Welcome to the Woolshed! This is a site all about the crafts of knitting and crochet, what inspires me, and what you might want to learn.


My name is Judith Marciante, and I’m an obsessive and compulsive knitter. Yes, that is my confession.

I’ve been knitting since I was quite young, and I come from a long line of knitters and crocheters. My ancestors’ roots go back to the British Isles and Scandanavia, and I like to believe that I channel that heritage through my own love of knitting. As much as I love to knit (and crochet), I love to teach and inspire others. To me, knitting is love, and I want to share it.

I teach private lessons and small classes in my knitting studio, the Woolshed, so please contact me if you are interested in making arrangements. I also teach larger classes in venues around Petaluma, CA. See my Class page for scheduled classes.


I teach classes through my LYS, Knitterly, in historic downtown Petaluma, California. You can check here for listed classes. I also teach private lessons and small classes (2-4 people) in my Woolshed…please contact me to make arrangements.
