New Classes at String Yarns

Around here, June marks the end of the school year, but at String, we’re just getting started!

Over the past few months, we’ve been working diligently to revamp our education program because we truly believe knowledge is power, especially when it comes to knitting and crocheting. Education gives you an opportunity to become better at what you love. You’ll be able to expand your range of pattern choices, minimize your frustrations and increase your fun.

Although I’m a published designer, I’m also a bit of a knitting class junkie and curious by nature. Not only do I love to take classes to discover new ways of doing things I already know how to do and add new skills and techniques to my repertoire, but also because I love the camaraderie among my fellow knitters during class time. It gives me an opportunity to socialize with my favorite kind of people – knitters and crocheters. 

The summer/early fall schedule is here where you’ll find out a little more about the details of the class and sign up online. We’ll be adding new classes all the time, so check back often.

 Here’s a preview of our upcoming classes:

  • Directed Knitting

And back to my knitting curiosity…as the Education Coordinator at String, I’d love to hear from you and find out what kinds of classes you’d like to take.  We’ve come up with a survey for you to take here to let us know.

(As a thank you for completing the survey you’ll receive a 10% OFF coupon for you to use on your next String purchase online or in-store.)   

And I’d love to hear from you, too. You can write to me at jforgione@stringyarns.com with any questions or special requests. I can’t promise that I know the answer or even be able to arrange for a specific class, but I can promise that I’ll try. Hope to see you in one (or many) of our new classes.

Jane Warshaw:

Everyone here is so helpful. I’m still a novice knitter and I’ve needed help a lot. They’ve always been instructive and patient and encouraging.
Other Knit shops in the neighborhood don’t compare. Besides being generous with their time they’re also not always trying to sell me something. I’m lucky to have them in my neighborhood.
