Classes

Online knitting classes are now being introduced on various topics. Classes will continue to be added, so check back for availability. Sessions include a brief lecture, technical instruction, work time / trouble-shooting, and Q&A. If you are unable to attend a live session, a recording can be sent to you instead. 

 

All classes are taught on a Brother standard gauge machine. I can also instruct for Silver Reed and believe the class can be effective for most brands. Please email me if you have questions or concerns with your machine set-up.
