Great Teacher !
Anne-Louise explained everything I wanted to learn. Prior to the class I stated what topics I would like to cover and she did just that. she used examples and drawings to make my understanding much vivid. I look forward to having more classes with her.
Wynndi D.
Anne-Louise has a very intuitive approach to teaching which matched my kinesthetic learning style. She helped me learn how to use my machine and I will work on a project so she can help answer any questions at the next lesson. We were definitely a fit. Thanks.

I love giving baby blankets and quilts for gifts and she has taught me how to make gifts that I love and the people I am giving them to love also.

"I consider myself an experienced knitter so was surprised to find myself stymied by reading a more difficult pattern. Amy is a pleasure to work with as well as an extremely skilled teacher. Her explanations are clear and in one case her diagram clarified my confusion. I learned, laughed, and left Amy having learned what I needed to learn. I am impressed with her and will call her again."
