Eyes On Learning!

Check our Website and Facebook page for upcoming classes! We are adding new classes and dates for favorites all of the time. Are you looking to learn something that we don’t have a class for? Let us know! We can either develop a class or do a private lesson.

Basics! Classes

Our Basics! classes teach you the beginning stitches that are the basis of all knitting and crocheting. You will also learn variations of the techniques and helpful tips. It’s all you need to get you started. The Beyond Basics! class teaches you the next step in your journey. Have Karin Sajdak help you through the crochet class or choose to learn knitting and have Heather Havens guide you.  Each Basics! class is one two hour session and costs $20. Call the Studio or stop by to register.

Crochet dates: April 25 Th 7p-9p, May 11 Sa 10a-12p, June 8 Sa 10a-12p

Beyond Basics Crochet dates: May 11 Sa 1p-3p, June 8 Sa 1p-3p

Knitting Classes

Sweater Series 2019 Spring

The Sweater Series is the must-take class of the season! Do you have knitting a sweater on your ‘some day’ list? Maybe you tried to make a sweater, but it fits your 13 year old niece better than you, except for the sleeves, which would fit your husband just fine. If so, this class is perfect for you. Amy Gallmeyer will take you from pattern to gorgeous sweater in this 4 session class. She will help with measurements, finding the right yarn for the right sweater just for you, and any techniques needed for your sweater. Ready to take the plunge?  Register and check out the specifics here.

Thursdays 7p – 9p
May 2, 16, 30, June 13, 27

 Oops! Fixing Mistakes
We all have done it… dropped the stitch, twisted a stitch, had our cable lean in the wrong direction. And we either try really, really hard not to make the mistake, or we put the project in the corner, waiting for the knitting fairy to fix it for us. After this class, you will be able to let go of the anxiety of perfection and use your corner for other things, like a bookshelf or side table. In this two hour session, Amy Gallmeyer will show you how to correct some of the most common mistakes that we make so you will be able to confidently fix those errant stitches. Please note that there is homework to be done for this class. Click on the date you are interested in for registration and homework assignment.

Strange Brew Anthology Hat
This is going to be an exciting class!  Are you ready to start knitting with more than one color? Come play with us and learn how to pick colors that work well together and learn different color work techniques. You will be choosing your own color work design pattern for your hat and learn how to make it. By the end of the class you will have yourself on the way to making your own beautiful and unique hat!
