One of the things I had been looking forward to through the entire rebuilding process, was getting to use the amazing classroom space we had built in. If you visited us at the temporary space, you know we were cramped, but even before the fire, we were beginning to outgrow Stitch Space version 1.0.
The new classroom space is SO WONDERFUL for Stitch Night! We are able to fit so many more people, while still allowing everyone room to move around the shop, and squish the new yarn. Join us on a Tuesday from 5-8 to see for yourself!
Another thing the classroom has done for us, is allow us to host more knitting classes than ever before! We are getting ready to kick off our new schedule this next week, and I wanted to take a minute and tell you about some of the great classes we are offering! Are you ready to signup for one of the classes below, and take advantage of our new space? Call us at 417-673-2240 to register now! A couple of these are almost full!
Knit To Flatter: Saturday April 11, 12-1 PM
This is a great class to take if you are ready to start that first sweater project. We will discuss the design details to incorporate to help flatter your figure, as well as talk about a few universally flattering options. If you are going to spend the time making a sweater, it should look great and make you feel good! Take this before the CustomFit Sweater class for optimal results! One Session $25
CustomFit Sweater: Saturdays April 18, 25, May 2 & 9, 12-1 PM
Once you’ve figured out what you want to make, let’s make it a reality! This class uses the CustomFit sweater pattern generator to make any style of sweater, in any yarn, in your gauge! Topics include Good Sweater Fabric, Right & Left Slanting Increases & Decreases, Blocking, Seaming, Picking Up Stitches, Buttons, & More! Our goal with this class is to successfully get you through your sweater construction, to a garment you love & will wear all the time! A sweater doesn’t have to be an advanced project, you are welcome in this class as long as you can cast-on, knit & purl! Four Sessions, $80
(Ready to take your sweater construction to dream-sweater status? We are also offering a Completely CustomFit Class. See the details on the schedule here!)
Fiber 101: Saturday April 11, 2-3 PM
Whether you’re just starting out with knitting, or have been doing it for awhile, knowing which fibers to pick for each project can help you have more project success! This class will walk you through many of the options for natural & synthetic fibers, and what the properties of each are. I’m digging into my class materials from teaching Textiles at the University to help you choose the best materials for your knitting project! One Session $25
APRIL 18 & 25 SESSION FULL, MAY 16 & 23, 3-4:30 PM
Learn to knit this gorgeous colorwork cowl, that has no wrong side, with the two-handed method of working fair isle. We will be working a provisional cast-on, working in the round, and joining the piece with kitchener stitch at the end. This class is chock full of fun new techniques! Can’t choose 5 colors under pressure? We used the SweetGeorgia party of five mini-sets to make our shop sample. These sets have 5 pre-coordinated mini-skeins of yarn that mimic popular SweetGeorgia variegated colors…..gorgeous!!! Two sessions $50
Magic Number Knitting: April 25 & May 2, 10-11:30 AM ***ONLY 2 SEATS LEFT!***
This class will truly blow your mind! Learn how to create diamonds, stripes, argyles, ikat and more without ever changing yarns! We will swatch do a little (EASY!) math, and discuss which yarns work, and which ones don’t for this technique. Yarn is included in this class, so we can dive right in. At the end of the class, you will know how to choose a yarn to cast on for your own project utilizing Magic Numbers! Two sessions $60
Fix-A-Stitch Clinic: April 30, 6-7 PM
Yikes! You dropped a stitch again, and now you have to rip it out…ugh!!! Don’t rip it, learn how to fix it in this class! The Fix-A-Stitch tool offers a unique method for fixing mistakes from the right side of the work. Learn to use yours, or try out one of ours before you buy. ***Homework required, 4-day advance signup recommended!*** One Session $30
Felted Slippers: May 6, 13 & 20, 6-7:30 PM
You can see from the photo above that I love my felted slippers (maybe a little too much). This fun class will walk you through the process of knit and felt slippers with 100% wool yarn. We’ll even spend the last class felting our slippers together in the washing machine! Once you make one pair, you’ll be hooked, and will have a new go-to gift knitting project that you can make up in a weekend! Three Sessions $50
Continental W/ Grace: May 9, 10-11:30 AM
Try out the continental method of knitting, where you hold the working yarn in your left hand. Grace will take you through the whys and hows of this method to add it to your knitting arsenal. The first group that went through were all knitting and purling along by the end of the class time! One Session $40 ***Not a learn to knit, must already have basics!***
Socks Toe-Up, 2 at a Time!: May 16 10 AM-3 PM ***SPACE LIMITED IN THIS ONE DAY WORKSHOP!***
Have trouble making it to town for 3 separate classes for one technique??? Have no fear, the One-Day sock workshop is here! By popular request, we are offering this class in one full day instead of 3 separate sessions. Start the day learning how to cast on 2 socks at a time, increase for the toe, turn the heel, and bind off that ribbed cuff! We will provide the supplies, and the lunch! At the end of the day, cast on for a pair in sock weight, or whatever weight you choose. Walk away with our Super-Fabulous Sock Worksheet to help you in your sock-knitting adventures! One Session $75
Whew! That’s a lot of classes, and we can’t wait to use our new space and help you advance your knitting skills, or Learn to Knit! We offer beginner classes, too, so check out the full schedule here! Call us at 417-673-2240 to reserve your spot in a class.
Remember, some classes require homework, and many require purchase of yarn at Stitch Space. We do always give you a 10% discount on supplies used for your class, and we’ll be happy to give you a run down of what is required for a class before you signup!
Hope to see you knitting with us soon!
