Bgcheck Background Checked


Have you always wanted to learn to knit? I can teach you the in's and out's of knitting from beginning to end. Want to learn a new technique and need a little help? I often will take the time to learn new techniques just for the challenge of it. I have taught since 2010 and love knitting anything from washcloths to ornaments to socks and sweaters and beyond. This is a portable and relaxing activity.

About Angela

I learned to crochet in grade school, taught myself to knit and learned to sew from my mother at a very early age. Teaching grade school children/students is my passion. I believe learning to knit and sew can help students learn a level of patience and persistence that will help them in their schoo

Angela was a an excellent instructor! She was very engaged with staff as we had zero experience! Angela was able to incorporate mindfulness practices into our knitting session with my management team. I would highly recommend her!

I just want to say, "I am very pleased working with Thomas." I never thought that I could master the game of chess especially by being impatient and a slower learner. This is my fourth lesson and I have already played a game of chess. Thank You So Much, Thomas. I can't wait until my next lessons.

As a sewing instructor, I aim to give beginner and intermediate students the time, attention, and encouragement needed to complete their projects so that they have the best experience possible. My goal is to teach you at your individual pace and level so you are comfortable with your sewing materials and equipment. You will be introduced to the sewing supplies needed at your instructional level such as commercial patterns, sewing kits, sewing machines, and more.

Online students receive a introductory call to discuss project goals and materials needed prior to class.

Look forward to creating with you all!

Felicia is an great teacher. Her training room has everything you need and more. When I first started class, she greeted me with a smile that made me feel comfortable. Her knowledge and experience of sewing is remarkable. Great teacher and great class, if you dont take her class, you are missing out on a true talent.

"My first lesson went great! Anne showed me everything I needed to know to help me begin practicing on my own with confidence. She does have two small children who were well behaved, but if distractions are a problem, I would mention that before taking your first lesson. At the end of my two hour session I had sewn my first bag and now have something to show my friends and family! Thanks, Anne."

In our first day, she helped me learn the semantics of patternmaking and sewing and apply it visually to a dress form! For any beginner or someone who needs to solidify their foundation, Vena is a great instructor!"
