Classes at The Purple Purl


Just a reminder that we will be taking our summer class hiatus and no classes will run for the hot months of July and August, but we will have our Fall roster online by the end of August with our pending class schedule.

We offer a variety of classes that range from beginner to advance techniques and we look forward to introducing you to your skill sets of choice! The classes we offer classes fall into a few general categories:

Class Policies

| Registration | Cancellation | Accessibility | Private Lessons | Student Discounts |

Payment is due at the time of Registration

Class fees must be paid in full at the time of registration to confirm your spot, either in person, or with a credit card number over the phone.  416-463-1162 All class fees are subject to HST.

We keep our class sizes small to ensure each student gets personalized attention. For this reason we require students to register for our classes in advance with payment. We have a class minimum of 3 students, so it may be fun to sign up with a friend or two! Please note that our classes are geared towards adults. For kids/teenagers (8-17) we tend to organize lessons on a private/semi-private basis.

Please check your schedule carefully.

Cancellation Policy

If we cancel for any reason we will refund your class fees via the method it was paid if you come in, in person.  Or we will apply a credit to your shop account if you would prefer, for use to make any other purchases in shop.

We know that life happens.  If you can't make a class that you have signed up for then we will try to accomodate as best we can.  Please note the following if you cancel:

If you cancel more than 48 hours in advance of class date: We will credit your shop account for the full amount or reschedule you into another class where possible.

If you cancel less than 48 hours in advance of class date: No refund or credit can be applied.


Our shop is fairly accessible for people in wheelchairs, walkers or other mobility devices!


Private Lessons

Sometimes schedules can be tricky.  We are happy to teach you pretty much anything you want to learn and help you with your projects! We offer Private Lessons by advance appointment only. Please call us to make an appointment so we can set you up with the most appropriate instructor for your questions! Private lessons are $30 per hour.  We offer semi-private lessons as well for $18 per hour per student... great for signing up with a friend or two or Parent/Child combos and young adult students!

We also offer an ongoing Project 911 Help Clinics most Friday mornings for those of you that have questions that may not need a full hour of dedicated attention, but more than a 3 minute quick fix... (check the Knitting Class Page for dates exceptions) ... Space is limited so students need to pre-register, but this is a 2 hour session ($25) for you to bring your questions and be able to sit and work through your project challenges in a fun social atmosphere with an instructor on hand to help you along with your knitting and crochet projects.


When you arrive for a class you'll receive a nontransferable one-time discount card for 10% off yarn purchases. These cannot be combined with other discounts or used for class fees. Please present your discount card at time of purchase.


We ask that class project materials be purchased at The Purple Purl.


If you have a class request please continue to send us an email at with "Class Request" in the subject line and we will try to accommodate your ideas and schedules. Let us know if evenings or weekends are best for you.

Thank you so much for your interest and support! We look forward to stitching with you!


Happy Stitching!
