Knitting, Crochet, Spinning, Felting & Other Classes, Events, Groups & Workshops.


Classes, groups & clubs


The way these are done now have changed, at least for the time being. Please be patient, and kind. We have had to adapt and evolve our class, groups and club settings to both protect our valued and vulnerable customers, staff and families as well as provide for our patrons. That being said, view each club/classes specifics on each sign up page.


  • Currently scheduled Matrix or Specific Project classes.
  • Weekly ongoing classes that  you can start any time. 
  • Drop-in knitting, crochet, spinning & weaving groups. These have been, only temporarily we hope, converted into "clubs" each will have it's own day, a limit of people meeting for that day and have monthly dues. 
  • Build Your Own Class 
  • One on One Instruction

We have new policies and parameters for classes and clubs, see here for full details.

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!

The Changing Seasons of Life KAL

We've all lost loved ones over the years, sometimes it's nice to have a specific project to remember them by, theoretically even better if they were a crafter and you can make the item from their inherited stash or just in a color you know they'd like. Personally, 2020 sucked really badly, I lost 4 loved ones; 2 aunts at the same time (and nearly a grandmother) and an adopted brother and dad back to back with only weeks between them to different cancers. I am still missing the dear friends lost in the few years before that. Sometimes it's good to bond with others over shared grief, so I am hosting a KAL (crochet is welcome too, but I'll have to research pattern suggestions). I found and fell in love with a pattern and it's story which is a tribute to Elisa Izquierdo.

  • Pattern suggestions: In Honor of Her
    • A 2 color brioche zigzag lace pattern with a 3rd, similar colored boarder of lace. 
    • Yarn: Fingering weight yarn. If you have an inherited skein (or 3) that you have been saving for the "right" pattern, this may be perfect for it.

      • MC: 350 yards; CC1: 350 yards; CC2: 310 yards
  • Or In Honor of Her Too
    • Yarn: Fingering weight yarn. If you have an inherited skein (or 3) that you have been saving for the "right" pattern, this may be perfect for it.

      • MC: 778 yards; CC1: 16 yards; CC2: 350 yards
  • Both patterns feature:
    • larger finished measurements makes it easier to style for a variety of body types
      • IHOH  -  Wingspan 88” | Depth 20.5”
      • IHOH2  - Wingspan 85.5” | Depth 27”
    • fun and interesting construction
    • engaging textured lace section
    • modern off-center triangle shape for easier wear -- stays on your shoulders and can be worn as a scarf
    • perfect project to showcase artisanal yarns with interesting color patterns such as speckles and luxury yarn base for the lace
    • pattern includes written instructions, charted instructions, and a schematic
  • Join us for a cast-on party on Monday October 4th @ 5:30pm  (limited seating, so sign up early)

  • A brokenhearted goodbye to Judie Wise.

She was encouraged to teach classes and did so 4 days a week for over 15 years. Judie learned to knit and crochet at age 3, from “Grandmom”, who […]
