What others are saying...

What a gift!

Joanne G.

Before taking workshops with Marie, I made a lot of sweaters that didn’t fit, looked bad on me, or didn’t ever get done. With her positive reinforcement and simple to understand instruction, I have completed 5 sweaters that I actually wear and like how I look. Another one in progress! What a gift Marie is to sweater knitters everywhere!

Game Changer

Lindsey A.

I took my first knitting class from Marie and it was a game changer. I had always wanted to knit a sweater and the classes gave me the tools to do it.

I'm hooked!

Kimberly P.

I took my first class with Marie back in October of 2018, and I was hooked! She is an enthusiastic and generous teacher. By allowing us to try techniques as we go along and reminding us that "it's just knitting" she creates an immediate sense of confidence in what we are doing.
