Proof of vaccination No Longer Required for in person classes & private lessons

For in person classes we are making a change & no longer requiring proof of vaccination status to participate in a class or private lesson. 
For the safety of everyone we ask our customers/students, staff and teachers to stay home if sick. 

Anyone who wishes is encouraged to wear a mask if that makes being in the shop more comfortable.  For those not comfortable in a class/group setting private lessons are always available. 

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
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!"

Spinning with Intention: Fiber Prep & Spinning

Join Darla and Mark from Warp and Woolens to discover your Spinning Superpower by making the perfect yarn for your knitting, crochet or weaving project! This is the second class of a three-part series. We will explore fiber prep techniques, including combing, carding, flicking, and drum carding. We will then demonstrate and practice worsted and woolen spinning techniques. Each class segment is independent, but they are better taken as a series.
