    Suggestion:  Please create a calendar so we can easily see what classes are coming up in the month.  The list and categories of class information can be difficult and time consuming to process.  It would be very helpful to be able to see the class titles (perhaps color coded for relevant categories) with the functionality to click on the title which would take you to the detailed information.  

    My first issue is whether I can attend, and a monthy calendar would offer that information at a glance.

    The best way to navigate our schedule in calendar mode is to view our schedule online.  We only offer a pdf version for those that prefer a paper schedule: https://clients.mindbodyonline.com/ASP/adm/home.asp?studioid=14161

    There is a calendar function that allows you to view a week, or a specific day.  It also has a sort feature to look for a certain type of workshop on a certain day or week.  There is a pull down menu called class types, so if you are only looking for knitting workshops, you can choose that class type and then go directly to the week or day you wanted to check.

    I agree with Noyesflood below. Please go back to the PDF schedule option! Then we can see what’s coming up over the next 2 months and can plan our schedules accordingly. The other format also gave a quick overview of the class, as well as all times/dates. I prefer the option of having a schedule I can print out. Please, please return to this format! Thanks!

      Hi Hope,

      What Noyesflood had suggested (and many other customers did as well) was to switch to a calendar view, and we listened!

      We now have a class page that you can view in a calendar mode: http://www.lionbrandyarnstudio.com/index.php/classes-workshops/

      In addition we provide a printable calendar (link on this blog and on the class page), and providing the ability to search by category (workshop, master class, basic classes etc.) AND being able to view all workshops, master classes, classes, free groups etc, with full descriptions, times, days, prices on our online booking site. You can search this site by date, by category etc. AND book online: https://clients.mindbodyonline.com/ASP/home.asp?studioid=14161

      The old pdf in the list form, did not work for many, as they wanted an overview on a calendar. To view the printable workshop calendar or the printable beginning class list, just click on the links above, or from the class page: http://www.lionbrandyarnstudio.com/index.php/classes-workshops/

      Hope that helps. If you have any questions regarding our workshops. Give us a call at 212-243-9070, summer time is a great time to save on workshops with our Summer Yarncrafting University: http://www.lionbrandyarnstudio.com/index.php/save-up-to-175-on-summer-yarncrafting-university/

    Also, see your tag line about “45 workshops (5 brand new)!”. With the current format, how are your customers supposed to peruse them all? And what are the new classes? Sorry, but the new calendar/schedule format is not working well….
