At Maine Yarn & Fiber Supply, we are embracing the energy of a new year and fresh possibilities, by offering a class schedule rich with new classes, and teachers. We are excited to have a team of very talented people joining our in house teaching circle. Our hope is to bring you, not only the best fiber, but also the best instruction around. Our new courses are robust, and interesting, with topics of interest for beginners as well as, seasoned knitters, and fiber artists. Stay tuned to this website, and to our FB pages for additions, and updates throughout the year. As always, we hope to see you on The Hill!
A minimum of 3 students must enroll. Registered students are entitled to 10% off all in-store purchases throughout the day of the class. Unless otherwise indicated, all classes will be $30.00. Cancellation must be at least 5 days prior to the date of the class in order to be refunded. Please come early so you have time to choose your yarn and needles, and get your pattern. As always, we have a wide array of beautiful yarns and colors to choose from.
Learn four new skills in one class. In this class you will travel through four stations, spending about 25 minutes with each instructor as you learn: Cables, Short Rows, 4 cast on techniques, and basic colorwork. Come to class prepared with a pre-knitted swatch in the round (on 16" circular needles), with about 3" already knit.
If you have ever chosen a pattern for the perfect knitted item, only to put it aside because the charts were intimidating, this is the class for you. Monica is a black belt knitter, teacher and pattern tester. She will unpack charts for you and help you learn to love them.
Reading Charts Workshop:
In this workshop, we’ll have fun knitting a pretty lacey mug mat while taking the mystery out of reading charts. Please bring US 6 (4 mm) needles to class with you. The yarn and pattern will be supplied for you so there will be an additional materials fee of $5.00 for this workshop.
This class runs from 12 pm-2 pm
