Attended: Absolute Beginner Knitting

I am truly an absolute beginner and didn't feel I received good advice when purchasing the required yarn and needles. The yarn kept splitting and the needles were too clunky for a beginner. And the instructor, while patient, could have provided a better introduction/overview before actually starting the actual knitting from the proper way to hold the needles to why the size of the needles matter.

Attended: Absolute Beginner Knitting

The person conducting the lesson was very good and patient with me. I liked her direction and friendliness. However, I assumed since it was called "a class" multiple beginners would be there when in actuality it was only me. This was good because I had complete attention and help but I was hoping to meet some other knitting beginners so I was a little disappointed. Overall I enjoyed my learning experience.

Attended: Spinning Appetizer

Great class for an absolute beginner like myself.

Attended: Absolute Beginner Knitting

I was surprised supplies weren't included. Not that I minded, just no where on the website did it state that.

Attended: Crochet Study Hall/Absolute Beginner Crochet

Gabi is a wonderful instructor. Teaching a complete beginner like me, she is encouraging, patient and explain things very clearly. I fell in love with crocheting right away and have signed up for subsequent classes with her.

Attended: Knitting Study Hall Class

I really enjoyed the class, the teacher was amazing and helpful. And because I was alone in the class, she taught me according to my level and to my interests. The shop is also great, I fall in love with it! Unfortunately I left the class and forgot to take some pictures!

Attended: Absolute Beginner: Knit a Fabulous, Artistic Gift!

Excellent class! Gretchen Kreutz was patient and sweet. I will definitely go back to this location for future classes. The facility is beautiful as well.

Ms. Serigatto was a terrific, patient teacher. I feel that I got an excellent introduction to tatting, and I had a wonderful time!

I really enjoyed my evening at the Knitting class. The teacher went out of her way to make sure we all understood the basics and even stayed after to help us out. I was very happy with the class and instructor!

Attended: Absolute Beginner Knitting

The class was very basic beginner knitting, which is just what I signed up for. The instruction was personal and thorough, and the instruction area was comfortable. I would definitely recommend this class for those interested in getting basic knitting skills!
