LAST CALL for 2010! This class will exercise the creative side of your brain!

Students must know how to cast-on, knit, purl, increase, decrease and make a simple crocheted chain (basically how to hold the hook/yarn ). Fiber artist, Mary Pat will help you select the right fiber for each type of embellishment. Partial skeins will be available for purchase the night of the class. Patterns for shop model base scarf/shawl are free to students.

General Class Guidelines

Payment is due at time of registration. No spaces can be held without payment. Registration & payment must be made no later than 3 days prior to the start date of class. Teachers are paid by student fees alone, and are not paid an hourly rate by the shop. Refunds are not given later than 3 days prior to the start of the class unless the class is cancelled for lack of participation. When you sign up, be sure that you are able to attend every session. There are no refunds for missed classes, and make-up sessions may not be possible. In an emergency situation, a make-up class may be considered by private arrangement with the teacher and there will be a $10 make-up class fee payable directly to the teacher at the time of the make-up class. Make-up classes cannot be done during a teacher's floor time (if your teacher is also an employee of Uptown Fibers). It is up to the student to contact the teacher for missed class information. In the event that the class is cancelled by Uptown Fibers, refunds will be given in the same form of original payment.

Unless specifically noted, cost of supplies is NOT included with class fees. Also, unless otherwise noted, supplies are to be purchased at Uptown Fibers.

Good class manners: In consideration of others, please do not wear any fragrance to class. All cell phones must be off. Arrive at least 10 minutes early to get settled. Bring all your knitting notions. Do your homework, and come to the shop to brush up on basics a few days BEFORE your class if you are not sure that your skills are fresh or match the class requirements. Thanks for your consideration of these “good class manners” as they will make everyone’s experience much more enjoyable!
