Winter/Spring 2018 Classes & Events

January 26, 2018



We’re excited for our next round of classes and social events! Due to popular demand, and an ever-growing wait-list, we’ve added extra knitting project clinics. Life is busy for everyone and sometimes it’s difficult to commit to several weeks of one specific class. Clinics allow each student to work on a project of their choice, with the added benefit of learning from classmates’ projects too. This is our most requested class, so we’ve added extra Monday sessions to this schedule, along with our popular Wednesday crochet clinics.

Registration for our classes opens at the shop on Saturday, January 27 at 10:00 am. You’ll need to come in and register in person with either cash or cheques for each individual Instructor. We don’t accept payment by credit card or debit for our classes, just for the supplies purchased at 88 Stitches with a 10% student discount.

Payment for classes must be received at the time of registration to secure a seat in each class session. Our classes fill up quickly! You may call or email us at the shop for more information about our classes and class fees, and to check prior to coming in to register for space availability. You’ll find a preview of our knitting and crochet clinic dates, and Learn to Knit or Crochet schedule on our website here under Classes.

Our monthly evening socials are back, starting with Thursday, February 15 7-9 pm. Bring your knitting or crochet and join us for tea. Our socials are not classes, and they’re free and fun to attend. Come get to know others in the area who share your passion for yarn.

We’re also hosting two knit-alongs in our 88 Stitches Ravelry Group‘s forum, a Softsweater Knits Trunk Show event in March, and a Firefly Notes Pop-up Shop in April. Plus even more Spring events, to be announced. There’s nothing we enjoy more at 88 Stitches than getting together with our friends of the shop.

You’ll find our fun-filled social calendar here under Events. The best way to keep in touch with what’s happening is to subscribe to receive our occasional email updates.

Happy stitching from all of us at 88 Stitches
