October is a very busy month at SPARKLE Studio! We have a full off-site weekend teaching schedule, which means the studio will be closed on some dates. Please check the bottom of this page or our Facebook page to check for any changes to our regular opening hours.

Keep on reading for the rest of our October news!

New: Individual or Group Classes on Demand

We realize most of you have very busy schedules at the end of the year, so we’re trying something different with our classes to make learning something new much easier for you.

Let us know what you want to learn and we’ll schedule a class time just for you, whether you want to come by yourself or with a group of your friends. Many classes can also be taught on a drop-in basis whenever you visit the studio.

Do our regular open hours not work for you? Don’t worry: We can schedule classes any day of the week at any time that works for you!

Washing a fleece

Carding fiber


Spinning: Drop spindle

Spinning: Wheel


Weaving: Triloom

Weaving: Pin loom

Most classes have a rate of $10 per person per hour. Some classes have an extra materials fee, based on the materials you want to use.

Sit & Stitch Schedule

Bring a project to work on and come hang out in the studio with our other community members. The coffeepot is always on! We have plenty of extra Piper and Leaf jars if you’d like to grab some iced tea. Feel free to bring snacks, lunch, or dinner with you.

Cricket Club

Our Cricket looms are here!  You can go ahead and order a loom now if you like. Once we have enough interest, we will be launching our Cricket Club. We’ll meet once a month to start a new project and/or learn a new weaving technique.

Whether you have a Cricket or any other rigid heddle loom, get in touch and let us know you’d like to be part of the Cricket Club!
