Classes at Old Town Yarnery


Old Town Yarnery is happy to offer classes for all skill levels, with special classes for children. Class size is limited to 6 students. Our beginner courses are not project based; we feel that it is more important that you get the motions down than worry about completing a project. Once you’ve learned the basics the more advanced classes feature a project component.
