Private lessons are a great way to learn to knit or crochet or to advance your skills at your convenience and pace. We’ll teach you the basics, a specific skill (like knitting lace) or a specific project (like modifying a sweater to fit your body).
Cost: Starts at $30 per hour for one person and depends on your goals and the instructor. We recommend a two-hour lesson to start (especially for beginners!).

Shahnaz (@yarnmonkey) taught herself to knit in 2003 and hasn’t put her needles down since! She has taken knitting lessons from Stephen West, Nancy Marchant, Veera Valimaki, Deborah Newton, Amy Herzog and Patty Lyons, among others. She enjoys visiting yarn shops around the world, learning local techniques, trying new yarns, and connecting with locals through a common love of yarn. Her passion is learning new techniques and experimenting with new yarns. When she’s not knitting, cycling or being dog-mom to Boomer, she is a practicing physician in her spare time.
Fran learned to knit when she was 12, but has been a lifelong maker. Her current obsession is crochet, which she picked up in the doldrums of 2020. Her frustration with fast fashion and consumerism led her to start @FrannyGirlFibers where she focuses on using upcycled yarns to create bespoke apparel and home goods. She appreciates how creating things forces her to slow down and be present in her body. She believes we are all in desperate need of slow living. She loves bright colors and whimsy and tries to create unique pieces that make life more fun and beautiful. When she’s not knitting or crocheting, you can find her in the kitchen pursuing another passion–food!
