Want to learn how to knit? Or need a refresher because you haven't knit in a long time? In this class you will learn how to cast on and create the basic stitches of knitting, how to “read” your work, and how to fix mistakes. No previous experience is required.
This is an ongoing class. You can start any session and the teacher will work with you at your pace. Take as many classes as you wish to gain the confidence to make a simple project like a washcloth, scarf, cowl, or fingerless gloves.
Ongoing support is always available in the store at any time during our open hours. If you want more extensive help, we can arrange private lessons. You are also welcome to come to Stitch & Bitch on Thursday evenings where there is usually casual help available (and a lot of fun!).
Cancelations/refunds: If for whatever reason you want to withdraw from a class, please do so at least 48 hours before the scheduled start time of the class for a full refund. No-shows and cancellations less than 48 hours in advance of the class start time are not eligible for a refund. Please respect the teacher and your fellow students by not attending class if you are feeling sick or have had a known recent Covid exposure, even if it is within the 48-hour non-refundable window.
