Welcome to Wendy’s Knitting & Crochet Lessons Online Edition!!

Tech (what you need to participate in an online lesson with Wendy):

  • You’ll need to have a gmail address. If you don’t already have one, here’s where to go to set that up: Follow the procedure from the ‘Create an Account’ button.

  • You’ll also need: 

    • A webcam and microphone - this could be a smartphone, an ipad or tablet, a laptop (if you can Skype or Facetime on it, it will work great!)

    • Something to prop it up with. If you’re using a laptop, maybe put it on a desk or table. You may already have a stand for your tablet or phone, but it’s okay to prop it up with materials from around the house. This stand made from a piece of cardboard box works well:

    • Try to make sure you have your pattern, yarn, needle(s), and anything else you’ll need close at hand.

Scheduling & Payment

Once you’re set up to join in an online lesson, let’s get you scheduled. Wendy’s hours for online lessons are Tuesday-Friday with 3 time slots: 3 p.m., 4:15 p.m., and 5:30 p.m. These will be listed on the Yarnivore Calendar. Choose the time you want and it will open a page that will show you the days available. Choose your day and click “add to cart” and finish the checkout process. If the time slot you want shows "add to waitlist" instead of "add to cart" then someone has already claimed that time.

Once you checkout, please email Meredith (Wendy’s helper) at She’ll get in touch with you to confirm your gmail address.

If You Can’t Make Your Appointment

If you find out the day of the appointment that you’re going to be late by more than a few minutes or need to reschedule, please text Wendy directly on the Hangouts app. We will not be able to refund same day cancellations. If you with to schedule a new appointment, please return to the Calendar and sign up again.

If you find out a day or more before your appointment that you need to reschedule, please email or text Wendy at Time slots may fill up fast, so we’d like to know that you can’t make it and make those times available for others.
