Teaching is a wonderful extension of my work as a professional crochet and knit designer and technical editor. A web search will reveal some of my published work over the last decade. As a craft teacher in the NYC area for over 6 years, I have worked with individuals, groups and classes of all ages and skill levels. Most of my experience focuses on working with older adults and people with special needs. Minors must have a supervising adult present. I do not work with groups of young children.
I have studied the history and mastered the skills to make and teach a vast variety of textile techniques. Please see my experience.
Private and group lessons or classes are provided in locations around the NYC area, in my space or via webcam. I charge by the hour, not by the person. You are welcome to share your lessons with others to divide the cost. My focus is on providing an entertaining, relaxing and enjoyable experience as you learn a leisure time activity. I am extremely patient and detail oriented. When you let me know what you would like to learn or make, I will guide you through everything from selecting materials to fine tuning your technique. Take a lesson with me to find out why my students love me.
For creative people and makers, crafting is like going to the gym. You will find great fulfillment and a sense of accomplishment if you set aside time on a regular basis to nurture this very important part of what makes you who you are. Think of me like a personal trainer. I will encourage and inspire you while you develop your skills and express yourself through a variety of physical media.

I have over 5 years of experience as a fully credentialed 8th grade science teacher and over 10 years as a substitute teacher (in all grades and subjects, including special education classes). I hold a valid teaching credential with CSETs passed in math, biological/life science, and geo/Earth science. I resigned from my tenured job to be a stay-at-home mom. Kids (of all ages) are important, and I would like the opportunity to continue teaching others.
Hi, there! My name is Johnnie and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2011 and have loved helping my students accomplish their goals.

Have a lovely day!
I'm a Harvard graduate with a Liberal Arts degree. I've been teaching high school and college students since I was a high school student myself, many years ago. Current and prior students have attended the University of Pennsylvania, Cornell, Princeton, and other prestigious schools.
All that highbrow stuff aside, I am a low key, fun teacher who helps make the material relatable- it's much more fun to think of Louis XIV as a spoiled Hollywood-style rich kid than as the king of France.
My name is Kat and i'm really looking forward to learning something fun with you! I consider myself a wannabe Glass Artist. I am currently working on a dinosaur quilt- completely done out of fused glass screen printed with glass powders.
I did not study Education at school, but for nearly two years i have been teaching glass fusing and basic sewing (ages 5-93) at a great art facility (no longer in business). I have been providing private lessons since September 2014.
I have a BA in Art History from CU Boulder and a Masters in Art Museum and Gallery Studies from Newcastle University. I grew up sewing, learned to knit just over 10 years ago, and got into quilting about 4 years ago (when I got my own machine and could stop borrowing my moms.) My first experience with glass was 6 years ago and I've been hooked ever since!
I consider myself a patient, fun, and encouraging instructor. I like to cater each lesson to your individual desires and ability while being fun and challenging. Sometimes you gotta go back to basics but i try to do so in a way that encourages and exemplifies growth.
I hope to work with you and help you reach your artistic goals, the grander the better!!
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
