Knitting is a wonderful skill! From the practical -- such as scarves, sweaters, or socks -- to the artistic, learning to knit gives you a hobby that reduces stress, gives the ability to make your own gifts, and even earn a little pocket money! I have been knitting for over 20 years and selling my knitted creations for about 10 years. I can get you started with knitting!

As we took a childbirth class from Christelle, you might say we took one of the most important classes in our lives from her! We honestly believe if we had not taken her class we would not have had nearly so positive an experience in natural childbirth, so much credit is due to her. Christelle prepared thoroughly for all our lessons, included interesting activities and personal anecdotes. Most importantly, Christelle made it clear that she cared not only about our grasp of the content but also about us as people. That made all the difference.

Christelle is very knowledgeable and personal at the same time. I like how she can draw a lot from her personal experience as well.

Not only will you be sewing in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of stitches, techniques and understanding patterns for individual garments...and you may also choose to learn how to repurpose the clothes you already have to make them fresh again.

Taryn is great. My 7 year old daughter was shy at first to start her lesson, and Taryn knew just how to talk to her to get her relaxed and engaged. Very knowledgable and kind.

I've been teaching Crocheting for 10 years and my students have gone on to make things as small as bracelets to something as unique as jumping rope. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to make a pencil pouch and as time goes on you'll be able to make your own blankets. I specialize in making gift like ornaments to winter apparel, typically use patterns from books and online, and have the 22 different crochet hooks and yarn available for your lessons. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Mr. Siddharth is teaching our 5 year old. It has been just two classes and I see my son being excited for the class. Mr. Siddharth is very patient and takes time to go over concepts and tests them out with our son and never rushes him even if it goes beyond time.
Even before the classes started he called us to get an idea on our son's competency level which was very appreciated. We look forward to continue the training with him!
Jenny
I find the lessons to be very fun and I am learning a lot, the lessons have really helped me play better whenever I practice chess with friends.
Shradha
Siddharth is an excellent teacher. He was able to quickly assess my daughter's skill level and begin teaching her foundation and strategy to improve her game. Very patient and good with children. Highly recommended.

"I am an extreme beginner (who tried unsuccessfully to self teach) and I was extremely happy with my first lesson. The instructor was very patient, and her instructions were clear and easy to follow. She easily answers any questions that come up. She made it seem completely possible to conquer the techniques that seemed so daunting on my own! I’m excited for lesson 2 :)"
