In March and April, we will teach you to crochet or knit by making fingerless gloves and mittens and in May and June, scarves and cowls. So whether you just want to learn crochet or knit skills or you have a particular project in mind, we have you covered. If you already know the basics of crochet or knit you are welcome to take any of the classes as a quick crochet or knit along. Check out our website for project details, dates and times.
