The knowledgeable instructors at My Craft Room help students learn new skills and create lovely gifts in seasonal classes, with knitting, beading, and greeting-card options. In knitting classes ($9/lesson), stitched together by expert yarn wranglers Janet and Sue, pupils purl scarves, shawls, and blankets for pet rocks. Brightly-colored Halloween-themed papers create eye-catching cards in the Happy Halloween class ($25), and multicolored beads grasp metal wires in one of beading instructor Beth’s jewelry-making lessons ($15).
Classes take place multiple times a week and change monthly. All purchases made the day of a class receive a 10% discount, and students proudly display their favorite handiwork online, claiming ownership to prevent devious grandmas from taking all the credit.
