A must have class!

This is a must take class for anyone working with fibers. The choice of yarn can make or break a project. Most of us learn the hard and sometimes expensive way. Some just never get it. This class puts it all together.

Great class

Excellent class with an excellent teacher. I really loved her teaching style and I've learnt a lot of useful information. From now on, I look with a different eye my skeins and feel more confident on choosing the right yarn for my garment.
Thank you!

excellent class

excellent class with an excellent teacher. I've never paid real attention to fiber and I hardly knew anything about it, , but with this class, I finally know what fiber I'm kniting and why.
this class is important because it gives the knitter the possibility to choose thoughthfully according to the result he or she's looking for,
so thanks Clara
