LIVE Class Registration Is Now Open!!!

I’m incredibly excited to announce that our first round of LIVE classes is opening up registration TODAY!

Our Virtual Focus Group gave us a ton of feedback about the types of classes you would like to see. Almost 100 different topics were suggested for classes and we’ve whittled those down to a few top choices.

Over the weekend they voted for their favorite classes and here’s what they came up with:

The Ultimate Guide to Knitting Cast Ons (Part 1)

The Ultimate Guide to Knitting Bind Offs (Part 1)

How to Knit Entrelac for Beginners

How to Knit Fair Isle Colorwork for Beginners

How to Crochet for Beginners (Part 1)

How to Read Crochet Charts for Beginners

How to Seam Crochet Granny Squares (coming soon)

How to Crochet Amigurumi Toys for Beginners (coming soon)

You can click on any of the above links to find our more about each class and register for your favorites.

If you would like to get a FREE class called “Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Yarn, But Were Afraid to Ask” you can sign up for our Virtual Focus Group. All we ask is for your feedback from time to time. You’ll also get to help vote for future classes, participate in brain storming sessions, and even test out top secret features we plan on adding to the site. Click Here to Join!

Subscriber of the Week

This week’s subscriber of the week is Dorothy from Australia.

Dorothy made a cardigan for her granddaughter using 4 of our tutorials, the whelk stitch, the wrap and turn short row, the I-cord bind off, 3 needle bind off

I am really amazed how Dorothy used all of these different techniques to create this one of a kind cardigan for her granddaughter and new she needed to be the subscriber of the week.

Please congratulate Dorothy in the comments!
