Below  is information on The Knit Happy Club. 

Session 1 is the same set of lessons that we ran the last time.  Session 1 will run for 9 months.

Session 2 is a completely new set of techniques, recipes, and projects.  Session 2 will run for 6 months.
You may sign up for a Session 2 club even if you did not participate in a past Session 1 club.   

I know some of the dates are close or on special days but it is near impossible to find Wednesdays, Thursdays or Saturdays that do not fall close to some other occasion.  We will go by consensus in the individual sessions and re-schedule where necessary. 

The option for pay-as-you-go has been added.  However, if we do not receive a minimum of three paid-in-full memberships for a session, the session will not be cancelled.   

Deadline for signing up for the sessions, is close of business on September 1st.  Shortly after September 1st, another e-mail will be sent announcing the active sessions. 

To register, just stop into the shop or call 765-569-2953.  Payment by check, cash or credit card is required at time of registration.
