Knitting Class at the College of Southern Maryland

is not, despite how it sounds in the flyer, being taught by me, (Ellen Lewis). Nor did I learn to knit at one of their classes. I learned to knit 25 years ago in a beautiful little knitting shop in Charlottesville, VA while I was at college.

Regarding the class at the community college, I really don't know anything about it, but I can tell you that our classes at Crazy for Ewe are fabulous! Our instructors are actual, award-winning knitting experts each with more than 20 years knitting experience. In our beginning knitting classes you will receive individual, personalized attention in the technical aspects of knitting. You will emerge from your beginning knitting classes at Crazy for Ewe not simply with the ability to make the stitches, but with an understanding of the fabric and how the stitches relate to one another. Our classes are taught in a warm, inspirational, shop setting, so you will be exposed to literally hundreds of different yarns with dozens of different fiber compositions at a wide variety price points. We have extremely affordable, durable, easy-care yarns as well as lavish luxury yarns for precious projects. We encourage you to to choose, not the most expensive, but the most appropriate and best quality yarn for your project. Your finished project represents a substantial amount of your time and effort - when it's all said and done, you want something that reflects the best you have to give. When you purchase your yarns at Crazy for Ewe, you have access to our helpful and knowledgeable staff to ensure that you select the right yarn and needles for your project and to guide you through the knitting process. At Crazy for Ewe, we really care about you and your project.

If you are considering knitting lessons, please call either the Leonardtown shop (301-475-2744) or the beautiful new location in La Plata (240-349-2853) to schedule a class. We offer lessons at whatever time is convenient for you.

    Ellen, thanks so much for the conversation! Thank you for your generous offer to extend a 10% discount to CSM’s knitting students to your stores. I know they will really appreciate it.

    As the Marketing Director for the College of Southern Maryland, I want to apologize on behalf of the college for any confusion from our recent newsletter. It was never our intent to mislead our readers, nor your followers about your connection with us! As a community college, we are proud of our REAL STUDENTS. REAL STORIES. marketing campaign. You impressed all of us in marketing with your passion for life and your adventurous spirit — that’s why we wanted to share your story in our recent personal enrichment newsletter. I know you took motorcycle training classes here at the college and told us that you love to try new things. It was our desire to share your story in order to inspire others to explore something new in their lives as well! Obviously, knitting is something you have been passionate about for a long time.

    To all — no, Ellen is not teaching the class at the college; although we would certainly love to have her! Our instructors are also passionate about knitting and all of our students will know they can get their supplies from Ellen’s shops, Crazy for Ewe! And now, they can get their supplies for a 10% discount thanks to her generosity!

    Hope this helps to clears up any confusion, and Ellen, I hope our efforts will help your business as it’s always a pleasure to be able to support our local businesses.

    Theresa
