Sewing with me will not only teach you the basics but will help you delve into your creativity! Also, as someone with stress, I find sewing can help relieve some of it, and I can show you how to apply mindfulness techniques to make the most of your experience with sewing.

Hi! I grew up loving art, and then became interested in fashion and sewing during my teen years. After interning with a local Chicago designer I decided to go to university for apparel design. After graduating I had several jobs, one as a seamstress and most recently one at an embroidery shop where

I absolutely love Kelly's teaching style. She explains things clearly and allows me to do all the steps myself, while overseeing and giving me tips. She also lets me choose my projects so I'm motivated to work on each project. She is also very accommodating with my schedule and kiddos who are sometimes in the vicinity.

Hand Made Washcloths - In this beginners class Karen Jacobson will teach you how to cast on, knit, yarn over and bind off to create a homemade wash cloth. You bring yarn (4 1/2 oz. skein of sugar and cream 100% Cotton yarn) and needles (pair size 7 or 8, short ones are easier to work with) and you leave with the pattern and the know how to begin your own projects. This pattern can be easily converted to make other items, from table runners to scarves.

In this more advanced class Karen Jacobson will review knitting basics (cast on, knit, bind off) and will teach you how to purl and make pom-poms to create a pair of homemade baby booties.

Welcome to a new experience of knowledge transfer on a warm environment of friendship.
I will be your guide and partner on this exciting experience of bringing yarn to life by crocheting dolls. I will teach you crochet techniques and how to read and understand amigurumi patterns on a variety of languages including english, spanish and some portuguese notations (russian and german is a work in progress).
I totally agree with the idea of self-learning (I did so) as a way on achieving and improving your crocheting goals by following online text, pictures and videos. But I love to think about you as a friend on top of a student, human to human relationships empowers learning and enrichen our souls and hearts.
My main goal is to shorten and soften your learning journey by getting together to share some good quality time while having some social chat about general-interest topics like Disney's parks, Netflix series, latinamerican culture, spanish language and such.

About Karina

In a time where we're all in a hurry going nowhere and everywhere at the same time, being so busy on top of ourselves and constantly being pulled out of reality and humanity by our smartphones. I've found really comforting spending some time on crocheting dolls, I've got bedazzled by the amigurumi
