Threads & More also has a store where you can purchase various materials and other clothing as well, so check it out. You can purchase take-home kits to work at home, and receive advice on the correct way to perform knitting techniques. Based in Sherwood, you can also bring a friend, and courses can be booked online via the website.
For a more detailed course on knitting, try Tangled Yarns classes and workshops.

Classes are affordably priced at $25, and there are specialty workshops should you become interested in learning further about a specific technique. Once lessons are paid for, you will be notified to confirm your attendance via text or email the day before for your peace of mind.

Ruby's Threads Plus is another place to learn new knitting techniques, or even get expert help on an existing project or material that you have been working on yourself. The benefit of a class from Ruby's Threads Plus is that you can choose your own project (what you would like to work on), whether big or small, and still pay the normal class fee. You can even learn advanced skills such as creative embroidery, canvaswork, tapestry, goldwork and much more. Knitting kits are also available upon request. To reserve your place, call 3807 7867.
