We respectfully request that class yarns be purchased at Linden Yarn & Textiles.

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.

Gilah 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 Gilah for a mid-week mini retreat!

July is all about Creating Spaces. Accentuate the positive by adding negative space in the form of extra large eyelets or buttonholes with the Open Waters Shawl or Open Waters Cowl by Melanie BergSchwarm by Hanna Maciejewska, or the ever popular Holey Scarf. Begins Wednesday, July 5, 5:00 to 7:30 p.m.  – Free when you purchase your supplies from Linden Yarn & Textiles.

June – Fade into June with us by choosing any of Andrea Mowry Designs’ Faded patterns. So much color and so much fun! This seems to be a potato chip of projects; nobody can stop at one!

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!
