    Knitting 101 was fabulous. Erica is a great teacher. I left feeling confident that I learned the material presented. She was friendly, unbelievably helpful, knowledgeable, and accessible.

    Erica, the instructor, was great - friendly, patient, enthusiastic. I love that I learned the basics for $20 - knitting shops in Chicago are charing $100 for a class with a nearly identical description.

    Erica provided excellent instruction in several different manners so that people who learn through hands on, visual, paper instructions, etc. all could benefit. It was a very comfortable setting and really appreciated all of the individual attention she was willing to provide.

    Erica did a great job and taught exactly what I expected to learn - a huge strength for a short class where you could see things getting off track. The group was also just the right size and allowed for some fun/socializing in addition to the learning.

    I thought Erika was a great teacher - had a good sense of humor, but stayed focus on the task at hand. She was sweet, funny, and clearly really passionate about knitting. I was a little afraid I'd show up and it'd be a drab group of old ladies, but I was presently surprised to find young, fun girls there. I had a great time!

    I really enjoyed the class - I liked that it was small and kept small on purpose. I had tried knitting before, but having Erica there to watch and give feedback was really helpful.

    The teacher knew her craft and was very helpful! She really took the time to individually help people and make sure everyone understood her instructions.
