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!

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!"

Spinning Classes

Spinning 101

Put your hands on a spindle and feel the fiber being turned into yarn. This class will begin with a discussion on fiber and a basic lesson on using a spindle. You will take the spindle and some fiber home to practice. In the 2nd lesson we will check in on our techniques and evaluate our yarn. This lesson will include instruction on plying on a spindle. You will have another week to practice and then you will try out a spinning wheel. Look at all the wonderful yarn we have spun!

Spinning Beads and Baubles

Love the BLING or just want to spin your own novelty yarn? Use embellishments of beads and baubles to create a yarn that is uniquely your own. Traditional techniques are turned on their head using fun colors and new materials. Learn how to securely attach beads and make baubles in your yarn. This rapid fire class is guaranteed to excite your spinning and spark your creativity.

Cost: $ 45.00


Embroidery for Beginners

This class is great for beginners or anyone wanting to dust off their embroidery skills. In class, you will create a sampler using eight stitches found in the CozyBlue embroidery kits available in the store. We will go over embroidery basics and you'll learn the back stitch, split stitch, stem stitch, chain stitch, satin stitch, fishbone, woven wheels and French and colonial knots. You will leave with your sampler and the skills to finish your kit at home.

Spiraling Stripes Crochet Hat

Striped hats are a great way to use up smaller balls of yarn in your stash, but how can you work them without lots of color changes and ends to weave in? The answer is crocheting in spiraling continuous rounds. Spirals are fun to make and a great way to create seamless fabric, which is perfect for a stretchy comfy hat.
