A note about Class, CLUB, CAL, & KAL materials. We require student to purchase their yarn for all classes, Crochet-alongs, Knit-alongs & Clubs at Longmont Yarn ShoppeThere are 2 main reasons for this:

  1.   We recommend yarn we know you will have success with. Learning a new skill is much more rewarding using the proper tools and resources. When students use materials other than what is suggested we can't assure your success.
  2.   Frankly, we exist only with your support. We need our community to shop with us so we can be here for the long haul. We bring in additional inventory to support classes, in anticipation of student purchases.


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!"

Crochet Classes

Use two large granny squares to make a cool and comfortable summer top. Choose a classic solid color or go with a self-striping yarn for more pizazz. This is a great first crochet garment with easy construction.

Basic Drop Spindle - One Session Class

Join Darla and Mark from Warp and Woolens to explore spinning with a drop spindle. Learn how to use a top whorl, bottom whorl or Turkish spindle, from making a leader, to spinning, and plying. You'll be amazed at how fun and easy it is to make your own yarn!


If you have trouble with stranded colorwork - it's too tight, not flexible, catches on fingers or jewelry, or generally just doesn't look good or feel comfortable, this is the class for you! Ladderback jacquard stranding, originally developed & used for machine knitting, is a version of double-knitting with only a one-stitch column. This technique can used in the round or flat! It?s particularly useful for motifs in which a single color is carried more than an inch, or when you need a stretchy, flexible garment such as a hat or cowl. This technique is easy to learn & apply to any stranded colorwork pattern!
