A Note from Ellen

Whether you come to the studio for a lesson or are a paid member of the website, I want your learning experience to be special. When you stop by for an in-person knitting group or class I'll likely have a pitcher of iced tea in the fridge and a freshly prepared nibble (that's what my local friends call it) on the counter. When you visit the website you'll likely find new lessons in the New + Noteworthy section that aren't available on YouTube yet.

Our next in-studio study group will be on Saturday, April 6, 2024.
