About Chris
I have a B.A. in English and over 20 years of professional writing and computer experience, including Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, and many other software applications, which I taught at a paralegal school. I have studied acting and improvisation and performed in both community theater and professionally, as well as on film. I have also studied art, with an emphasis on drawing and acrylic painting. I have converted many of my drawings to woodburnings, which have won awards at the Arizona State Fair. In addition, I have been crocheting and working with needlecrafts since the age of 12. I am very easy-going with a great sense of humor, which I believe is essential in order to make learning more enjoyable and memorable.

About Sandy
Having taught Chinese Language Skills in the private sector, primary, secondary and college institutions for a number of years in China, has not only given me great confidence to teach in a classroom setting, but has inherently brought an instructor comfort that feels natural to me.
In addition, finding an opportunity where I can assist the kids, middle school and high school students and adults who love to learn Chinese college staff while maintaining my teaching proficiency in traditional or simplified Chinese characters is both welcome and rewarding to me.

I'm certain that my rich knowledge and years of experience in classroom practical application of Chinese Curriculum / Culture coupled with my love to teach make me a professional, responsible and patient teacher.

In addition, I can teach you Chinese in your location which
is no more than 10 miles away from Vista where I live. I can also teach you how to play badminton and cook delicious authentic Chinese food.

Ms. Qi is a very accessible and diligent teacher. My son can be difficult, but she found ways to quickly connect with him and get him to open up. She accommodated his need for assistance with his regular work, but encouraged us to "start again" with Chinese which is probably a good idea. Very much appreciate her experience and enthusiasm.

About Matthew
Hello, there! My name is Matthew! I've been teaching private lessons since 2014 and have loved helping my students learn the knitting/crocheting basics, expand their understanding of their abilities, and find a proactive way to relieve stress and bad moods. I teach knitting English or Continental style, multiple cast on methods and when to use them, different increase and decrease methods achieving different looks depending on the pattern and desired outcome, and finally different bind off methods.

I knit and crochet for a high fashion handcrafted company (The Third Piece), I have an Etsy shop, and am commissioned to crochet for international competitions. I'm a kind and outgoing person and my teaching style is relaxed yet focused, goal oriented, and fun! Knitting and crocheting are wonderful ways to express yourself, relieve stress,
and to make gifts for multiple occasions. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

About Ellen
Whether you want to begin knitting or crocheting, or already love to, there’s always something new to learn. I love all aspects of knitting and crochet - color, texture, and creation. And I love sharing all this with my students. I personally enjoy the math of it, and can help make it easy if math is not your “thing”.

Would you like to learn basic skills, hone current ones , or enhance your experience with new techniques? If you're in the middle of a project and need help, or have specifice technique(s) you'd like to work on, consider booking a 15 minute class, or a series of them.

Choose from these subjects, or tell me what you’d like to work on:

• Reading the Yarn Ball Band - Why the information on it is helpful and important
• How to use Ravelry - A knitting community full of useful information
• Fiber Math…Yes you can
- How to understand gauge and yarn weights/quantities.
• How to Read and Translate Charts
• Help with a Current Project – Understanding a pattern, technique, or correcting a mistake
• Knitting Lace and Openwork Basics – How to do increases and decreases
• Bead Crochet – Crochet necklaces and bracelets, or embellish knitting or crochet projects with beads.
• Hyperbolic Crochet – For those that love math or want to learn how to crochet curves from a flat surface (think of coral, or the edge of a curly lettuce leaf like kale)
• Your wish list of knitting or crochet skills…

I have been teaching since 2012 and am available to teach lessons online and in NYC. I learned teaching skills from some of the most loved and respected teachers in well-known stores, teaching venues, and events. I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals, and have fun while we work together. As an added bonus, I teach both right and left handed as needed. Do you need a time, place, or topic not listed here? Just ask. We can probably work something out.

Enrich your fiber crafting experience. What would you like to learn? Contact me and let’s get started.

Ellen is the best knitter/crocheter I've ever met. She's saved several of my projects. She's very patient, doesn't make me feel stupid and she's very helpful. I'd recommend her without reservation.

I spent many years as a professional dressmaker and retail merchandising of designer sportswear. Learn to sew with me and have the looks you really want.

Haven't taken sewing classes since high school. This is a personalized option for adults that considers the "basics". Best for someone who wants to replicate favorite looks and learn how fabric and notions work together.

About Leslie
Inspired by hours paging through the French Vogue with my grandmother who would read the text for me and tell me about all the designers and what made each of them special, I set my sights on Fashion Design at the age of 9. I studied sewing throughout high school and then went on to get a degree in Clothing/Costume design at Brooks College of Design in Los Angeles and apprenticed under the beading master to Hollywoods Costumers (Bob Mackie, Nolan Miller) and learned a rare and dying art of French Embroidery beadwork.
After years working for designers making everything from leather/suede beaded evening gowns for the Country Music Awards to wedding dresses I slowly became more interested in Interiors and soft furnishings. I became a subcontractor for Interior Designers in San Diego and later San Francisco and continued such work in New Yor
k. Later I added carpentry to my list of skills and became a Green remodeler until the Crash.
Today I most enjoy being free to follow my whims. I like to refurbish old furniture, upholster, slipcover and also do the same with clothing. I love vintage and vintage inspired clothes as well as anything finely made. I imagined being a couturier and costume designer for Broadway, but alas I am a humble artisan in my free time only.
I am not a quilter or crafter, but I can do it if required. I prefer detailed handwork, funnily, whimsical or high fashion sewing.
I enjoy helping people with beginning to advanced projects and can bring the classroom to you.
