UPDATED MASK POLICY | August 25, 2020

We adhere to State of Ohio guidelines requiring face coverings in public places. Mask-wearing while shopping at Rabbit & Rocket and during classes is required by the State Health Department. Our team has been wearing masks when teaching and will continue to do so. 

If you are experiencing symptoms of any contagious illness (not just COVID-19), we ask that you request transfer of your class registration to a future class. We’re happy to honor rebooking for a later date.

Our Wellness Precautions: We are easily able to provide lots of distancing between students for this class, are sanitizing the space and tools between guests, and have a medical grade HEPA air filtration machine in place.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at the shop: (740) 901-3041.

This is an ever-evolving situation and we will adjust policies as updated medical guidance is available to inform our policies. 


We have dozens of classes from beginner to advanced! Check out our List of Classes if you have at least two and as many as six people in your group! If it’s just you, send me an Open Class Request and we’ll find you a partner and get the class listed for anyone to join.  If you and a group of up to five friends would like to schedule a Private Circle, Sit & Sew or Crafting time at Rabbit & Rocket, you can learn more here about booking Private Circles.

See you soon!
