From learning to cast on and work a knit stitch to understanding techniques like brioche, cables or mosaic, I believe knitting should be fun and enjoyable - not stressful - and is attainable by all!

I have a LOT of patience! All you need is the desire to learn to knit. If you never have knitted before, I will get you knitting. If you want to learn, but believe you can’t learn because someone told you can’t learn to knit, I will prove that you can knit. If you have knitted a long time ago, but forgot all of it or most of it, I will bring it back to you. If you already know the basics of knitting, but don’t know how to get beyond the simple knitted squares and rectangles, I can get you to the next level. If you know knitting basics, but gave up because you make a lot of mistakes, I will show you how to fix mistakes, so that mistakes don’t become traumatic. If you know the basics, but want to learn a different technique such as color work, cables, lace, or more, I can teach you. Do you have trouble reading patterns or charts, I can take the mystery out of them.

Because of COVID-19, I only teach online for now. I use Zoom for my teaching platform only. Please get familiar with ...

I have to update my review now that I've had a bunch of lessons with Amy. People who can do something well and also teach well are rare and Amy is one of those. Before I started with her, I had been doing crochet using YouTube and had taken a couple of local classes. I was pulling things out and starting over frequently because i'd realize i didn't understand/had totally missed something, which was getting frustrating. Even in the live classes the teachers were nice and skilled but they didn't take the time to make sure we understood certain fundamental facts about crochet and what we were doing, focusing more on just getting it done. Amy makes a point of expressing the basic things one needs to know about the stitches we are doing, as much as helping me get the final result.

I looked up online lessons because the quarantine had started and I had purchased a sweater pattern that I really wanted to make, and thought i should be able to accomplish. Many people on Ravelry had complained about the pattern's shortcomings -- some had given up on it, though the people that did complete it, had great results - over 95 people posted pictures of their results, though some aren't quite like the advertised picture. I really wanted to make that sweater though, so I thought it was time to get some real lessons, and found Amy. The way she talked me through the pattern and other patterns, I totally got how to look at patterns and think about them. She lets you know her thought process so you can think it through yourself. Now, when i rip something out to do something over, it's not because i don't know what i'm doing so much as i now know what i'm trying to accomplish. The sweater is almost done and btw, looks just like the picture!! I've realized that it's a great idea to tell Amy whatever i'm thinking and she will give the best advice. Oh, and from the first lesson, she got me getting straight edges easily (now, it makes so much sense but at the time it seemed like a fluke whenever i had a straight edge!)

Amy is a very experienced knitter which is what I am looking for. She is patient and answers questions so I can understand. She lets me choose my projects and encourages me to tackle harder patterns. Most important to me is I can call her during the week and ask for help when I need it and don't have to wait until class.
Scarlet
Awesome 1st lesson, Amy is a fount (font?) of information, I can't wait for the next lesson!

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.

I have been struggling over a sweater pattern that I purchased. Numerous Youtube videos didn't help. Several communications with the person who wrote the pattern didn't help. The pattern maker was super nice, but just could not communicate how to execute her instructions (teaching is a skill). The pattern stressed me out, and my beautiful yarn was going to waste. The sweater is super cute, so I decided to get help. Jane H. was amazing! Aside from being a very skilled knitter, she is an excellent teacher. She is personable and goes beyond the pattern to tell you why a stitch is being done the way it is, so that you know what it's supposed to look like. She truly gives you a knitting lesson. Online was great because I could see her hands up close, letting me see precisely how a stitch is done as she explained it. She taught me everything I need to know to knit this pattern and I am so thrilled! I can now actually knit this sweater. Thank you Jane. You're the best.
