How much does the materials cost?
Answer from Cendrille A. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
In the course of 3 sessions class, they try to active hat, scarf, and neck warmer. The school sells high-end Italian Yarns and if the students make all 3 items, the cost is around $80. But students can come with any yarn they want if the quality is not important.

The instructor (Berta) was great. Unfortunately, due to Covid 19, our last class was cancelled.

Berta is an expert knitter and very patient with all her students. I enjoy and look forward to going to class each week.

I would not recommend this class to someone who is just looking to try something new and to meet new people or if you would like to take part in a relaxing and potentially fun, new hobby. The teacher was very impatient and at times frankly rude. Although there were lighter times in the class (if you got the method right) the general tone is very generally discouraging. So much so, that I opted out of going back the third time to avoid being embarrassed and criticised in front of a room full of strangers. Having to pay for new materials for each new item that you made was also a negative, although understandable.

Reviewed by Beverly D. on 1/30/2020
I loved the knitting course. Berta (the instructor) is extremely patient and has a good way of explaining the concepts so that you can remember how to do it when you are practicing on your own. The assignments in between class are designed so that you have plenty of practice so that you can get comfortable learning what is new. The store is absolutely beautiful! The location is central to everything and easy to get to. I looked forward to attending my classes every week. I was so excited about the course that I think that I told all of my friends that I was learning how to knit.

Reviewed by Bianca D. on 3/4/2018
I had my first class with Berta and I am actually knitting now! She was patient with me, even when I made (many) mistakes. Additionally, the class was small enough that I was able to get tons of individualized attention and help. The yarn shop is also beautiful and filled with quality yarn and needles.
