Learn with confidence from a caring teacher who will inspire you with a lifelong love of knitting.

Are you just a beginner? Do you need a little help understanding a new pattern or technique? Want to improve your finishing techniques to make your sweater the envy of all your friends?

Have you seen a project on Ravelry or Pinterest that you just love but are afraid it is beyond your skill level? Don't worry, you can call on me anytime to get you through a tough spot. I will even help you find, fix and prevent mistakes.

I have been knitting since I was a teenager back in the mid-'80s. I am a published designer, CYC Certified Instructor with over 9 years teaching experience inspiring beginners and experienced knitters.

Students are expected to provide all tools and materials but I will help you find what you need for your project. Recommend duration for in-person lessons is 90 minutes.

About Kim
For creative people and makers, crafting is like going to the gym. You will find great fulfillment and a sense of accomplishment if you set aside time on a regular basis to nurture this very important part of what makes you who you are. Think of me like a personal trainer. I will encourage and inspire you while you develop your skills and express yourself through a variety of textile based media.

Private and group lessons or classes are provided in locations around the NYC area, in my space or via webcam. My focus is on providing an entertaining, relaxing and enjoyable experience as you learn a leisure time activity. I am extremely patient and detail oriented. When you let me know what you would like to learn or make, I will guide you through everything from selecting materials to fine tuning your technique. Take a lesson with me to fi
nd out why my students love me.

Teaching is a wonderful extension of my work as a professional crochet and knit designer and technical editor. A web search will reveal some of my published work over the last decade. As a craft teacher in the NYC area for over 8 years, I have worked with individuals, groups and classes of all ages and skill levels. Most of my experience focuses on working with older adults and people with special needs. Minors must have a supervising adult present. I do not work with groups of young children.

I have studied the history and mastered the skills to make and teach a vast variety of textile techniques. Please see my experience.

If you are using this site without the assistance of a TL Rep, I recommend the schedule as you go option. I often have openings in my calendar sooner than the site allows. After we make contact, we can choose the best date and time.

*** Lesson Details ***
Please let me know what you would like to learn or make before your lesson so that we may be fully prepared with any materials, tools, equipment, books or handouts. Students are expected to provide all their own tools and materials unless other arrangements are made.

Recommended duration for in-person lessons is 90 minutes. A surcharge may be added for travel outside of areas accessible by one MTA fare or expected travel time exceeding 90 minutes.

*** Specialties ***
Textile based crafts including crochet, knitting, embroidery, sewing, patchwork, plastic canvas, needlepoint, counted cross stitch, bobbin lace, historic textile and costume conservation and storage, and more.

I also love to research and develop craft projects for classes or master techniques students would like to learn.

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 19 years, singing for 25, and playing piano for 20 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 am currently a member of Trip City Lights, an LA local funk/soul band, where I provide lead and backing vocals. I also record vocals for different artists hooks, jingles, choruses, and songs (covers and originals). I have also composed/arranged various pieces for ensembles, bands, vocal groups, choirs,
plays, musicals, commercials, etc. I've worked with folks locally in LA, and all over the world. I love what I do!

History has always fascinated me. The 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 10 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!

Have a specific project in mind, or just want to pick up a new skill? Beginner level students will learn basic stitches and yarn properties. Starting projects will be selected from a variety scarves, hats, and small toys (referred to as amigurumi). More advanced students can choose to learn socks, gloves and to modify patterns, and eventually create their own. Knitting needles and yarn can be provided for a small extra fee, or a materials list will be provided for students to purchase their own supplies.

About Molly
Raised in New York city, I attended Stuyvesant High School, the jewel in the crown of the NYC public school system. Traditional academic achievement was not enough for me however, and I went on to study fashion design, honing my artistic skills at Drexel University. Call me a renaissance woman or a Jill-of-All-Trades, I've been employed in fashion houses, graphic design firms and visual effects shops. I've also made my way freelancing as a photographer, web designer, and writer. In addition to this variety of creative skills, I have a Bachelors in Business Administration, and training in Quickbooks. I recently scored a perfect 170 on the GRE verbal, and obtained admission into several competitive doctoral programs in Clinical Psychology.

I realize it is not enough to merely have skills or intelligence in order to be a tutor. One must
be able to convey them to the student in a way that is effective and (hopefully) enjoyable. From the helping students prepare a portfolio for undergraduate admission, to teaching the basics of essay writing, I have a warm attentive attitude that sets students of all ages at ease. My teaching style is focused on the learning style of the person I am working with, tailoring the exercises to help achieve specific goals.

Molly was understanding in scheduling conflicts and worked with me so we could get our lessons done. She made sure that I understood each thing that we went over and gave me homework that helped me get some practice in that I needed. I made a blanket for my sister who just had a baby and it is a wonderful keepsake!

Thanks Molly!

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 have been knitting seriously for a little over ten years. I enjoy newer and older patterns. I currently really enjoy Stephen West, Wenlan Chia and Tiny owl knits. My teaching technique is very flexible. As a teacher, I have extra supplies to ensure that my student isn't worried about things they are missing. If the student needed guidance purchasing yarn, I am very knowledgeable about yarn weights and gauge.

About Tatianna
-Do you love knit sweaters, but not the prices?
- Do you enjoy having one of a kind garments?
-Are you a crafter and a fashion enthusiast?
You might very well be a knitter/ or a crocheter. It might sound or look hard, but it is so fun and easy with the right guidance. I pride myself on being aware of all new styles of knitwear and Pantones. I'm ready to teach and share my knit secrets. If you're ready to take a leap, I'm your teacher!

You don’t have to be an expert knitter to create beautiful projects! My lessons are for beginner knitters.

With me, you will learn several stitches that are surprisingly easier than you may think! Some of the included skills learned will be:
Knit stitch
Purl stitch
Garter stitch
Wrap and turn
Decreasing and increasing stitches
And more!

Combining these basic skills will give you a basis for creating multiple pieces. I teach on straight kneedles.

Let’s have fun knitting!

About December
Hi! My name is December and I am a 28 year old lover of music and crafts!

Music was instilled in me from a very young age with piano lessons, and I grew up playing the piano, flute, and singing in choirs. I graduated from Grove City College with a degree in vocal music, and always looked forward to teaching piano and voice lessons during the summer months. My students appreciate that lessons are fun and worthy of their time. You will not walk away from a lesson without new knowledge and skills!

In my spare time, I usually have some craft in hand. Knitting has become a favorite hobby of mine, and being mostly self taught, I love helping others discover how easy and rewarding it can be!

My goal is to help you have fun while practicing your skills, and to learn something new and attainable at each lesson. Lessons will be based on
your current skill level and will increase in difficulty based on your own rate of learning. I believe that learning should be fun, rewarding, and purposeful. I am very easy going, but also want to help hold you to the standard of learning that will help you advance your studies.
