Sock Club | FEE: $100.00

Instructor: Carmen Ditzler. Sock Club! We meet monthly and it is a place for those either wanting to learn how to make different socks or for those who just share a passion for making them and want to be around others who are just as addicted. We are participant-driven so if there is a pattern you like or want to try and still want some guidance, bring it along and we will do our best to add them to the project list. Carmen is here to provide all the help you will need and we have a great group of sock lovers who know the best swear words! The cost of the evenings is $100 and that pays for four evenings (once a month, usually every third Friday of the month) of fun, support, friendship, and snacks. Sock club is continuous, you can start any month and the only requirement is that you need to have made at least one pair of socks already. You don't need a lot of experience but we do want you to have an understanding of the process.
