Private lessons are a flexible way to learn new skills and get intensive help with your knitting, crochet, spinning, weaving, or needle felting that is geared to your specific needs. We also schedule private lessons for children (we find the one on one environment allows us to work to the child's particular learning styles and attention span). We prefer to schedule private lessons during the week, but limited weekend slots are sometimes available. (Spinning wheel maintenance sessions are scheduled as private lessons.)

Private Lessons are priced based on the teacher.  They are $50 - $60  per hour for the first student, minimum 30 minutes.  Each additional student is an additional $10 per hour, to a maximum of 4 students per lesson. Please note that loom warping lessons are scheduled for an hour and a half for a rigid heddle loom and at least 2 hours for a shafted loom, depending on the loom size and warping complexity. Please allow us at least 7 days notice to schedule private lessons. If you are more than 15 minutes late for a schedule time, you will need to reschedule your lesson for a later time.

Due to staff and customer severe allergies and sensitivities, please do not wear perfumes, scents, or highly scented products into the shop.
