A Niche for Knitting: Boston Center for Adult Education Will Offer Single Session Knitting Classes


 
PRLog - Aug. 13, 2014 - BOSTON -- WHAT: Bostonians definitely know a thing or two about layering up to go outside. Just in time for the fast approaching fall season, the Boston Center for Adult Education (BCAE), Boston’s award-winning adult education center, is now offering single-session knitting classes beginning September 2014. Those looking to master the art of knitting a hat or a scarf for the chillier Boston days, or simply looking for a crash course in the relaxing hobby are in luck; there will be a class offered for each of these preferences. A favorite pastime for many, students will not only master a new skill, but they’ll leave the course with the knowledge of how to create a comfortable new accessory to wear, keep around the house, or pass on as a cozy gift.  Interested knitters can register for classes online or call the Boston Center for Adult Education at 617-267-4430. See below for additional details and the full class schedule.
