We love to teach at LYS, and we hope we've created the perfect list of choices for you, but we know how busy life can be......so, we offer "your class, your way!" at Longmont Yarn Shoppe.  What does that mean?

Well, you see the perfect class, but it's not at the right time!  You see the project you've always wanted to make, but we offered that class LAST MONTH and you missed it!  Have no fear!  Gather 3 of your friends, work with one of our staff, and we will work to set up a qualified instructor to make the perfect class, your way!

Hear what Anne had to say about her perfect class:   "Three friends and I arranged for our own personal felted clog class with Kris at the Longmont Yarn Shoppe.  It was great for many reasons!  First, we were able to get so much personal attention.  Kris is a knowledgeable, patient and fun teacher.  We are all very pleased with our clogs and will certainly be scheduling another class- I think socks are next!!" 

LYS Private Lessons are ideal if you prefer to work one-on-one, have a hectic schedule, need a refresher, or have a specific project you'd like some extra help with.  Just call 303.678.8242, email info@longmontyarn.com, or stop by to schedule your lesson.  Our private lesson rate is $25.00 for 45 minutes, and $35.00 for one hour.

We have multiple classes in the summer on Thursdays which BEGIN on June 1st. Click Link to see a list of upcoming dates. Needle felting is the process of turning a pile of wool into different shapes and artistic designs, by using a special barbed needle. As the needle is poked back & forth into the pile of wool, the special barbed end catches the fibers and binds them together. We have chosen some basic themes for Needle Felting that will ensure success and build confidence, plus allow for each child's unique style to emerge. Students will be working with a barbed needle, so need to be mindful of safety during class.
