Testimonials "I took a class at Auntie Zaza's so I could learn to knit.  I took a few individual lessons to get the basics of casting on, knitting and purling and binding off.  I learned to make a hat.  I then took a class on picking up dropped stitches and fixing mistakes.  I made a hat, now I am working on my first sweater.  Auntie Zaza gave me the confidence I needed.   I can't wait to start my next project." - Colleen "Auntie Zaza taught my 7-year old daughter to knit.  That night my daughter taught me the technique that Auntie Zaza showed her.  I was hooked.  I made a pair of mittens for my first project.  Then I made a scarf with a cable down the back.  I always wanted to know how to knit.  Auntie Zaza made it so easy and fun.  I am in the process of deciding which sweater pattern will be my next project."  - Shannon Weekly Crochet and Knitting Classes Students of different skill levels join together during a one hour class.  Group members work on individual projects and receive coaching, develop technique and explore creative approaches to individualize their work.  Some groups decide to work on one specific project.   Spin with Betsy All levels - Betsy introduces her students to the techniques of preparing wool for spinning.  In addition, she offers expert instruction in the art of spinning.  She encourages student with no experience to take an individual class.  She welcomes experienced spinners to join her small groups and develop more advanced skills.  Price $15/one hour group class.   $30 for one our provate instruction.  Call to schedule a lesson.
