The year is winding down, which means there isn’t a whole lot of time left to finish up all of your holiday presents. There are five group and finishing school classes left on my schedule to help you get stuff done, so get up on it!

There is only one spot left in Katie Canavan’s Advanced Embroidery class on Monday, December 12th from 7-9pm!

And don’t forget to RSVP to The Sweatshop of Love Holiday Party on Friday, December 9th at 7pm at Green Eye Lounge. Bring your needles, a project to work on, and yarn to swap!

As always, email me at allyson [at] thesweatshopoflove [dot] com with questions or to sign up.


**ONE SPOT LEFT!** Advanced Embroidery with Katie Canavan – Fill ‘er Up!: In this sequel to the Beginner Embroidery Class, you’ll learn all the techniques you need to fill in large areas with embroidery, and walk away with a bubbly sampler. You should be comfortable with straight stitches and french knots. Monday December 12th from 7-9pm. $25, additional $6 for materials

Group Knitting and Crochet: Come get help starting a project, finishing a project, picking a project, picking materials, or learning something new! These classes are here for you to make up class time with, including missed Holiday Present Prep classes and any project classes you can’t make. 2 hours, $15

**3 SPOTS LEFT!** Tuesday December 6, 7-9pm

**3 SPOTS LEFT!** Thursday December 8, 7-9pm

Finishing School: Need help getting those presents finished? Of course you do! No matter how early we get started we are always scrambling in December. Use these classes to seam, zipper, stuff, button, duplicate stitch, or embroider your hand knit and crocheted presents to make sure they are done in time for your holiday parties. (Good for knitting time, too!) 2 hours, only $5 or FREE if you are in Holiday Present Prep!

Wednesday December 14, 7-9pm

**3 SPOTS LEFT!** Thursday December 15, 7-9pm

One on One Classes: Is there something you are interested in knitting that you don’t see listed here? Pick a project or a new skill and email me to set up a one on one class! I generally schedule classes weekday nights 7-9pm and weekend days in two hour blocks between 10am-4pm. Send me a few dates and times that work for you. I will match our schedules, pick a time that works for both of us, and give you a class outline. One on one classes are $20 per hour; most classes are two hours long.
