We're Classier Than You Thought

The kids have been back to school for a month now, and their minds are picking up speed after their cranium-softening vacation. But how about you? If you're still suffering from a bit of summer brain rot, don't take a pill -- take a class! That's right, it's not too late to sign up for fall classes at The Purl District.

Bunny Gail has skills to spare and share, whether she's teaching you the basic knit stitch or helping you figure out why all your decreases won't slant the same way. Come to her class, Beginning Knitting and Beyond; it restarts every month on the first three Tuesday evenings, 6-8 p.m.

Now, if you're ready to amaze your friends and confound your enemies, it's time to learn how to knit in the round at Jane's Socks! class. Can't you just hear Aunt Tilly, who always told your mother you were a klutz, say, "However do you knit with four needles? I could never do that!" You don't need to tell her it's a CINCH -- and we won't say a word.

Jane will also help you get a jump on those Christmas presents with our Felted Clogs class. After three Monday evenings, you'll be cranking those puppies out for every member of your family -- Aunt Tilly excluded.

Perhaps you suspect crochet may be your "thang." Our fearless leader, Celia, can teach you how in three sessions custom fitted to your schedule. Once you've got the basics under your crocheted belt, Celia has a couple of other classes for you to try: Crocheted Flower class, where you can grow your own garden with just yarn and a hook, and Crocheted Felted Bucket Bag class, not guaranteed to hold water, but absolutely guaranteed to hold your interest.

Did we mention that there's a 10% materials discount on whatever you buy for any class? No? Well, we'll mention it now. All classes start this week, so join us and save your brain!
