How not to unravel
Conveniently located south of the pedestrian bridge across Crowchild Trail from the Dalhousie LRT station, this retailer has ample free parking outside the store front. Instructional classes for both beginners and advanced knitters are offered. These classes run with six participants for the beginner course and eight for the advanced. Lasting two hours in duration sessions, classes can be taken either in the morning or evening. Other specialty programs need four people to run. All students receive a 10 per cent discount on class supplies and yarn.
Notions and extras
For those requiring extra support when knitting, this retailer sells Ergo gloves. Also available is Fleece Artist jewelry and a wide variety of books covering the craft of knitting, crocheting, felting and beading. Patterns that support the yarns are available as well.
