Janine M.MACRAME - Large Plant Hanging
Absolutely LOVED this class. Amy was a wonderful teacher, super patient, and just really fun to learn from. My friend and I hit unusually heavy traffic and were unfortunately 30 minutes late. Amy did a great job of bringing us up to speed quickly while still engaging our other classmates. I was surprised how easy macrame is- just like making a big friendship bracelet! Was excited to learn this skill and can't wait to try it again.

I had such a great time in this class! It's nice to do something new/creative after work with some lady friends or to go and make NEW ones! My friend and I planned to go to this class together, we BYOB'd and left with a great piece and a new skill! Amy was a delightful teacher, her instructions were simple, she helped when we were struggling and was prepared with set up, beads, and even a light snack/water! I highly recommend this class!

It was a really fun class. Amy is an amazing teacher and I learned a ton. I've since been making my own macrame creations at home!

Loved the class!! Amy's a great teacher and it was so nice to walk out with a finished piece. The cost of the class was very reasonable.
