Learn

We love sharing the skills we have learned over the years with friends old and new. We teach all levels of knitting and crochet (and sometimes other fun, fiber-based crafts).

Our instructors are experienced educators and wool-workers. They have taught many entertaining classes in both knitting and crochet and are eager to help.

Our Instructors:
Trudy McFarlane, Jane Bright, Jill McElya, Cindy McDaniel
Susan Williams, Susan Crawford


Lessons

Lessons are one-on-one sessions for either beginners or to get you started, or re-started, on a specific project. We also offer "help" lessons, scheduled for one hour, when you need more than just a quick fix.
