Class Policies

Space is limited. Pre-registration and payment is required. Missed classes may be made up at a later session if the same class is offered again. If you wish to make up the class as a private lesson with the instructor, the private lesson fees will incur.

Fees listed are for the complete class, including all sessions but DO NOT include materials or patterns unless noted.

Students purchasing materials for a class will receive a 20% discount on yarn only.


Fees are refundable if you cancel within 5 days of the first class. Hillcreek or the instructor may cancel the class for lack of enrollment, and your fee will be refunded.

We offer classes for all skill levels, but not every class is designed for every level. To ensure that everyone gets the most of the class, please respect the skill requirements listed.

We ask that you please show up on time and have all your supplies, or get here early to purchase supplies.
