Private Lessons

One-on-One Instruction for Any Knit or Crochet techniques or problems

We offer private lessons on an ongoing basis. If you have a project and are stuck, some one-on-one help could let you go on to the next part of your project with confidence. Although our customer service representatives can give good tips and offer a limited amount of help, a private lesson will help you to have more individualized instruction and is only $20 an hour. We regret that as a shop we are unable to give same day instruction, but if you leave us your name, number and a brief description of what you would like help with, we will have an instructor contact you asap.
