Classes

Online knitting classes are currently available for download on a variety of topics. Each download includes instructional demo videos, practice exercises (with written instructions), relevant images, and a full recording of a previously held class with lecture and commentary. 

 

Once the class has been purchased, you will receive an automated email confirmation for your purchase. The download link will arrive in a second email, directly from me (please note that this system is not automated, so it may take up to a few hours to receive). I kindly ask that you do not share these materials with any unregistered participants, both in public and private settings.

 

All lessons are taught on a Brother 965i standard gauge machine. I can also instruct for Silver Reed and believe the lessons can be effective for most brands. Please email me if you have questions or concerns with your machine set-up.

 

Zoom classes will likely resume in the fall. If you are interested in 1-on-1 lessons, please email me (all@allknitwear.com) to discuss rates.
