Learn twelve different kinds of cables in this monthly cable workshop! Each month you'll learn a new cable stitch and/or pattern and make a square. If you stick with us and take every class (or even just most of them) you'll have an afghan done by the end of the year!

You don't have to take every session, but they do start with the easiest stitches and get a little more complicated as the year goes on. If you buy 3 or 6 sessions at a time you get them for a lower price! Select session bundles are in the drop down menu above. Session bundle discounts are only applicable to the bundle options listed (discount is not available if you buy three sessions that are not already bundled).

3 sessions: $60 $50

6 sessions: $120 $90

NOTE: All sessions have homework to be completed before the class starts! See below for instructions.
