Introducing Fiber Fridays!

We've invited back some of the amazing guests we've hosted at Fiberside Chats for ongoing classes to Fiber Fridays! Take a deeper dive into techniques, learn new skills and unwind your week with LYS in our 2 - 3 hour classes on Fridays, hosted entirely on Zoom & recorded for your viewing enjoyment for up to 1 week. 

"I thoroughly enjoyed the Fiber Friday sessions. So much so that I signed up again for 2024.  The instructors were so knowledgeable and approachable for questions during the zooms.  I learned new techniques which will be helpful. The only downside is my project que has grown exponentially (but have no fear, my stash can keep up)! 😂 "                  — Donna H.

"I did all the Fiber Friday this past fall. Every session gave me a learning experience, big, small or something I never thought about and now use.  We can always learn something.
LIFE is GOOD!"                                                                                                                                       - Nancy K.

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 for all classes (there may not be 2 cameras for KALs and CALS) 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.  

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.
