Arm knitting is an easy , creative activity that can quickly turn into a hobby.  It is a form of knitting where the knitted cord is created using your arms and hands instead of knitting needles.  By learning a few repeatable steps, anyone whether they are 6 or 96 can learn to create their own blankets and throws.

This class does not require any knitting experience.  In about 2 hours, we will take you step-by-step to learn the basic movements of knitting your own project.  The instructor will use photos, video and hands-on coaching to instruct students.  Showing the basic moves in the first 60 minutes of class and the remaining 30 minutes for questions and troubleshooting.  Students will knit their own funky throw!

Dave Fitzsimmons opened Miiru Trading in 2018 as a brand spanking newcomer to the crafting and textile industries.  Miiru was created with the intent to take the strengths of small town communities into how it does business and leverage David's experience in Asian countries to do the work that he wants to see more of in the world:

  • open the North American marketplace to small suppliers in developing nations and;
  • run workshops, classes and events that create a little bit more novelty to the world!
