About Sheri L
Crochet and Knitting have been my most loved crafts. I have spent much time learning the basics and beyond over the last 30 +/- years. I am especially drawn to helping left-handed persons. So many have been told that if they could not learn to knit right-handed to just forget it. It is NOT true. I am a current member-in-good-standing of the CUMC Knitting Knot. Member since 2009.

About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

As with crocheting, I can teach a range of students, from those with the beginning desire to learn to students wishing to hone specific techniques. My favorite techniques include in the round and double pointed needles, because who doesn't want to learn to avoid more sewing?

About Rhiannon
My name is Rhiannon and I am a third generation crafter. Originally I went to school for art history, all the while crafting. Eventually I had enough of studying other people's work and instead wanted to make my own and empower others to do the same.

I consider myself to be the "Swiss Army Knife" of crafters. I have delved into nearly every craft and love passing this knowledge onto my students. For these reasons I have a diverse range of crafts I can teach, including: knitting, crochet, embroidery, hairpin lace, needle felting, and shuttle tatting. In addition to my passion for a variety of crafts, I also love teaching a variety of skill levels, from students beginning their first stitch to someone who wants to redesign a pattern.

With a positive attitude and a willingness to learn I can teach you any of a variety of crafts.

Myself and a co-worker spent 3 lunch hours with Rhiannon learning the basics of crochet. Rhiannon taught us the various stitches and patiently worked with us until we were comfortable with each one. She also directed us to an online resource to support her instruction that we could refer to as needed. This was our first online lesson of any kind and we were extremely happy with what we learned and the convenience of learning it online. Thank you Rhiannon. :)

If you want to learn HOW to knit the best you can, and WHY the best way gives you the best result, it is Patty you want to learn from. She is able to scale her teaching to simplify and clarify, from first steps in yarn and needles to complex maneuvers, with excellent instinct for where the student's abilities currently lie, and to enhance the student's skill with immediately applicable takeaways. She teaches your knitting to soar. I am pumped and cannot wait for my next class!

I am a self-taught, long time knitter with the most basic knowledge. I have eschewed many patterns that require advanced techniques. One session with Patty was revelatory about the why of doing. I left with greater confidence, eager for my next lesson.

What would you like to learn? Basic stitching or specific techniques? Learn how to use Ravelry. Get help with a current project. Are you left-handed? Bonus! I teach righty or lefty as needed.

Make a list of “Things I Want to Work On” and we can put together a great lesson plan and schedule. Here are some skills and techniques to think about to get your list started. Ask me about anything else, if you don’t see it here:

Stitches and Techniques –
• Basic or advanced stitches
• Lace and openwork increases and decreases
• How to read charts
• Knitting in the round
• Tubular cast on
• Beading to embellish projects

Math Made Easy -
• Reading the Yarn Ball Band for yarn weights and hook sizes
• Gauge and substituting yarn
• Tackle your niggly math questions

About Ellen
Whether you want to begin knitting or crocheting, or already love to, there’s always something new to learn. I love all aspects of knitting and crochet - color, texture, and creation. And I love sharing all this with my students. I personally enjoy the math of it, and can help make it easy if math is not your “thing”.

Would you like to learn basic skills, hone current ones , or enhance your experience with new techniques? If you're in the middle of a project and need help, or have specifice technique(s) you'd like to work on, consider booking a 15 minute class, or a series of them.

Choose from these subjects, or tell me what you’d like to work on:

• Reading the Yarn Ball Band - Why the information on it is helpful and important
• How to use Ravelry - A knitting community full of useful information
• Fiber Math…Yes you can
- How to understand gauge and yarn weights/quantities.
• How to Read and Translate Charts
• Help with a Current Project – Understanding a pattern, technique, or correcting a mistake
• Knitting Lace and Openwork Basics – How to do increases and decreases
• Bead Crochet – Crochet necklaces and bracelets, or embellish knitting or crochet projects with beads.
• Hyperbolic Crochet – For those that love math or want to learn how to crochet curves from a flat surface (think of coral, or the edge of a curly lettuce leaf like kale)
• Your wish list of knitting or crochet skills…

I have been teaching since 2012 and am available to teach lessons online and in NYC. I learned teaching skills from some of the most loved and respected teachers in well-known stores, teaching venues, and events. I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals, and have fun while we work together. As an added bonus, I teach both right and left handed as needed. Do you need a time, place, or topic not listed here? Just ask. We can probably work something out.

Enrich your fiber crafting experience. What would you like to learn? Contact me and let’s get started.

I have been crocheting for over 15 years and knitting for over 5 years. My true passion is knitting but I teach both. I taught for Michael's craft stores for a little over a year and then decided to venture out on my own and teach privately until I am able to reach my ultimate goal of owning my own yarn store. My current students say I have a lot of patience and am a joy to learn with. I can teach anywhere from beginner lessons to advanced techniques such as cables, lace and socks.

Do you want to learn to knit?

Do you want to know how to handle a ssk, psso?
Do you want to try something new?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions than I can help you!
I am an expert knitter with over 15 years of experience under my belt. I have patiently taught many how to knit and they are still knitting to this day!

Let's get you knitting!

About shara
Hi! I have been knitting over 15 years and patiently have taught many students how to knit and how to advance their skills. I teach new knitters the continental style (where you hold the yarn in your non-dominant hand and "pick" the yarn with your dominant hand). It is a little trickier to teach, but knitters who use this style are able to knit faster once they get the hang of it. When I am not knitting, I have a full-time job doing social media. I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your knitting way!
