We are currently teaching private lessons in our shop. If you are a beginner who would like to learn the basics of knitting, crocheting or tunisian crocheting, we recommend booking a lesson with us! We like to teach the basics in person to make sure you really have the hang of it before moving onto our virtual skill-building classes. All lessons are one-on-one, socially-distanced, and masks are to be worn the entire time by both the teacher and student (as well as everyone else in the shop).
If you are one of our customers and refer someone to us for a beginner lesson, you will be credited 200 loyalty points in our rewards program for each referral. Please contact us for more details on getting enrolled if you haven't already.
Private lessons are $35 per hour and typically only one hour is needed to get started. Supplies are additional and students will receive 10% off the supplies they need to get started.
A semi-private lesson for two is $60 per hour and for three is $85 per hour. Lessons must be pre-paid to book the time slot on our calendar and the instructor.
Our beginner offerings are shown below, however, any of our virtual classes or anything else you want to learn can also be accomplished one-on-one in a lesson. To schedule one, please contact us at 773.486.8996 or [email protected].
Learn to Knit
We start off our knitting beginners with a simple chunky cowl. You can opt for one skein of yarn to make a single loop (shown above) or two to make an infinity cowl. It works up quickly and gives you the foundation you need to continue on. The basics learned are casting on, the knit stitch, binding off, seaming, and weaving in ends.
Learn to Crochet
We start off our crochet beginners with a simple chunky cowl as well. You can opt for one skein of yarn to make a single loop or two to make an infinity cowl (shown above). It works up quickly and gives you the foundation you need to continue on. The basics learned are foundation chain, single crochet, double crochet, seaming, and weaving in ends.
Learn Tunisian Crochet
Tunisian Crochet is like a hybrid of knitting and crocheting. It is ideal for knitters, crocheters, or someone who has yet to try either. You can opt for one skein of yarn to make a single loop (shown above) or two to make an infinity cowl. This cowl also works up quickly and will teach you the basics of Tunisian Crochet.
