Learn to Knit!

$20

with Anna Shallman

Calendar Jun 27, 2019 at 6 pm

Thursday, June 27, 2019
6:00 PM- 8:00 PM

Tuition: $20

If you have never knit before or it has been many, many years since you have picked up your needles, this class is for you. We will start with the basics and learn the knit stitch. When you're ready, we will teach you how to purl. You choose your pace. There is no cost for materials.

If you don't like it you can walk away and never do it again. If you love it, you can begin a project and begin to purchase supplies. An additional session is offered August 8 and help is always available when Anna is at Sisu Designs Yarn Shop on Chapman Street.

About the instructor, Anna Shallman: "I moved to Ely in November of 1995 specifically to live upstairs of Sisu Designs Yarn Shop and learn to weave and learn more about knitting. I spent five years knitting and weaving every day. When I moved out, I continued to help the previous owner until I purchased the business five years ago.

If you would have told me when I moved here that I was going to stay and own the shop I would not have believed you. I thought I would move on after a few years but there is something about Ely and this little yarn shop that I love, so I am still here.

I've been teaching beginners for about 20 years and it is one of my very favorite things to do."
