Participant Testimonials:

"As knowledgeable, articulate, passionate, organized, and funny as Judith is, her ability to engage with us, knitters from a variety of backgrounds, was the great surprise. We developed into a group that wanted to find ways to stay together after the class. I came away with a firm understanding of the 20th‐21st c. evolution of knitting in this country and a lot of practical tips to improve my knitting projects. Her knowledge of knitting technology and books is superb; she wisely avoided audio‐visual equipment."
