2018 Classes

We offer classes in knitting, crochet, weaving and rug hooking. Our classes range from a short 2 hour class where you might find locals and tourists side by side learning a new fiber skill. We also offer multi-day retreats and you can enjoy the historic nature of our town, and immerse yourself in all things fiber! We have special occasions where you might find us knitting in Basin Park or at the top of the Crescent Hotel, or hiking one of our many trails about town to enjoy a beautiful vista while we learn a new knitting or crochet technique! We also are glad to arrange private instruction for any fiber craft. 

  • BEGINNING WEAVING CLASSES can be arranged at any time – three consecutive days is needed
  • Know how to weave but need a refresher course? One day REFRESH YOUR WEAVING is $85.
