One of the most amazing things about knitting is that you can always learn more. Beth has put together these powerhouse skill building workshops so that you can learn the basics of the "how to" and also to share amazing tips and tricks from her experiences, readings, and knitting passion. Pick one, pick two and if you pick three you get a great deal! You decide! We just want you to learn and enjoy. Each class is $25.00 or take all three at $60.00.
