Starting in September, Lynn Chaney of Little Luxuries, LLC will offer knitting classes to the public. According to Chaney, the classes will cost $20 per person for a 6-week session, and the classes will meet once per week. Chaney mentioned that students will need to bring their own materials. When asked about the inexpensive price for the classes, Chaney said, “I like to keep my prices down here,” and explained that she wanted to keep the classes affordable to anyone in the area who had a desire to learn. Chaney will be closing her shop downtown, but Common Ground Coffee Co. has offered to allow the knitting classes to meet in their building.
When asked about the beginnings of her knitting work, Chaney said that she took up the hobby in 1999. Chaney said, “I taught myself to knit . . . and it went from there.” Chaney said that she had several people ask her to teach them to knit, and from those queries came the idea to hold knitting classes in the area.
In addition to her knitting courses, Chaney takes special orders for knitted goods. During the interview, she was working on a beautiful pastel yellow baby blanket.
While her store at 13 N. Main is still open, Chaney also has several antiques to sell, including a unique writing desk made in 1919.
