I've been taking classes at Square Peg for several years and the experience has been so rewarding that I keep coming back. The tutors are terrific, knowledgeable and with the practical experience to impart their expertise to the students. The studio has a lovely creative vibe, and the small class size means students are not waiting long for instruction or help. I recommend Square Peg to anyone wanting to learn new skills in an enjoyable atmosphere. Lyn
