Upcoming Classes

Equinox Sweater: this is a two-session class: January 12th and 26th, 10am-12pm
Fee: $30 includes pattern Instructor: Doris Prokop Limit: 8 participants

The Equinox Sweater is a favorite pattern from Interweave Knits' Knitscene. The entire sweater is knit from the top-down, there is no purling and no seaming. It is the perfect beginner's sweater! Of course, all levels of knitters are welcome, but this is a great project for those ready to move on from scarves and hats. :)

As per instructions from Doris, the best yarn to purchase is that of 50% or higher of animal fiber (wool, alpaca, etc.). This helps with blocking and counteracting the rolling of hems. We at Warm Hearts Yarn are happy to help you find a great yarn for this sweater! All yarn purchased specifically for this class will receive a 10% discount.

While the class meets three times, Heidi will be available during store hours to help with any questions or problems that arise.

Fee: $25 includes all supplies (Please note: This is a three-week class; the $25 fee covers all supplies and three weeks of instruction) Instructor: Katie Brousseau

During this class participants will learn basic knitting skills (cast on, knit stitch, bind off and seaming) while making a knitted ball/beanbag. While all elementary-aged children are welcome, it has been my experience that the fine motor coordination involved may be difficult and frustrating for children under the age of eight. Exceptions can always be made, and we strive for classes to be enjoyable experiences for all children. Limit: 8 participants

Below you will find a list of our current adult classes. Classes may also be found on our store calendar on the website's Calendar Page. Thank you for your interest, and please feel free to email Katie at with any questions.
