Sample Schedule of Classes
Introduction to Beginning Knitting

According to Wikipedia “Sashiko” is a striking hand-sewing technique that originated in ancient Japan. In Japanese, its name means “little stabs”—a reference to the plain running stitch that makes up sashiko’s geometric, all-over patterns.” It is relaxing and requires only a printed design, sashiko thread, needles and a thimble making it very portable as it is completed without a hoop. This class will introduce you to the supplies and techniques while you stitch a patch, coaster or other simple project of your choosing. Class fee: $20.00
Jelly Roll Rug
One package of 2 1/2” strips will make this beautiful 30” x 40” rug. Purchase a perfectly color coordinated package of 40 strips or cut 2 1/2” strips from your stash. Fill the strips with cotton batting. We have packages of precut batting strips or cut your own and join with fusible batting seam tape. This class will teach you step by step instructions to get you started and enable you to easily finish your rug at home. Make coasters, hot pads, placemats, even a tree skirt using this fun technique. Class fee: $20.00
