December Classes
We try yo keep many of the December classes to easy, make and take projects as we know many of you are still working on gifts!
Intro to Weaving
With Peggy
Today at 11:00 am
There is still room and looms to rent...
In this fantastic Intro class you learn everything you need to know to weave simple projects - like mug rugs, table mats, and scarves. Weaving is a fast and fun way to make last minute gifts. You will make a set of 3 or 4 coasters in this class - the perfect hostess gift!
Weave Inkle Tote Bag Straps
With Peggy
Tonight at 5:00 pm
There is still room in this class!
Inkle weaving is a form of warp faced weaving that makes really strong material - absolutely perfect for the straps of a bag, a belt, or guitar straps, etc.
You do not need a special loom for Inkle Weaving! Use your rigid heddle loom!
Intro to Knitting
With Sue
Thursday 11:00
This class is for the absolute beginner. You will learn to Cast on and the knit stitch in class as well as how to read a basic pattern.
Come back a week later and learn the purl stitch and how to seam your gauntlets. The pattern is included in the class fee.
Intro to Knitting for the Adventurous Beginner
With Sue
Thursday at 12:00
Think of this class as more of a refresher. Have you learned to knit before but it has been a while?
You will relearn how to cast on, how to work a knit stitch and purl stitch and identify each while working on a welted cowl. Come back when you are done and we will teach you how to bind off!
Snatching Beauty from the Jaws of Weaving Disaster
With Peggy
Friday Dec 14th
OR Wednesday Dec 19th
Most of us, when learning a new skill, have a few pieces that just don't quite turn out the way we want. With weaving it can be bad edges, or inconsistent beating (tension), or warping gone wrong. Peggy is going to show you how to create beautiful pieces out of the things we are tempted to throw away! If you do not have any of these to bring -- Peggy will provide some of hers!
Felted Soaps
a Make and Take Class
With Denise Brown
Saturday, Dec 22nd
Felted soaps are a blast to make - they can be very simple or you can use extra wool to create designs.
Felted soaps are a washcloth and soap all in one - acts like a loofah, has antibacterial properties, and makes soap last longer.
Denise will provide the wool and soaps. Students will need to bring a good size bowl. HOKC has felting pads you can use. You will need to purchase felting needles which we have in stock.
Beginning Crochet

Saturday Dec 15th
In this Intro class you will learn to chain, single and double crochet while making a washcloth! You need a light color, worsted weight cotton yarn and H hook. You can pick the supplies up in store.
Beginning Crochet
With Vicki
Monday Dec 17th
Vicki will walk you through all of the basics of crocheting flat. Learn to chain, work into the chain while learning to work a single and double crochet stitch. You need worsted weight yarn and a size H hook.
The 2019 Passport

2019 Year Long Mystery Knit a Long
"My Piece of the Pie"
Have you had fun with the Makahiki?
We teamed up Lazor Sheep and Sharon Mooney again for 2019!
This shawl is a show stopper!
It will have twelve tonal colors that blend beautifully from one to the next. There is one color of beads throughout.
And, there are no wrap and turns!
The shawl is designed to sit perfectly on your shoulders for a beautiful and highly wearable result.
This is a year long KAL. You get one skein of yarn per month and a clue each month.
We are still working on loading the kits into the system but this link should be up and running by the end of the day:
