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

or stop by soon to schedule your lesson.

 


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


Color and Weave VIA ZOOM!
- Mar 14, 2021 11:00 am

Unlock new ways to create pattern in your weaving with how color is arranged in the warp and weft! Color and weave opens the door to endless patterns and designs. In this class we will design scarves using selecting from contrasting yarns that mix multiple patterns on one warp. This class will help students build confidence in designing their own patterns as well as direct warping techniques that make color shifts easy!

Cost: $ 120.00

- Apr 11, 2021 11:00 am

If you have always wanted to learn how to weave but have been nervous to take the plunge this is the class for you! The rigid heddle loom is a small but mighty tool for weaving. This class will go over the ins and outs of setting up the loom as well as a variety of different weave structures. Students will learn plain weave as well as how to use a pick up stick. No prior weaving experience is needed but at the end of three weeks you will be weaving away!

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.
