Hello! I have been crocheting for several years now. In your first lesson, I will walk students through selecting materials, learning a few basic stitches, and how to read a pattern. In your second lesson, we will begin working on a pattern from a few curated beginners patterns. In a third lesson, I will teach some additional stitches and provide an additional pattern for the student to complete.

My goal in my lessons is to teach students how to be successful in their crochet project, so they will feel prepared to take on more challenging patterns in the future. Crochet is relaxing, fun, and beautiful, and I want to inspire the same feelings when my students attend my lessons.

About Heather

I love to teach what Eddie Kantar calls "thinking bridge". One of the aspects of thinking bridge is ability to count hands: distribution of suits and points.

Another, is learning DEFENSE. Every bridge player, on an average, defends 50% of a time, declares 25%, and does nothing another 25%.

My gurus are above mentioned Eddie Kantar and Mike Lawrence.

As a long-time knitter and 8th grade English teacher, I know that to learn a skill you need to hone your excited energy and jump right in with personalized guidance. I can help you learn to revel in the knitting process while also creating stunning, hand knit scarves, socks (yes, socks!), shawls (even the Wingspan shawl), and hats to start or continue in your knitting journey. I will be sure to craft our lessons to be exactly what you need to grow and flourish. We will figure out what you need in an informal, "chill" environment to truly benefit from the stress relief that is knitting. Send me a message and I will get back to you ASAP!

"We've had Dawn teach a variety of classes at the Simsbury Public Library (CT). Our most popular is the arm knitting class we open to Teens & Adults. Everyone gets to take home an infinity scarf and they all leave learning a new skill. Dawn works well with all ages, is patient, and really enthusiastic about teaching what she loves. We can't wait to have Dawn back to teach more classes this Fall!"

I helped Hans do some work on the tiny house he built, he was very patient with me as he explained tool use and how the pieces I was working on fit together. He also built a beautiful bench for my new home that is extremely unique."
