An update on our classes


We have had lots going on at Harmony, and our classes so far have been fabulous. Our very first class was taught by Jane Wise on cooking with peaches. Last Saturday  Jane taught a class on baking bread – you should have been there! The whole shop smelled so delicious!

A group of students have completed  the beginning knitting class taught by Sarah Davis and have had a great deal of success.

Janell finished knitting a pair of hand warmers and she is now working on knitting a beautiful cosy hat in time for the cold weather.

Another successful group of students have completed our beginning crochet class taught by Allison Baker. Here they are just starting out on their projects;

And, here is Megan’s beautiful chevron scarf. She is just working on the final touches.

A big thank you to Janell and Megan for sharing their projects.

So, what’s coming up next?

  • Allison is planning on teaching another Intro to Crochet Class in November. The dates will be November 1, 8 & 15 from 10am – 12pm. The cost for the class is $60. This is a great opportunity to learn a new skill at the same time as making a gift for yourself or someone you love. What could be nicer than to receive a beautiful handmade gift such as this scarf for Christmas?
  • Sarah will be teaching another Beginning Knitting class too. This will be held on Tuesday evenings, Nov. 20, 27, and Dec. 4 from 7-8:30. The cost of this class is just $45, and you’ll be making something beautiful and very practical for the coming months of cold weather.
  • The dates for our basket weaving class: Kentucky Berry Basket have changed. The class will now be held on November 6, 13 & 20 from 9.15 – 10.45. The basket weaving class is $63. Again this could be another gift to tick off your Christmas list.
  • Our Children’s sewing class will begin in November. We will also be adding an adult sewing class on Thursday evenings. More details will be available soon.
  • We are very excited to be adding new classes all the time. We are going to start offering knitting workshops for those who already know the basics and would like some help in trying something new. Our first two workshops will be “Knitting Entrelac” taught by Alison Stokes on Tuesday Nov. 20 from 7-8.30 and “Getting started with socks” taught by Tracy Willburn on Thursday Dec. 6 from 7-8:30. The workshops will be offered at an introductory price of $10 per class.

  2. I think an apron making class–with some of the older classic designs that aren’t much available anymore–would be great. I know that cute ruffly aprons, which might look nice on a very petite newlywed, are popular, but I’d like to be able to sew the kind of grandma aprons (no ties around my neck!) that crossed in various clever ways behind the back–with ties and/or buttons. There were many models, such as the style that came over one’s shoulders and hung somewhat like a soft cloth sandwich board sign that could be fitted, if only a bit, by using the four tabs (one on each open side, front and back, of the “sandwich boards”) with a row of two or three buttonholes on the back tabs and corresponding rows of buttons on the front tabs. That’s not necessarily my favorite design, but the easiest to describe here.

    You could perhaps offer an intro to apron making class with one cute contemporary style and one simple older style.

  3. What is on the schedule for cooking classes in February and March?
