Private Spinning Lessons

We offer private lessons for beginner through intermediate levels of crochet, knitting, and wheel spinning. Since we are a working dyelab, lessons are offered outside of normal shop hours on weekdays or during shop hours on Saturday.

If you just need some quick help with a project, feel free to bring it in and we will do our best to assist you. If you need more advanced help that may take over 30 minutes, please schedule private lesson time. All of our spinning lessons are with wheels. Due to a handicap, we are unable to assist with spindles.

Most of our lessons include materials to ensure your success with your project. Good tools and good yarn = success! 

We offer discounts to those wanting to learn with a friend or family member. Groups are limited to four people or less with no more than two children beween the ages of 10-15 per group. Contact us for booking.
