If you’ve always wanted to make a pair of mittens & were too intimidated by that fiddly thumbhole, NOW IS YOUR CHANCE! It’s even titled WORLD’S SIMPLEST MITTENS, and can be knitted for a child to a very large adult man’s hands! This class is taught by Yarnista & Owner Susan Dickerson and will be held multiple times in June to support The Flying Needles Handmade for the Homeless Project. Last year, The Flying Needles' customers & donors contributed more than 300 handmade hats, scarves, mitts, sweaters & blankets to House of Mercy, which they then handed out as gifts in December. One session of this class will be ½ off the regular class fee to encourage people to knit mittens for this worthy cause!
- 3 to 5 pm Mondays June 4 & 18
- 1 to 3 pm Tuesdays, June 12 & 19 – ½ OFF This session is HALF OFF our regular pricing to support of Homemade for the Homeless Project. Beginning June 9, we are collecting items for the homeless in preparation for the fall. Everyone who contributes a handmade item will be entered into a GRAND PRIZE GIVEAWAY. All donations must be turned in by Aug. 15.
