I love knitting, enjoying making a huge variety of items using many different techniques. I knit using the English style, having grown up in Cheshire, England, but also knit using the Continental style of knitting too. I have been teaching knitting in groups and on a one to one basis for a few years. My students have ranged in age from 8 years old to 80 years old.
If you need help with a specific project, learning a new technique or just starting out as a beginner knitter, please get in touch.

As the daughter of a knit shop owner, I’ve been exposed to knitting my whole life. I’ve been knitting for over 10 years, and my finished projects include sweaters, socks, hats, bags, pillows, and blankets. I teach my students to knit quickly and cleanly. I guarantee that as a result of my instruction, my students will learn to create products that they are proud of!

I'm an experience seamstress focused on plus sizes with about 15 years of sewing projects under my belt. I'm a home sewist who does it for fun, but I've started moving into making clothes for friends and family due to high demand. If you want to learn to make a pillow, pajama pants, or a quick skirt, I can help you do it! I specialize in plus size sewing, so if you're looking to make something that works on your body that's a bit more complicated, I can take you through the adjustments you need. Sewing has changed how I see my body-- I hope it helps you too!

About Kathleen

I started sewing when I was in elementary school! My Mom used to make Halloween costumes with me. When I got really into anime I wanted to attend comic book conventions in cosplay (costume) and my Mom decided that this was a bridge too far, so it was time for me to learn to sew myself. Now I have

Christopher N.
I was timid and shy. I could barely speak English and I had no business using a sewing machine let alone sewing together an original piece.
I found Laura on takelessons and decided to give her a try.
4 lessons later, I'm highly confident. Fluent in english, and I can sew together designer pieces that would make anyone's jaw drop.
Laura is my bastion to success, and I highly highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn.
Sandi
Laura helped me create my own pattern/garment from a tunic I already had. I had never taken an online- class before so I was concerned how effective it would be.
I was very impressed with Laura’s patience and instruction. She walked me through step by step and provided me with additional tips and videos that really helped me throughout the project
I highly recommend Laura. 😀
Sylvie
Great instructor!
Laura is patient and knowledgeable.I realy learned alot with her. As an confident beginner,I took a 2 days class.
She took her time to explain me some techniques such as sewing invisible zipper. Highly recommend Laura classes.

My teaching style is progressive and tailored to the individual student. Each lesson builds on what was learned before. We go over games that the student has played, especially losses to higher rated players. For beginning players and juniors I teach the fundamentals and build from there. Suggested books are Comprehensive Chess Course, for beginners, and Chess The Easy Way by Reuben Fine, for more advanced players.

About Chris

Chris is an excellent teacher and he's really helped me improve my game. In one lesson he showed me an opening that I used to win against a strong player. We go over games that I've played and he always has helpful suggestions. I highly recommend Chris as a chess teacher.

"Matthew is very knowledgeable of the game. He is easily approachable and has the ability to connect with students of all skill levels as well as multiple generations. My teenage son was comfortable with him immediately and he is not always receptive to learning if the setting feels awkward to him. As for my own experience I received valuable insight into my own games after reviewing score sheets from tournament games and isolating those ever present blunders that seem to lurking on every chess board just waiting to be discovered. Anyway I give a hearty two thumbs up to my millennial friend."

5 Questions Every Jewelry Designer Should Have An Answer For

Interested in trying your hand at jewelry design? Before you begin, consider the following 5 questions, as outlined by Nashville jewelry designer and teacher Warren F... Susan felt very unsure of herself. And unsure of her jewelry. Would people like it? Was the color mix appropriate? Was the construction secure? Was the price smart and fair?
