With the knitting lessons, we'll start out learning how to prepare your piece, read basic patterns, learn how to cast on and off. We'll go through the basic stitches (knit and purl), and how to use them to make a scarf.

About Brianna
Hi, I'm Bri! I'm a graduate of North Central College with a BA in Music (Emphasis in Composition and Percussion) and a minor in History. I absolutely love music, every single aspect of it. I love to make music a part of everybody's lives who want and need it. I want to help you with your musical needs. I have been playing percussion for 17 years, singing for 23, and playing piano for 19 years. I was a member of a recording and performing Chicago band, Oblio and Arrow, where I provided backing vocals and helped with the song arrangements. I also record vocals for different artists hooks, jingles, choruses, and entire songs (covers and originals).

History has always fascinated me. They way our world has developed and changed, and continues to evolve is amazing. Everything can be tied back to the past, and I feel it's important to take
a look back, put yourself in that time, and really study how things were to help understand why things are the way they are now.

Crocheting and knitting are a couple of good habits/hobbies I picked up about 8 years ago. I sell scarves online and I'm always working on some sort of project. I will have you knitting and pearling with the best of them!

Music, history, crochet, and knitting....I'm your girl!

Stella is a wonderful teacher. What I had been unable to teach myself, she taught me in no time. Patient, thorough, funny, interactive and did I say patient? And in seconds, she knew my machine better than I. And who knows, I may decide to learn a new craft just so I can continue working with her.

I started knitting to help with my tremors and it didn't take log for it to turn into a love and passion. I knit everything (socks, dresses, hats, scarves, sweaters, shawls, blankets, and baskets, and more). I love teaching different styles and techniques of knitting and the history behind them. I currently am knitting for an online store that supplies clothing and decor to varies high end retail stores and have pop up locations in Boston, MA.

About Matthew
Hello, there! My name is Matthew! I've been teaching private lessons since 2014 and have loved helping my students learn the knitting/crocheting basics, expand their understanding of their abilities, and find a proactive way to relieve stress and bad moods. I teach knitting English or Continental style, multiple cast on methods and when to use them, different increase and decrease methods achieving different looks depending on the pattern and desired outcome, and finally different bind off methods.

I knit and crochet for a high fashion handcrafted company (The Third Piece), I have an Etsy shop, and am commissioned to crochet for international competitions. I'm a kind and outgoing person and my teaching style is relaxed yet focused, goal oriented, and fun! Knitting and crocheting are wonderful ways to express yourself, relieve stress,
and to make gifts for multiple occasions. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Matthew has been an outstanding teacher and has been very patient with me in his teaching. I frequently get frustrated early with myself on projects, but he was excellent in making me pace myself. He is extremely professional and knowledgeable about various techniques. He adapted his teaching to the technique of knitting which worked best for me. I HIGHLY recommend Matt for Knitting Lessons!

Currently a pattern designer for Red Heart yarns, I've been teaching knitting and crochet professionally for six years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to knit and purl and as time goes on you'll be able to make whatever wonderful project you can dream up, from sweaters to stuffed animals. I typically use my own teaching materials supplemented by some handouts from the Craft Yarn Council. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Laura
Hi! My name is Laura and I have been teaching professionally, in one capacity or another since I graduated from college in 1998. I currently design knit and crochet patterns for Coats & Clark (the largest craft manufacturer in the world). My mother taught me to knit and crochet at such a young age that I don’t remember a time when I haven’t known how to knit or crochet. In 2010 I began teaching needle-crafts, as well as selling the same items I’d been making and giving away to loved ones for many years. I also began creating and selling hand spun yarn. I have been developing and designing patterns since 2013. Once you start knitting, the possibilities are endless!

About Amy
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.

I've taken lessons from Amy for both Crochet & Knitting. She is awesome!! I'm ambidextrous, a lefty by nature but do many things with my right and Amy was able to show me both left & right ways of knitting to see which one was more comfortable for me. She is knowledgeable and extremely patient, upbeat personality and makes learning fun. My 9yr old took a class with her and loved it. Don't hesitate, Amy is awesome.

Learn how to knit from someone who absolutely LOVES to knit and will inspire you with this artistic hobby.

Are you a beginner that just knows what yarn is? Do you want to know how to read a pattern or how to do a new technique? Do you want to learn how to read what the labels mean on the yarn or what it means to check your gage? Have you found a pattern in a book or online that you are excited to try? Have you made a mistake in your project and you need help or your project doesn't look quite right? You can call me anytime and I will help you through it. I have been there and I will be there to ensure you get to the finish line of your project.

About Bernadette
I have been knitting for twelve years and I have ten years of teaching experience. I have taught all of my children and the neighborhood children to knit and enjoy uplifting the spirits of others with this beautiful art.

I am located in California and am available on webcam only unless by appointment in person. My primary focus when tutoring is to ensure that the experience is a happy one and the student learns the requested skill and is more confident about knitting that before we engaged. Yarn is very forgiving. Knitting takes patience and time but is very relaxing. I enjoy every moment of it.

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME

I enjoy knitting everything and with every type of yarn. I do not discriminate. The only type of yarn I do not like is the yarn that runs out in the middle of a project. I enjoy knitting for charity and for those in ne
ed. I donate to hospitals and I knit for people that are battling cancer. I encourage others that I teach to knit with the same amount of love and compassion. This is a great passion of mine and I want to share my passion with the world. This is a lost art and I want to continue this wonderful art to every generation. I am also on instagram at #detsysknitting.

LESSON DETAILS

Please inform me what you would like to learn, what your want to make before the lesson to avoid wasting time. I would also like to ensure that I am prepared with materials, equipment, books, etc. to ensure full learning occurs. The student is expected to bring their equipment.

I learned to knit when I made a scarf. I have been knitting for 2 years. Bernadette taught me how to knit when I was only 8 years old. Bernadette is the best knitting teacher because she knows a lot about knitting and she won't go faster than you are ready to go. She moves at the right speed. She knew when I needed help and she taught me how to pearl too. I liked learning how to read a pattern and how to use different yarns.

The most important thing for me is that my studans enjoy the process of learning to knit and have a good time while do it.
We start off with the basics, putting the stitches on the needle and the knit stitch.
The first thing is to get comfortable with the knitting process. When my students are feeling comfortable we learn the purl stitch (there are only 2 basic stitches in knittings and how you combine them makes up wall stitch patterns). Our first project will be a scarf.
After the basics are learned and my studets feel confident we move on to a more changling project and the possibilties are endless.
It is my Pleasue to share my Love of Knitting with my Studants

About Edna
