Westport Yarns

We've been working hard to put together a great selection of classes and also plans for an exciting Grand Opening celebration.

The class schedule for the spring is available online at, click here for details

The details for the store's official Grand Opening are listed on the Knitting Central website.  I was extremely excited to learn that Shirley Paden, internationally recognized knitwear designer and teacher will be the guest speaker.  She will also be doing a book signing for her long awaited book:  Knitwear Design Workshop: A Comprehensive Guide to handknits. 

I took a class in design with Shirley two years ago and it led me to designing a sweater that was featured in the Vogue Knitting Magazine Holiday 2009 issue.  

Shirley is a remarkable teacher and designer and I am incredibly grateful for everything I learned from her.  It is a real treat to have her come and give a presentation.
