Classes

Your Class, Your Way

We love to teach at LYS, and we hope we've created the perfect list of class choices for you. But, we know how busy life can be. That’s why we offer "Your Class, Your Way" at Longmont Yarn Shoppe.

Maybe you see the perfect class, but it’s not offered at the right time for you. Or there's a project you’ve always wanted to make, but the class was offered last month and you missed it! Relax.

Gather three friends, speak with a member of our staff, and we’ll work to arrange for a qualified instructor to teach your perfect class, your way!

Private Lessons

Our private lessons are ideal if you prefer to work one-on-one, have a hectic schedule or need a refresher. If you have a specific project you'd like some extra help with, come see us.

Private Lesson Rates
$35.00 for 45 minutes
$40.00 for a full hour

Hear what Anne had to say about her class

"Three friends and I arranged for our own personal felted clog class with Kris at 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!"

By weaving a small swatch you can see if a given yarn will substitute well for another, if you like your color choices, or if your sett choice is right. Liz will demonstrate how to create the perfect swatch using the Purl & Loop's line of swatching looms and show examples of how swatching helped her fail faster and weave better.
