Our teachers are off for their well deserved summer break. Watch this space for our upcoming fall classes. Have a wonderful summer full of fun and fibre! Our purple couches are not on summer break though, so come on down, knit, crochet, and visit us. We’d love to see you!
We want to be fresh with our classes
At the Loop, we turn to our teachers for new ideas, so expect to see all kinds of varied learning opportunities along with our regular classes. Look for classes that go beyond the craft of knitting and crochet. You may find a spectacular iPad workshop, or maybe a few hours on how to properly feature your finished objects using photography. But if it’s knitting or crochet you want, we have lots and lots of classes available!
Register for Classes
If you've found a class that you're interested in, just give us a call during business hours at (403) 457-3020 to register!
