I’ve been getting quite a few questions about my fall knitting classes, so here we go. All of these classes are offered at the Vernon Community Arts Centre, located in beautiful Polson Park. Word to the wise, classes there fill quickly, so if you wanna hang out and learn to knit, sign up sooner than later. All of the materials lists are on their website and I’ve added links so that you can register if you see one you like!
Hope you see you at the Arts Centre this fall. With love from the Maker’s House,
