Classes: Tink, Drop, Frog and Holiday Stocking

We’re very excited to announce that Michele Bernstein (Pdxknitterati) is returning to Stash on October 6th to teach a couple of classes! Last time she was here, her classes were very popular and all the students had a fantastic time!

This time around she’ll be teaching 2 great information-packed classes. We’ve had many knitters express interest in a class about fixing their mistakes, so the first class of the day will be just that.
