Do you want to make the most of your knitting/crocheting time and yarn purchase?
Here is the class for you:


Have you ever made a sweater you can wear now as a dress because it grew so much?
Does your shawl not have the drape you hoped it would have? Did you by yarn you don't know what to do with it?

In this class you will learn
