COMMUNITY & classes

We have offered many fiber arts classes, events, & workshop pre-Covid-19, including CROCHETING,  FELTING,  KNITTING,  RUGHOOKING,  SPINNING, LOOPING, TATTING, and WEAVING.  

We have recently added our Outdoor Crafts Circle in the shop’s backyard on Wednesday mornings from 10 – 11.  Just one hour (ish) – no bathroom available.  You must bring your own mask & chair, snacks, water, hat, sunglasses, crafts of your choosing.   We will sit 6 – 10 feet apart.  Rain date if we need it will be Friday, 10 – 11. We now have two tents for shade!

We are considering Outdoor Classes for 3 students (6 feet apart) under a tent in our back yard. Please let us know your thoughts and whether you think this is a good idea.

We are working on adding a Private Appointment Calendar Scheduler to our website. We are opening slowly – 12 half-hour appointments/week on Wed., Fri., & Sat. for now.  Please call 413-397-3680 to schedule your appointment (masks required).  Browsing, advice, and shopping.  No hands-on knitting project help at this time as 6-foot distancing is still in effect.

Take a look at our great new calendar below for classes, workshops, and events! You can navigate to different months, click on each class for more info, and if you click on the “agenda” tab, you’ll see the classes in a list instead.  Our printable class list will be available for you to download soon.  If a class does not have more info listed on the calendar yet, please check back or call 413-397-3680 for more information.

Please call, email, or stop by the shop to register.   Payment is due with registration. Minimum class size is 3.  [50% nonrefundable deposit unless class is cancelled or you find a replacement for your place.]    10% off all materials purchased for class projects.

Knitting for others:  We collect children’s hats and mittens year-round for Greenfield’s Warm the Children.

We encourage donations to Heifer International to buy a fiber animal for an underprivileged family in the world. Drop off some change at the counter or donate quickly and safely online at Sheep & Shawl’s donation page

We look forward to seeing you soon!

    I’ll come in today to sign up for some needle felting classes!


  8. I am interested in taking a tatting class in late winter/ early spring.


  9. I might like to take the tatting class too whenever you do it


  10. I am very interested in a tatting class but I will be out of the area until February. Early spring is best for me.


  11. Hi Angie – no tatting classes are scheduled yet, but I hope we can try one in early Spring! watch our newsletters or the website class calendar. Cheers, Liz


  12. Will Laverne Was be coming again this year?



  13. I’m looking for an “intro to weaving” class. I know nothing, but have been in awe of some of the fiber art I’ve seen people create, and I want to dabble a little to see if this is something I’d like to pursue. Any ideas?
