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!"

Inkle Weaving is a fun way to learn about weaving without the investment of expensive equipment to start out. An Inkle loom is a portable belt loom that can be warped up in an afternoon and woven in 3-4 hours. Inkle bands can be used to make belts, straps, bookmarks, ornaments and more. You will learn to warp your loom and read patterns so you can re-warp a loom on your own. Students may bring your own loom or rent a loom from the instructor.

Cost: $ 110.00
Often the hardest part of weaving is knowing what fibers to choose, what colors to mix, what weave structure is best for your project and how best to finish a piece. In this class students will learn all about how to match heddle/reed sizes to yarn weights as well as how to adjust sett based on weave structure. Learn more about what yarns are best suited for the warp and weft as well as how to blend yarns of different weights and materials to create one cohesive piece. In class Sara will show lots of samples and share ideas on how to get color combinations that will pop. A portion of class will be dedicated to reviewing warp and weft calculation questions and advice on specific projects are encouraged. This class is intended to help rigid heddle, table loom or floor loom weavers of any level continue their mastery of weaving.

Cost: $ 60.00

Sweater Design Workshop with Ann Budd via ZOOM!

This is a class on designing your own sweater from scratch. The construction will follow the Modified Drop-Shoulder Sweaters in The Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns. The book is not necessary, but you may find a copy to be helpful. The advantage to designing your own sweater is that you're not limited by the yarn, gauge, or size given in a pattern. For this, which may be the first sweater you design on your own, we'll follow modified drop-shoulder construction worked from the bottom up, which is easiest for new designers once you've determined your stitch pattern for the body, the armholes and neck are easily shaped with decreases and the sleeve caps require no shaping.
