. The sky’s the limit on your learning in Knitting and Crochet. Bring your creative self, inquisitive about how these stitches can grow into gorgeous fabric, pouring from YOUR HANDS.
