This was for both of my daughters and they liked the lesson, but they said they thought they would learn more. They said that they were taught one thing (one way to knit) which took about 10-15 min then left alone to practice for the 1.5 hours plus

The Golden Fleece is sort of like a haven for knitters. I feel like I have discovered a new world. Gunilla, the owner and her daughter were very patient in showing me the very basics of knitting and kept it positive. I will be back! Thank you

My 10 yr old daughter, her pal, and I took the intro knitting class. Gunilla an Breana were very welcoming and helpful. We had a lot of fun, learned a lot, and really appreciated Gunilla's patience and guidance! Still inspired, we even did a bit of knitting last night!

It was great. The employees and the owner of the shop gave a class that was very informative. They couldn't have been nicer. I will be going back.

From Our Editors

Upon moving to the Bay Area from Sweden, the first yarn store Gunilla Leavitt visited was The Golden Fleece, then in a different location. She went on to work in yarn shops all around the Bay for years, earning the title Knitting Doctor for her troubleshooting advice on visitors' projects. Leavitt has recently come full circle by taking over ownership at The Golden Fleece, where she channels her experience and passion for yarn craft into helping a new flock of visitors.

A prismatic array of yarn skeins fills the shelves, in diverse materials that include everything from raw silk and cashmere to alpaca and acrylic-wool blends. Classes and workshops for all skill levels help customers transform that yarn into clothes, as does the store's stock of notions, magic wands, and patterns.
