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

I found Brenda to be responsible, flexible, knowledgeable, and pleasant to work with. She is very good at tailoring lessons to meet your needs -- so don't be afraid to ask for something! She works well with all ages, teaching three members of my family. She has some great experience, and I encourage any one to contact her for information.

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.

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?

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!

Rhiannon is a really great instructor. She's patient and knowledgeable. I took a slip stitch knitting class with her and it was a lot of fun. I highly recommend Rhiannon for any crafting classes she's offering; you'll learn a lot!

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 ...

Stella as my first tutor on takelessons. She is not only an incredibly accomplished crafter and artist, she is a patient and knowledgeable teacher too. She really went the extra mile and I feel much more confident using my serger now. I will definitely be booking her again!
