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 mostly teach online for now. If you are vaccinated, I will consider teaching in person within 6 ...

About Amy

I am extremely patient and determined to teach anyone with a desire to knit or crochet, no matter how high or low their individual learning curve seems to be. I believe that if you have the desire, then you can learn. The speed in which you learn may be different than the next person, but, that is o

SHE WAS GREAT! Dawn knows so much and help guide me in making a cute quilt for my son!
Winnie
Dawn is an awesome knitting teacher. She is patient, friendly, communicates well with my teenaged daughter. My daughter really enjoyed each lesson and learned a lot. Even though this is an online lesson, it really doesn't affect Dawn's teaching quality. I highly recommend Dawn to whoever is interested in learning how to knit.
Cheryl
I have been taking quilting lessons from Dawn for many months now and I have found her to be a kind, patient and compassionate teacher. She is so helpful between lessons with questions and has videos to help. Being an older student with medical issues comes with challenges but she faces them with grace and compassion.

Go at your own pace and have fun are my knitting mottos! I teach continental style knitting and have been teaching beginners to knit for over 5 years. Together we'll experience the excitement that comes when you cast on something new, learn a new stich, or finish a favorite project.

I'm can start with the basics (cast on, knit stitch, purl stitch) or jump straight into helping on a project you have planned (or started and got stuck on? don't worry - it happens to all of us!). There is no limit to the kind or number of projects we can do. I have plenty of project ideas and am always happy to help with your ideas, too.

About Nicole

My grandmother taught me to knit when I was 11 years old, and after taking a few years off I picked up the hobby again in my 20s. Now in my 30s I am an avid knitter - there are always several projects on my needles (I need one I can travel with, one I can do while watching TV, and usually one I'm ma

In our individualized sessions, we will discuss your knitting goals, find patterns that fit your crafting ideals, and learn the building blocks to create magic!

About Olivia

I am an experienced knitter who took a big break in my knitting career! I learned the basic stitch at age 6 in a handwork class at Waldorf School, and I knit my first pair of socks in 4th grade. I put my needles down after eighth grade to focus on academics, but after college I was back at it. I bec

Barbara was very sweet, explicit in her instructions, and the class was enjoyable. I unraveled the swatch we made and had no trouble replicating it hours later. The method she taught me is firmly in my mind and I “get it”.
