Felting and spinning classes can be booked directly for one on one or small groups when we have availability in our schedule. Mostly those classes are held during weekdays and occasionally on a weekend if another event doesn't take us out of town or has the studio space booked. Find those classes by following this link.

Class Policies


Class supply costs may be included in the class fee (see class description.)  We request that yarn or fiber for classes be purchased at Spry Whimsy Fiber Arts so that we can ensure that the materials are appropriate for the scheduled class. 

Unless noted in the class description, please arrive 30 minutes before your class to select and purchase the supplies needed, or purchase them with us in advance.

Payment is due at the time of registration for scheduled classes with an instructor other than Peter or Ingrid.

Class fees must be paid in full at the time of registration to confirm your spot, either in person, online (if available), or with a credit card number over the phone.  608-239-0688

We keep our class sizes small to ensure each student gets personalized attention. For this reason we require students to register for our classes in advance with payment.  For our calendar classes, we have a class minimum of 3 students, so it may be fun to sign up with a friend or two!  Most felting and spinning classes are scheduled on-call and do not have minimums.  Please note that our classes are geared towards adults.

Cancellation Policy

If we cancel for any reason we will refund your class fees via the method it was paid. 

We know that life happens.  If you can't make a class that you have signed up for then we will try to accommodate as best we can.  Please note that our register does not allow credit card refunds after 120 days of payment date.

If you cancel more than 48 hours in advance of class date: We will credit 50% the class fee or reschedule you into another class where possible.

If you cancel less than 48 hours in advance of class date: No refund or credit can be applied.
