CLASS POLICIES

Class fees are due at the time of reservation. If you cancel by 48 hours of the class, you will receive store credit that can be applied to a future class. If you cancel after that, the class fee is non-refundable. Each class is 2-3 hours in duration unless noted otherwise. Each class (other than the Learn to knit class) must have a minimum of 2 registrants to take place. We will refund your fee if the class is cancelled due to not reaching the required minimum. Class materials must be purchased at PYC. Students receive a 10% discount on project yarn or may have the 10% placed on their reward cards.

Events for

 

July, August & September

 

Spend some time this summer learning something new!

We have some fun offerings below.

 

 


Rainbow Sweater Knit-a-Long

 

 

We will meet on Friday mornings beginning September 1.
The pattern is called "Rainbows in the Gorge" by Sarah Keller.
It is knit with this long tube of 20 colors of fingering weight
yarn by Wonderland Yarns called So Fond of Rainbows.

It comes in three color palettes (see below) and we can order your choice.  

We need your order by August 15 so your yarn will arrive before the Knit-a-Long begins.

 

 

There is no fee for this Knit-a-Long, but we will have a drawing for a gift card at the end of the month.  Toss $5 and your name into the jar each time you come to knit.

 

 

Dates: Friday September 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29

 

Time: 10:30AM
