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: 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!

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.

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!
