All classes are subject to a paid registration minimum of 2 student, 2 days prior to the class start date. If this requirement is not met, the class may be canceled. Students who pay for a class that is canceled will be contacted and a refund will be issued according to the store’s refund policy, or the student can be enrolled in another class.
Every week, start any time
Knitting/Crochet 400 level Project Classes – (Offered many mornings, days and evenings through the week, see calendar)
Project Class is a figurative "free-for-all" in terms of what you can learn. It is an ongoing class that has been around since Judie started teaching for Sheep's in the late 90's. You can learn any Matrix class 200+ and 100 level depending on existing class size.
Skills Needed: Come as you are! We can take you where you want to go!

Winter Tee & Tea with Bellatrista ~
I don't know about you, but I can't wear my heavy wool sweaters when I'm indoors all day either at work or at home. I really like to wear my hand knits but I need something that is comfortable with temp changes. Dale at Bellatrista makes wonderful yarns with unique fibers that are just right. Milk, Soy, Bamboo, banana and Peppermint are shiny and soft like silk and breathable like cotton & linen. We've chosen a selection of long sleeve tee patterns that are worked in Dk weight or 2 strands of fingering weight held together; you could even hold the laceweight milk with the sport bamboo to get the right gauge.
- Select pattern from Ravelry Bundle here.
- Choose any DK, sport & lace combo or double fingering combo in any variety of Bellatrista yarns.
- Starts Feb 1st, but if you start later, it's fine.
- Join the ravelry thread and/or facebook group for participants to chat and share their progress, ask questions and encourage one another!
- Ends whenever you get done, there's no rush!
- Prizes - there will be a prize drawings!
- 1 drawing for all participants* will be drawn on Feb 15th.
- 1 prize for first finished as well as featured photos and free blocking for your tee!
**participants are described as: customers who purchase the bellatrista yarn & pattern from us for this KAL by Feb 14th)
We’ll build on your skills and teach you how to make a fabric that doesn’t curl for making scarves on long looms. See Sign-up page for details.
Free coffee and tea will be available, as always. See calendar for days and times.
