We offer classes for every level – from beginner through advanced.

Beginning Knitting Classes: weekly, year round on Wednesday 1-3PM and 6-8 PM. This class runs for five weeks. Learn the basics of casting on, the knit stitch, the purl stitch, two styles of ribbing, increasing, decreasing, and binding off. Our first project is a child's pullover sweater, knit “in the round.” The fee for five classes is $60.00 plus materials.

Weekly Thursday Knitting Classes (Intermediate level and up): After you have graduated from the beginning class, you can continue to develop your knitting skills by signing up for another series of classes.

For over 25 years Donna Kay has been a professional knitting teacher and designer. She is also an accomplished spinner. Her passion is “folk knitting” and she enjoys sharing her expertise with others. She has designed for yarn companies and knitting publications, including Knitter’s Stash and Christmas Stockings. In order to further promote traditional knitting, she started her own company, Tree of Life Designs.
