That’s our line up for September. As always, if a timing doesn’t work for you, just let us know and we will try to arrange other times for the classes.
The beginner/refresher class will run in October in the evening and on a Saturday. Please let me know if you’d like to sign up for either of those times.
Pass this along to other knitters. We’d love to have our classes, Wednesdays and Thursdays so full that we have to buy more chairs.
