Beginner Needle Felting – Wed, Nov 16, 6 to 8 pm. Learn to make felt without getting wet! Needle felting uses barbed needles and a foam pad.

The project for this class is either a small bag, or for the adventurous types, a hat.  Either project will teach you all you need to know to get going and have something to take home with you at the end of class.

Learn to Knit a Dr Who Scarf – Fri, Nov 18, 6 – 8 pm. The scarf made famous by Tom Baker is a great way to learn how to knit. We’ve put together a yarn kit that’s based on The Witty Little Knitter’s pattern that has everything you need to make this scarf. Once the class is over you’re welcome to come hang out at the store & get scarf support.
