These are three hour classes that get you started in your choice of traditional rug Hooking, Oxford rug punching, miniature ultra punching, wool tree twisting, wool appliqué or designing your own pattern. You will enjoy our spacious classroom and lots of help. All classes are offered on Saturday afternoon. You will have three hours of instruction and can come back any Saturday afternoon for more help for only $25 a session plus materials. If you have your own supplies bring them and only pay $25! Need stuff? We have STUFF! Is there 5-6 of you that want to take a class, but all have different interests? That’s fine.
We offer all the classes every Saturday afternoon from 1-4. Pick your class, then just let us know if you need supplies the day of class
Please come in 30 minutes before class to pick out and pay for your supplies.
While you may pick up and pay for your supplies the day of the class you must pre pay for the class to hold your spot. This is due to limited class sizes.
