Upcoming Fiber Friday Events


Time Saving Knitting FIBER FRIDAY with Holli Yeoh via ZOOM!
October 1, 2021

Knitting boils down to just knitting and purling. But it’s how you finesse those stitches and keep track of them. How you make those stitches and care for them. That’s what leads to the success and failure of your project. It also leads to how you feel about the knitting experience. It’s the little tricks along the way that add to the enjoyment factor. The more you enjoy it, the more you like the results, the more you want to knit. Enjoyment and fulfillment are what it’s all about.

Class Start Time: 6PM Eastern, 5PM Central, 4PM MTN, 3 PM Pacific


Your ZOOM Link will be sent the evening before and about 1 hour before the event. Check your spam filter if you do not see it.

Interested in Intarsia? FIBER FRIDAY with Holli Yeoh via ZOOM!
October 8th and 15th, 2021

Tackle the intricacies of intarsia to add blocks and motifs of colour to your knitting. You’ll learn all the basics including joining colours, avoiding holes, managing all those ends and tangles, and reading graphs. We’ll also cover tension issues and show you how duplicate stitch can be used to fix mistakes or add even more colour, after the garment is done. There is nothing to fear; by the end of this workshop, you’ll have the confidence to work with colour.

Class Start Time: 6PM Eastern, 5PM Central, 4PM MTN, 3 PM Pacific

How it Works


"The class worked really well over Zoom. Stephanie did a great job of demonstrating the techniques needed, and had two cameras going so we could see her face and her hands while she was teaching. It was nice to interact with the other class members, too." - Cheryl A.

About Online Classes with Longmont Yarn Shoppe

We have identified a number of classes that lend themselves to being offered in a virtual classroom via Zoom.  

Our teachers are very knowledgeable and experienced in the topic they are teaching, and will be using 2 cameras so you can not only see and hear them, they can also demonstrate what they are teaching as well.  Supplies must be shipped in advance of the class so please plan accordingly.  Check out our handy tip sheet for using Zoom.  

We recommend all students use a device larger than a phone to be able to see what is being taught.  

We stand behind our programs. If you try online learning and decide it isn’t a fit, we will refund 100% of your class fee, or it can be transferred to an in-store class once we are open to the public again. 

We do ask that you use yarn and products from LYS for our Knit/Crochet-A-Longs and our classes.  

There are 2 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.
