The class was held at the Malden Mills Retail Outlet in Lawrence, MA. It cost $70, which included: 3 pounds of Polarfleece remnants to use for our projects, 2 yards of PatternEase tracing material, a copy of the book Polarfleece Pizzazz, and a sandwich or green salad for lunch.

There were six of us in the class, which was held in a spacious conference room with plenty of tables for us. I don't know what the maximum number of students was; for some classes they have upwards of 25 people in the same room!

Each of us chose a large project or several small ones from the book, and the instructor, Rosemary, guided us through it. With only six students, and a 4-hour class, there was lots of individual attention. Rosemary was very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable, and a real Polarfleece evangelist. In our class, there were two different pullover variations, two vests, as well as mittens and hats. It was helpful to hear the tips for the other projects for future reference.


Malden Mills offers lots of classes at their Lawrence facility, and a smaller number at their Seattle facility. It's well worth looking into if you are in the Boston area. Arrive early to pick out your remnants and maybe do a little pre-class shopping!
