Brenda has been teaching my 7-year-old piano for 2 years.
She is prompt, polite and professional.
She is a great teacher and he has really learned a lot. He loves sports but I never have to fight with him to practice piano.

Brenda was very good with my daughter who is 10 years old. She assessed her skills level and they hit the ground running.

As with crocheting, I can teach a range of students, from those with the beginning desire to learn to students wishing to hone specific techniques. My favorite techniques include in the round and double pointed needles, because who doesn't want to learn to avoid more sewing?

Myself and a co-worker spent 3 lunch hours with Rhiannon learning the basics of crochet. Rhiannon taught us the various stitches and patiently worked with us until we were comfortable with each one. She also directed us to an online resource to support her instruction that we could refer to as needed. This was our first online lesson of any kind and we were extremely happy with what we learned and the convenience of learning it online. Thank you Rhiannon. :)

I loved my class with Rhiannon. I was a little unsure about how an embroidery class would truly work online. However, my class was clear, enjoyable and I particularly liked how Rhiannon showed me how each stitch I learned today, can be used to create specific effects. She used her own embroidery projects to illustrate this for me.
I can't wait for my next class!

Knitting is my favorite hobby so it became a natural next step to start teaching. I had several friends ask to be taught, and are now successful knitters who love it as much as I do!

I've been knitting for 10 years, and continue to learn new techniques, and try new and challenging projects. I regularly participate in workshops and retreats to expand my knowledge and skill set. I love to pass this knowledge on to you!

Every knitter is different and what works for one person might not be what works for you; because of this I have made it a point to know several techniques so I can work with you to find the one that works best for you.

I will start you off on a simple quick project to get the feel of knitting and then help you make whatever project you want to make! You should be making what you want to, not what someone else thinks you should be making.

I've taught children as young as 6 how to knit, along with several adults.

So let's grab some yarn and needles and ...

Megan is such a lovely and kind person. I wish she lived closer! We got right through the knitting pattern that I hadn't been able to make heads or tails of before.

Thank you, Megan!
