Sweater Club

Every Tuesday from 6 - 8 PM, $10 per session

Attend only the sessions that work for you (RSVP each week is required). 
Project supplies (ie. yarn and pattern) to be purchased at Home Made.

Nothing compares to a handmade sweater, especially when it has a timeless and stylish fit and is made with quality yarn. If you'd like to add more handmade sweaters to your wardrobe, we're here to offer help, motivation and community along the way. New members are always welcome!

This “class” is structured a little differently. We’re offering a specific time and space to provide help and instruction for a group of knitters all working on sweaters. Instead of one class fee for a specific group of dates, you can show up to as many or few meetings as you please. If you require more help/instruction than can be provided during Sweater Club or you can't make it to our Tuesday night meetings, our Drop-In Knitting Help and private lesson services are available. Details about those services can be found here

To participate, choose a sweater project from our pattern selection and then purchase the yarn and pattern for your project in our shop. Cost is $10 per meeting and we ask that you RSVP by each Tuesday afternoon to let us know if you’re coming. We recommend that you feel confident in knitting basics like cast on, knit, purl, and bind off before joining us for this project.

Supplies: Materials are dependent upon your chosen sweater project. Project ideas (that have been or are currently being made in Sweater Club) include: GrampsKillybegs, Portland PulloverBlank Canvas, PalladioAntrorse, Flax, and Lucia Hoodie.  

 

Pillowcase for Charity

Free (please call to RSVP)
While we'd love it if you purchased your fabric in our shop  it is not required for this workshop as we are requesting that you donate your finished pillowcase. Just make sure the fabric is good quality and soft.

Sundays, July 16, 20 or 30 from 11AM - 3 PM

Want to sew a basic pillowcase for charity? We are making some to donate to Case for Smiles and can even drop them off to the local chapter rep for you, too. Bring your own fabric or purchase it in our shop and we'll walk you through the steps to make a simple pillowcase, free of charge. We'll even donate use of our sewing machines, rotary cutters, irons, and thread so you don't really need to worry 'bout a thing!

Please note that this is geared for ages 8+ and that instruction will not be as thorough as our typical beginner sewing classes. But, it will still be fun and hopefully you'll still learn something!

 

Craft Night to benefit C.A.R.A.

Wednesday, August 23 from 6 - 8 PM

Free with purchase of one of our cross stitch or embroidery kits (RSVP required)

We're hosting a donation-based class to benefit our local Coalition Against Rape and Abuse. Just grab one of our new cross stitch kits (like Red Gate Stitchery Cross Stitch Necklace Kit, Holiday Ornament Kit, Bamboo Key Ring Kit, or Leather Bracelet Kit) or one of our new Cozy Blue Embroidery Kits and RSVP to join!

Never tried cross stitch or embroidery? No problem! These kits are beginner-friendly. Plus, we'll be here to help you along with your chosen kit.

In lieu of a class fee, we're asking that you bring a donation for C.A.R.A. in an amount of your choosing and we'll pass it along to them.

 

 

 

  


Christmas Stocking Class


Christmas Stocking

$60 for three 2-hour sessions
(supplies not included)

Thursdays, July 13 & 20 and Wednesday, August 9
from 6 - 8 PM

Get a jump start on those hand knit Christmas stockings! This is a "choose-your-own-adventure" kind of knitting class where we will all be working from Melynda Bernardi's Comfort & Joy pattern book of 7 original stocking designs. Select a simple stockinette design or try your hand at color work for your stocking. Whichever you choose, you'll cherish these stockings year after year. And, you'll have plenty of time to make more if your goal is to create a set for the whole family.

This class is intended for beginner/advanced beginner knitters who know knitting basics. It's also helpful if you already have some experience with double pointed needles. But, if you don't, a patient attitude and adventurous spirit will take you far!

Homework: Knit your gauge swatch:  19 stitches and 27 rounds sts = 4 " in stockinette stitch (in the round).

Supplies: Comfort & Joy pattern book, worsted weight yarn in colors and yardage to complete your chosen stocking design, US 6 double pointed knitting needles (or size needed to obtain gauge -- we also have 12" circular needles that you could also use for part of your stocking if that's easier), stitch markers, and yarn needle to be purchased at Home Made.

 

Ankle Socks Class

Ankle Socks

$60 for three 2-hour sessions
(supplies not included)

Thursdays, August 3, 10 & 17 from 6 - 8 PM

Are you ready to learn how to knit socks? Or, maybe you already know the basics of sock knitting but want to try a fun new pattern and/or magic loop knitting vs. double pointed needles?

First, choose your pattern -- Rose City Rollers (pictured) or Saturday Matinee Socks (shown here). Then, decide whether you'd like to make them with double pointed needles or a long circular needle for magic loop. We'll guide you through making one ankle sock from cuff to toe, including cast on and joining in the round, turning the heel, making a gusset, sizing it for your foot, and closing up the toe with the kitchener stitch.

This class is intended for beginner/advanced beginner knitters who already know knitting basics like cast on, knit, and purl. And, remember, a patient attitude and adventurous spirit will take you far!

Homework: Knit your gauge swatch:  24 sts and 30 rows = 3 " in stockinette stitch in the round.

Supplies needed: Rose City Rollers or Saturday Matinee Socks knitting pattern, size US 1 (2.25 mm) double pointed needles OR 40" circular needle (or size needed to obtain gauge), one skein of fingering/sock weight yarn (such as Madelinetosh Twist Light, Manos del Uruguay Algeria, Schoppel Wolle Zauberball or Zauberball Crazy -- you'll need a second color if you want to add a contract color to the toe like mine) to be purchased at Home Made, and a yarn needle. Knitting needles and notions are also sold in our shop!
