Sweater Workshop @ Loopy Yarns

Every Monday 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m at Loopy Yarns.

This great yarn shop has all of the luxury of a knitting boutique with the friendliness of the "Cheers" bar. Their weekly Monday Workshop is perfect for sweater knitters to gather, to get the help & guidance and the support you need through your project. Just come to work on your sweater or feel free to bring any questions or slip ups that you just can't quite figure out.
