Classes

Classes are half day, full day, or multi-day depending on the class.

Class hosted by guilds and groups are for a maximum of 20 students and minimum of 5 students in person and virtual.

Virtual classes will be broken up into multiple sessions and are live virtual classes. I have my own Zoom account we can use for the virtual classes. All virtual classes include a 30 minute one-on-one meeting with each student to answer any questions and view their progress. These meetings are optional for the student.

Class fees vary depending on the class. Most classes include patterns and handouts. Some classes have optional kits for purchase.

In addition to the guild and group classes, I will be hosting classes individuals can take. All classes hosted by me are virtual. See calendar for upcoming events.

Any of my patterns can be created into a custom class.
