The team at this Inglewood store have spent the last decade showing Calgarians how to knit in classes such as the two-part Learn to Knit, which will teach you how to do everything from purl stitches to read patterns as you make a buttoned cowl. If you’d prefer to master it from home, Stash offers its Learn to Knit instructional video series for free on YouTube.

If filling your home with flickering candlelight and dreamy scents gives you the warm fuzzies, this two-hour workshop is for you. With a drink in hand, you’ll discover the art of scent-blending, as you craft your own candle and reed diffuser in two custom fragrances.
