New Class Schedules and a sale

Hi all,

Today thru November 15 all yarn classes over $15 are on sale for $15.  So all my 2 1/2 hour classes are $15.  The sale does not affect arm knitting or kids classes.  There is also a bar code at the bottom of all syllabus pages that gets you 10% off class supplies.

Even if you don't want a class now, please consider passing the class schedule to someone who might want to learn.  Also consider bringing a friend to class.  Learning or relearning is more fun with a friend.

Now for the new classes.  First up are the crochet classes.  I have the schedule from November thru March.  Lot of new things in there.

I'm excited to introduce the machine knit classes.  These are primarily for those who have purchased an Ultimate Sweater Machine but any single board machine will be welcome.  The basics are the same for most.    Please share this information with anyone you know that has a knitting machine but doesn't use it for whatever reason.  It can be a fun and quick way to get a finished item.
