About Our Classes

Most classes are suspended indefinitely due to Covid-19.  We are working to add some online options.  Scroll down to check availability.

To sign up for a class, please pre-register to reserve your space.  Payment must be received at time of registration.  Classes have a minimum of 2 students and refunds are available up to 72 hours before the first class session.  In fairness to the teachers and other students who have purchased their supplies, we are unable to make refunds after that time.  Two exceptions to that rule are Beginning Knitting and Beginning Crochet - If you are signed up for those we will teach the class with a single student if necessary.  Our curriculum is written for adults and children over the age of 12.

Supplies are needed for most classes and a supply list is listed on each class page or will be furnished when you register in person or within 48 hours if you register online..  The class fee covers instruction only.  We would appreciate if you select Knitting Next Door for your supplies.

If this is a Zoom class, you will receive the link and documentation no earlier than 72 hours before class starts.

Due to student and teacher allergies, please refrain from wearing perfumes and scented lotions to classes held in the store.
