The start of a new year is the perfect time to learn something new. One of the things I love most about knitting and crochet is regardless of how adept you are or how long you’ve been doing it, there is always something new to learn. Learning new things is good for you, good for the soul, and good for your brain.
With all of the extreme makeovers I’ve been doing behind the scenes, it seemed only fitting to revamp our classes and schedule.
a focus on technique
Our focus on learning new techniques has intensified for the upcoming year. We rethought our approach to classes, and how to intertwine techniques with interesting projects. Rather than working merely on one project, our new FOCUS classes will offer a variety of projects from which to choose. If you have your eye on a particular design, bring it along and we will be happy to advise.
The winter schedule features both knit and crochet classes, with a focus on ENTRELAC, FAIR ISLE, AMIGURUMI, AND TUNISIAN CROCHET.
KNIT WITH SWAK has morphed into GATHER. The concept will remain the same, but with additional weekend offerings. Knitters and crocheters alike can still gather together each Tuesday of the month. For those unable to attend on Tuesdays, we are adding the last Saturday of the month to the GATHERING schedule.
Project help will be available, or simply come and enjoy the company of other knitters and crocheters. If you need help with your project, assistance isn’t limited to these days. You might want to check in with us first to make sure the right person is available to assist, but otherwise we’re happy to help at just about any day or time.
The Beginner Bunch continues the first Saturday of each month. This is a class for those who have never knit or crochet before, or are new to the craft and wanting to learn more. We’ve made this class super simple, packaging all yarns and supplies into fun Beginner Boxes – check them out on our website!
