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

Call 303-678-8242

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!"

Weaving Classes

Weaving the Perfect Towel
- Aug 18, 2019 09:00 am

Towels are the weaver's muse. They are the perfect platform to show off all kinds of colorwork, structural elements, and style. Students learn what makes a good towel, techniques for warping fine yarns, weaving with multiple colors, measuring on the loom, and finishing considerations to create a textile that has drape, absorbency, and pizzazz.

Cost: $ 135.00
Swatching for Weaving
- Aug 18, 2019 06:00 pm

Have you had an idea, headed to the loom, and then halfway through through your brilliant idea, think, "oh, this isn't what I had in mind at all." Swatching allows you to get to that knowledge quicker. 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.

Cost: $ 30.00


Tour de Fleece 2019 with Longmont Yarn Shoppe

Join Longmont Yarn Shoppe as we celebrate Tour de Fleece 2019. This is a loosely organized event that takes place during the Tour de France (July 6-28th). Handspinners spin yarn as the cyclists spin their bike wheels. Everyone is welcome to participate no matter how much or little yarn you spin. The concept of the event is to challenge yourself, spin and have fun.
