We have teaching as our first love so it's easy to keep that a priority. Almost all of our employees in the shop also teach classes and in the course of a regular day a lot of extra teaching is done - from showing someone the Kitchener stitch to explaining what a yo means.

We invite you to come in, take a class, ask some questions, or just say hi. We are here because we love to teach!
