Upcoming Classes and Events

Whether you are new to the craft or just rusty after many years hiatus, these one-on-one sessions held at the shop are designed for beginners to get the most efficient use of their time. We have two teachers available to get you started on the basics and a first project. Purchasing your supplies for these lessons at Linden Yarn & Textiles, Inc. is required.

Beginning Knitting

Gilah has experience teaching not only knitting, but has also given voice lessons. She loves learning new skills and sharing them with others. Call Gilah at (612) 269-0763 to set up a private lesson @ $30 per hour.

These make along projects have been selected by our guest hosts. Get your supplies and pattern at Linden Yarn & Textiles, and you can join our host to make some new friends & projects along the way. These are not classes, but two hour making sessions. Staff will be on hand to help with minor issues should they arise and as time allows. Hosts and projects will be changing monthly. We are still ironing out the details of the programming, but maybe you should start considering a project you would like to host using yarn or roving from Linden Yarn & Textiles. We are very excited about this new programming and hope you will be too!

Saturday Afternoons in March 1:30 – 3:30 pm – Join our guest host Joan S. for the Ramble Shawl MAL. Come early to Linden to get your supplies. This one is proving to be quite popular!

Kathleen is in the shop from 5-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday nights leading an accessory knit-along. Every month, she’ll start a new project and give you tips for success. Come join Kathleen for a mid-week mini retreat!


April – Dinar slippers in your choice of DK.


March – Stone Point poncho in the new Luma by The Fibre Company.

We are very excited to be offering Custom Fit patterns. Whether you are new to sweater knitting or have been knitting for years, you should try this program. In your one hour pre arranged session, Chris will take your body measurements and assist you in creating a custom fit pattern based on your pre-approved swatch. We will keep your measurements on file and give you a copy to take home. You need to have purchased your yarn for your sweater from Linden Yarn & Textiles.

Call the shop at 952-303-3895 or stop by to register and get more information regarding the programming. Your sweater is going to be fantastic!
