Class Policies:  Classes meet in the Dartmouth Yarns shop at 122 Portland St., Dartmouth. Class enrollment is limited to give each student plenty of attention.  If your desired class is filled, we will be happy to add you to a waiting list.

Payment of all class fees is required to hold your seat in a class.  You may receive a full refund for any class registration cancelled prior to 72 hours before the first class meeting. We are sorry, but class fees are non-refundable within 72 hours of the first class meeting. In the unfortunate event that a class is cancelled by us due to low enrollment, all class fees will be refunded, with our sincere apologies. If unforeseen weather or illness requires that a single class meeting be rescheduled, students will be notified promptly and the class rescheduled.

Please make sure you read each class description fully to see skill level and material requirements. Some classes may include the cost of key materials. You will need pencil and paper, a blunt-tipped darning needle, and scissors for all classes. All materials are, of course, available for purchase in the shop & students receive a 10% discount on items purchased for class. Please feel free to call us at 422-YARN or, better yet, stop in to talk about any of the classes.

Private and semi-private knitting lessons are available by appointment. Time is priced by the hour ($40), but you can opt to schedule your time in increments of 30 minutes to help you with particular techniques or with tricky bits of a knitting project. The personalized attention available during private lessons can help you learn more and progress faster than in regularly scheduled group classes.  Bring a friend to learn with you and split the cost (semi-private).  Call the shop to discuss topics and schedule. Group lessons can also be scheduled, on demand, for groups of 4-6 students of any age.  (Please note, we do our best to accommodate all requests, but we are limited by the availability of instructors.)
