Have A Knitting Party!
Instructor(s): Chris Appleton & Ramona Chesley

There must be a minimum of four people in a private party and a maximum of ten people.
  •  We suggest starting with a two hour party, which will give you an introduction to yarn and needles and start you casting-on, learning the knit stitch and binding-off. Most students will learn enough in one class to start and complete a simple scarf or cowl. After the first party you can decide if you would like to have a second party and continue your lessons.
  • The amount for a Beginning Knitting party is $50 per person, this includes all materials.
    Each person will receive a size 7 circular needle, 250 yards of merino wool yarn (you will have a choice of colors), basic
    instructions, and a beginner pattern. If you decide to continue with a second party/class, you will only be charged a $15 hourly rate.
  •  We do request that all students prepay for the first party via PayPal or check.
  •  For those of you who already know how to knit, pick something new you and your friends would like to learn: embellishing your clothes, knitting socks or lace,  finishing an old project, knitting a rag rug. Call or email us and we can discuss ideas for your personalized  party.
  • Different rates may apply to different parties.If you have questions, or would like to reserve a time for a party, please call 280-7557
