MACHINE KNITTING INSTRUCTION
Do you have a knitting machine still in the box or gathering dust? Let us help you get started! We can help assemble your machine, get started with the basics, or work through projects to add to your arsenal of skills. And if you don't have a machine, but want to investigate the art of machine knitting, we have plenty of machines you can learn on.
We offer custom one-to-one instruction as well as classes for groups and teach all ages 6 and up. Learning to machine knit is a great way to productively spend vacation from school for kids who love to create! We have two class locations: in beautiful Denver as well as Fort Collins, Colorado.
Prices vary depending on your needs, but we generally charge $20/hr for one-to-one instruction.
