New Building Blocks Series

We are excited to announce that Michelle Hunter has scheduled a new Building Blocks series beginning Tuesday, April 4, 2017, and continuing the first Tuesday of every month for 12 additional months. We have two sessions available: afternoon 2:00pm – 4:00pm OR evening 6:00pm – 8:00pm. Space is limited for this series and will be filled on a first-come first-served basis. Listed below are the dates for the entire series.

Building Blocks is a skill-building series; the only prerequisite is that students MUST BE proficient in the knit, purl, and cast on stitches. Over the 13 month class, students build skills and confidence as they become experienced knitters. Participants learn new stitches, tips, and techniques, and leave the Building Blocks series with a treasure chest of knitting knowledge. The series progresses through major knitting concepts while creating one knitted square at a time, and in the final class, students learn how to arrange and sew together the 12 beautiful blocks to create a wonderful afghan.

The course registration fee is $250.00, and includes the book, Building Blocks (a $20 value), which is distributed at the first class in April. This course is an incredible value as it equates to less than $18 per class. The course fee is due IN FULL at the time of registration. Payments may be made with check, cash, or credit card by calling (614) 734-0618 or stopping in the shop during business hours. If paying for the course in full creates difficulty, please contact the shop owner, Karen Wilkins. She is happy to work with potential students to make this wonderful course possible for all.

Because of tremendous interest, we ask that you register AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. To ensure delivery in time for class, you MUST purchase your yarn no later than March 1, 2017. As usual, we ask for a 50% deposit on all special orders. As with ALL our classes, it is our policy that you MUST purchase your yarn at Knitting Temptations. A complete list of course supplies is included below.

Seats are limited so please consider your commitment before registering. We understand that at times unforeseen events occur in life that may necessitate you to drop the course after registering. If you withdraw from the course up until March 1, you will receive a 50% course refund. However, if you withdraw after March 1, no refund will be issued.

Knitting Temptations is thrilled to offer Building Blocks with Michelle. As many of you know, she is reaching new audiences far and wide with the Knit Purl Hunter Knit-Along series sponsored by Skacel, her book and magazine  publications, as well as workshops and appearances around the country. We are honored by her commitment to Knitting Temptations.

Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing from you!
