Changes coming…

by admin on June 8, 2011

Knitgrrl Studio is currently transitioning the way we do business. We still offer private lessons, online classes and digital products, but we’re phasing out much of our on-hand physical inventory in favor of on-demand delivery. Stay tuned for sale information this summer and additional information, and if you have a question about availability, let us know. We’re working on updating our shop catalog.

Any questions, please ask! info [at] knitgrrlstudio [dot] com — and thank you for your ongoing support!
