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

A note about Class, CLUB, CAL, & KAL materials. We ask that students purchase their yarn for the class or CAL/KAL, Club at LYS for the programs we offer. There 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!"

Weaving Classes


In this class students will weave tapestries using plain and soumak techniques lead by instructor David Johnson of Arachne Weaving. Class fee includes loom, warp and weft yarns.

Cost: $ 225.00
Learn how to maximize the potential of rigid heddle weaving by using two heddles at once! In this class students will learn how to weave two layers of cloth at once to create a closed tube or to get double width fabric. If you are looking to weave wider pieces, double heddle weaving will open that door allowing weavers to weave twice the width of their loom! Using two heddles at once also opens the door to working with finer yarns allowing for 20 or 24 ends per inch. Using two heddles is also a great place to dive into twill patterns. This class will cover it all, double width fabric, increased ends per inch and twill weaving!

Cost: $ 150.00

Wild Almond FIBER FRIDAY with Sarah Solomon

Sweater patterns contain all of the information you need to complete your project and yet no pattern can tell you all of the tiny little things an experienced knitter will do in the course of knitting a sweater, everything from how loosely to cast on, to how to keep track of your lengths, to exactly how to how to bury your yarn tails. Join designer and instructor Sarah Solomon for this sweater-knitting companion class featuring her top-down yoke cardigan pattern, Wild Almond, and learn to get the most out this (or any) sweater pattern. The aim of this class is to demonstrate all of the techniques used in the pattern as well as to answer some of the more over-arching questions in sweater knitting concerning sizing, ease and customization.

Bamboo-Along KAL via ZOOM

Join us at the Longmont Yarn Shoppe for a really special event - Bamboo-Along! This four-part knit along, hosted by bamboo yarn designer Jennifer Miller of Theodora's Pearls, will feature your choice of four patterns designed for Auxanometer, bamboo fingering. Two patterns are simple & elegant, perfect for confident beginners or those wanting a simple project! And two patterns are great for enhancing your skills, working with colors, & creating beautiful, unique shawls!

Nightshift KAL with Bryce VIA ZOOM

Join Bryce for the Nightshift KAL. The shawl was designed by Andrea Mowry. This easy to knit shawl will be done in Noro Geishi, a medium weight, long color change yarn simplifies the Nightshift pattern. This pattern is worked flat on circular needles with the Mosiac colorwork technique featuring an I-cord finish.
