Class Requirements
Each class has a specific list of equipment and/or knitting pieces that you need to bring with you. You will be supplied with this list at registration.

NOTE: Students are asked to wear a mask and remember to bring their own measuring tape, scissors, yarn needle, pen and notebook as we are not allowed to loan ours to you.

Class Registration
Because we often have waiting lists for the classes, we require tuition to be paid when you register. You may register in person or over the phone with a credit card. For more information or if you have any question or comments please click here and use our online form.

Refund Policy
Refunds will be offered only under the following conditions:
  • Class cancellation by instructor (full refund)
  • If withdrawing from a class before it starts, no refund can be offered unless a replacement student is registered and paid
  • No refunds are available for any reason once the class has started
The refund policy is strictly enforced so that we do not have to turn people away from a class especially when there is a waiting list.
