About Our Classes

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 48 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. 

Supplies are needed for all classes and a supply list will be furnished when you register.  The class fee covers instruction only.  You will receive a 10% discount on all supplies needed for the class.  We would appreciate if you select Knitting Next Door for your supplies.

Due to student and teacher allergies, please refrain from wearing perfumes and scented lotions to class.
