As we begin this new year, we also begin a truly inspired class schedule. Star and all of our teachers really came together to produce a schedule with many returning favorites, as well as some very interesting new classes. Some that are coming up in the next week or so still have slots available, so if you’d like to take any, please give us a call (503-922-1150) or stop in.
Sivia Harding Clinic – Beginner level and up.
We are so fortunate here at Twisted to be surrounded by experts in everything crafty. To that end, we’ve decided to play on one of our Twistedistas’ very strong teaching skills, while at the same time, offering you, our customers, another option for knitterly assistance. It’s the Sivia Harding Clinic! Clinics are drop-in, and cost just $10 an hour. Of course, having said that, you can always pre-register if you’d like, for as little as an hour, or as long as 4. Sivia can help you with pretty much any knitting problem you may have. She’ll get you all straightened out, no worries!
Monday: 1:30pm – 5:30pm
Wednesday: 12:30pm – 4:30pm
Friday: 10:00am – 2:00pm
