Classes & Workshops

Please see General Information for Workshops before registering and attending.

Sweet Yarns Courses

Information on our latest courses is available in our online store. You can either register there, or stop by the store to reserve your spot and get any homework.
Class prices do not include any materials unless otherwise noted. It is recommended that you take time to pick out and purchase any supplies before the class. All classes will be held in The Old Haunt lounge at the back of Sweet Yarns.
Our classes do fill up quite quickly, so if you are interested please register right away. If you are unable to get in, your name can be put on a waiting list as some of our most popular courses do get repeated.
We can only go over so much in a course. If you get stuck or need extra assistance, you are welcome to stop back in during store hours for help.
