COMMUNITY & classes

Now that the physical store has closed, Liz will be posting community events and her own classes from time to time.

KNITTING CLASSES:  One-time Registration is this Saturday September 11 from 9:00 – 10:30 a.m. at Hill Institute, 83 Pine St, Florence, MA –  for Liz’s 10-week knitting classes ( two sessions starting : Tue Sept 28, 5:00 – 7:00 and Wed Sept 29, 10:00 – 12noon, each $80).  These are “bring your own project” classes for all skill levels, including learn to knit, get help finding a new project, and get assistance as needed on a project you’re already working on.

Registration must be made in person at Hill Institute, 83 Pine St, Florence, MA.  If a person is unable to attend registration, he/she may send someone on his or her behalf.  A person may also register after the registration date as long as there is space in the class and the person registers before the second class has been held. [Email me at if you want to see if any openings are available after registration.] This fall, registration will be conducted outside (bring a folding chair if you like). Course fees are to be paid upon registration.  Payment must be in the form of cash or check only.

I am vaccinated, and we will all wear masks during classes, be seated at tables with adequate spacing, and I’ll open windows during good weather.

  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.

  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?
