Customize your weekend by choosing some great Pinners GA classes :)

Pinner classes are the best because they are taught by the best people and presenters that can be found anywhere. All classes are one hour. We'll see you at the show! *If you'd like a reminder about the show, enter your e-mail at the bottom of the page.

* Classes are never "sold out" because we save seats for day-of-show walk up attendees (first come, first served). But if a class below says "Stand by only" it is sold out of pre-registered seats. Many of these classes have additional sessions at another time. Please note this is not the actual reservation page.
