Beginning Knitting, Crochet, Weaving, Spinning and Needle Felting lessons are available by appointment during our business hours and cost $20. Please Call or Email us for scheduling and additional details.

We enjoy all the fiber arts and want you to enjoy them as well so classes are designed for people of all skill levels unless specified otherwise.

Occasionally we have a class that is taught by a teacher from out of town and a 50% non refundable deposit may be required at time of sign up. If that is the case, you will see a * note next to the class.
