Darren was great.


Attended: Crochet 1: Beginning Crochet

As I sit here crocheting my first scarf I can honestly say this class was amazing! I went from not knowing a single thing about crochet to now making garments I'm actually going to use! Our instructor Jen was very knowledgable and knew how to convey her knowledge in a way that absolute beginners could understand. She was also very patient and came and helped each student. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn the basics of crochet!!

Attended: Crochet 1: Beginning Crochet

Outstanding instruction with individualized practice to give you confidence in executing the basic crochet stitches. Small size means every question is answered, and instructors are patient and knowledgeable. Our course was taught by two different instructors (this is unusual), but the level of instruction did not vary.


Attended: Knitting 1: Beginning Knitting

I am having so much fun in this class. The instructor is so patient and made the entire experience seem as if you were receiving a personal training session. I recommend this to anyone whether you are a newbie like me or getting a refresher's course like many in the class.


Attended: Knitting 1: Beginning Knitting

Grace is an excellent teacher. This was my first time knitting and she was very patient. The store/studio is really pleasant and well organized.


Attended: Knitting 1: Beginning Knitting

The class did just what I needed it to do... it got be back into knitting again. I had forgotten how to do everything and needed a refresher. The teacher was very helpful, patient and went just at the right pace. Looking forward to part 2 next week.


Attended: Knitting Brush Up

Wanted to try knitting again and knew I needed to refresh my skills. This class did exactly that.... The instructor was great; very calm, encouraging+wonderful teacher. I picked up simple yet important info to make me want to try my hand at knitting again with confidence. Looks like my family members will be getting scarves !!!!


Attended: Knitting 2: Beyond the Basics

I have been knitting all my life, on & off for 50 odd years but I still learnt new methods at this class. The teacher was very patient & easy to follow. I am looking forward to doing another class.


Attended: Crochet Brush Up

OMG! I loved the class and I will be taking more classes. The instructor Jen was wonderful very helpful and knowledgeable. I will do other classes and tell others about it.


Attended: Knitting 1: Beginning Knitting

Great class for Beginning knitting. They have a wonderful website which is very helpful in recalling what has been thought in the class. The teachers are highly experienced and give individual attention during the class and allow each student to learn at their own pace and do teach techniques to correct the mistakes. They provide basic info on the yarns, how to select them , different patterns to choose from, how to give a good finishing to the project, how to read and understand the pattern etc. The lion Brand yarn studio has well equipped and very elegantly maintained yarn store. Great atmosphere to learn. Very helping and well coordinated staff. All in all perfectly designed class for knitting beginners.

Attended: Crochet 1: Beginning Crochet

This class was wonderful! Arabia was so helpful, energetic, and engaging. I had tried crochet before on my own and had no luck; now, I feel prepared to move forward with my own projects. Definitely worth every penny!


Attended: Knitting 1: Beginning Knitting

As a person who has never picked up a pair of knitting needles before, I found this class to be a very good starting point. The teacher was very helpful and knowledgable and I thought the class was very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this course to a friend and I look forward to taking additional classes at the Lion Brand Studio

Attended: Needle Felting Basics

The class was good. I learned to make a 3D felted cacti. The teacher was very nice and helpful.


Attended: Crochet 1: Beginning Crochet

Basically, I have been looking for crafty classes in New York City. I've found that it's difficult to locate the various studios that teach craft skills in the area. Course Horse, obviously, is terrific for compiling many offerings into one website. I'd never heard of Lion Brand Studio before, but the time and location of the class fit my schedule. It seems like a great store/workshop, and I look forward to going there again.
