I came in a lizard. Yea, I had some experience, but I needed brushing up. Not only did she make strong eye contact, but with an intense 10 minute stare, she transmuted all her knowledge to me. I left her home, a Dragon.

Excellent job. I was able to knock out two small items in the two hours, after having not spent a single moment prior ever using a sewing machine.

Greetings!
I have been knitting for nearly a decade now, and along the way what I’ve learned is that people thrive when they are being encouraged. I believe that every person can learn to knit if they are willing to be patient and gentle with themselves. Knitting is simply a relationship between the brain, the hands, and yarn. I do not like to tell people there is a “right or wrong” way to knit. As long as you get the desired results and are able to translate instructions, that’s great! I am an ambidextrous knitter, meaning I knit English and Continental style (left or right handed knitting). I also love teaching knitters of all ages- especially children or older adults who have never tried to knit before.
Positivity, grace, gentleness, and a positive attitude are what I rely on most heavily to teach. I truly believe that every single person can learn to knit in an hour. I have taught lessons to groups of thirty women at a time in Uganada with only two sets of knitting needles, and ...

I have been teaching crochet since 2013, with levels ranging from beginner to advanced. I can teach students the basic stitches to some of my favorite, more advanced techniques, including crocheting in the round, charts, lace, and colorwork.

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 Knif

Rhiannon was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Looking forward to the next lessons!
Danielle
I'm enjoying my classes. I've been bringing Rhiannon stitches I want to learn without any notice, and she is always able to help me on the spot to learn them. Her flexibility (both in what I want to learn and in scheduling) makes private classes a pleasant and worthwhile investment. Highly recommend!

I have already improved my USCF rating by 372 points in 3 months!! After having tried 3-4 other chess teachers, Sam's been the absolute best and will stick with him!"

"Great teacher!

Matt is honest. If there is something he doesn't like about your chess game, he will definitely come out and say it. His criticism allows you to focus on that part of your game. You will be able to improve your flaws on and off the chess board.

Matt is also very competitive. If you beat him in a game of chess, it's like you've beaten him in a game of life. The day you've accomplished this, you will know the grasshopper has become the master.

If you're new at taking lessons, you need to start here, with Matt. I would highly recommend him to any chess player who is seeking to improve their game, beginner or advanced."

Besides being a chess Grandmaster with a thorough grasp on the entire game, she was also personable, engaging, encouraging, and willing to work with me (although I am not a very good player yet). I thoroughly enjoyed working with her, and am looking forward to future lessons and becoming a better player."

"At 34 years old I never expected to be taking chess lessons from a young prodigy who is 15 years younger than me. But I am so happy I took the chance. Danial has not only shown me the beauty in the game, but taught me life lessons that I have even used in my professional career. Each lesson really is specified to what I need to work on, and he can answer any single question I ask on the topic. The best teacher I have had in a very long time, and I would recommend him extremely highly. A diamond in the rough."
