EMBRACE THE HOOK: LEARN TO CROCHET with Stephanie
SUNDAYS, 10 am – 12 noon |
July 9 & 16

Be the boss of your loops! If you’ve been intimidated by crochet patterns, now is the time to embrace the hook and expand your repertoire of skills. From trendy and embellished crocheted hats to feminine edgings on knits, crochet is both fun and liberating. We’ll learn basic stitches and get started on one or more simple projects.

Level: Beginner. Cost: $60 per class; plus supplies.


LEARN TO KNIT: NEXT STEPS with Shellye
WEDNESDAYS, 7 – 9 pm |
July 12 : Taking the Mystery out of DPNs
August 9: Learn to Read Your Knitting

Expand your knitting skills this summer with two Next Steps classes! In Taking the Mystery out of DPNs, you’ll learn the classic method of knitting in the round. Double-pointed needles can seem intimidating — they’re short and pointy and there are so many of them! You’ll learn how to transfer live stitches from a circular needle onto double-points, just like decreasing at the top of a hat. We’ll also cast-on to double-points to begin a baby sock and discuss when to use four or five needles.

Learn to Read Your Knitting: If you’ve mastered the knitting basics, this class will help you move on to a complex project. Working together on a lace scarf pattern, we’ll focus on deciphering pattern abbreviations and instructions, creating stitches with yarn overs (yos), and selecting the right yarn, needles and knitting tools for the project.

Level: Beginner. Cost: $25 per class; plus supplies.

Ongoing

We do our best to help you any time you come with project challenges–if you need more focused attention, or want to be sure someone will be available to help, the Drop-in sessions are for you! We’ve recently added more sessions, and limited participants to 4 people to be sure you get the attention you need.

Drop-in Knitting & Crochet Help
Every Wednesday 3 – 4 p.m.; 1st & 3rd Sundays, 1 -2 p.m.

Hit a rough patch in your pattern? Made a frustrating mistake? Our expert advice will get you back on track. $10 payable to Uncommon Threads.

Private Lessons
Time slots available:
Wednesday, 10 a.m.– 3 p.m.; 5 - 7 p.m.
1st and 3rd Sunday, 2 – 4 p.m.

When you need to learn or refresh a technique, demystify a complicated pattern or revive a “vintage” project, private lessons are the best choice. Sign up for one-on-one sessions with Sara, half-hour minimum. $15 half-hour, register in advance.

We’re making the switch to lighter-weight yarns and fibers as the weather gets warm! Our classes offer great inspiration as well as technical support and encouragement for your more challenging works in progress.

Registration for classes requires full payment. Please call the shop (650-941-1815) or come in person to register. Class size is limited. Sorry, no refunds on class fees; no make-ups are available for missed classes.
