Purchasing your supplies for these lessons at Needle & Skein is required.

FREE Accessory Knit-Along Wednesdays With Gilah

Gilah is in the shop on Wednesday nights leading an accessory knit-along. Every month, she’ll start a new project and give you tips for success. Come join Gilah for a mid-week mini retreat!

These free sessions are not classes, but a time to be with other knitters in a comfortable environment. With this in mind, we ask that you review the necessary skills for each project prior to attending these fun and free events.

Wednesdays: from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Free when you purchase your supplies from Needle & Skein.

Needle & Skein Classes Policy

Class fees are not refundable unless the instructor cancels the class. If you purchased a class and are unable to attend, you are welcome to sell your seat to someone else. In the event this occurs, the original purchaser must notify us of the change. Should we cancel a class due to inclement weather or instructor illness, we will schedule a make-up session. All class materials must be purchased from Needle & Skein prior to the start of class.
