Fall Class Schedule

For those of you in the Ball State area, here is a list of my fall classes.

Registration: Unfortunately, there is a limit to how many students I can take in each class. This enables me to give each student the attention needed to succeed. Registering for class holds your place in class. Upon arrival for class, registered students will be given priority. If the class fills up, the extra students may wait to see if any registered students do not show up. Ten minutes after class begins, if registered students do not show up and have not already spoken with me in advance about being late, the spot will be given to non-registered students on a first come, first serve basis. Email me to register.

Supplies: If you are a beginner and feel intimidated about buying needles, hooks, or other tools, you may purchase a Beginner Kit from me. I make no money from this. I offer it as a service to help you get started. When you email to register, just mention to me if you would like a Kit, and I will have it ready for you at the first class.

Beginner Knitting Needles $3
Crochet Hook $2.50
Beginner Kit $7 ~ includes Beginner Knitting Needles or crochet hook, stitch markers, row counter, tape measure, tapestry needle.
