The June schedule is set at Sheep Skate! I'll be teaching Cables and Backstrap Loom weaving- and Eileen offers lots of other great classes too. Call or email her to sign up for classes- info at the link above or on the "Classes" tab here on my site.

I'm also offering private knitting lessons- anything from first time knitters to advanced techniques, project help, and pattern reading. I can offer lessons at Sheep Skate in Dedham, or in Cambridge. Email me at for info or to set something up.

I'll post better photos of the woven belt as soon as I can, my camera is broken so I had to take this on my phone.

  • Cables with Jen- will explore different cable techniques each week.  $80.00 plus supplies for 4 classes
Cables add beautiful texture and visual complexity to your knitting.  Learn the technique and explore some of its variations while making wearable scarf. Begin with simple cables and work your way up- by the end of the class you'll be able to take on any Aran or cable project!

  • Back Strap Weaving � No special tools needed.  4 hour class, including supplies $50.00 
The Sky is the limit with Back Strap Loom. The basic weaving skills can be applied to any kind of loom, and you can make just about anything with a back strap loom. In the class, you'll make a belt using 9 different patterns, and learn the basics of weaving in the same way Peruvian children have learned for hundreds of years. In addition, weaving on a backstrap loom doesn't require any special equipment!

I'm adding a better photo of the belt motifs! You'll learn all of these and be able to design your own!
