“I thought the store was beautifully organized. There was a wide variety of yarns with various textures and price points. The beginning knitting class was very informative. The instructor fully explained the knitting techniques of casting on and the knit stitch. She was very attentive to making certain that everyone in the class understood and could fully execute casting on and the knit stitch. I had never picked up knitting needles before attending this class. I look forward to the next lesson.”
“They're expensive but the instruction was good. Good quality yarn.”
