Learn to knit basics
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.
Hand Made Slippers and Baby Booties - Learn to knit and purl. 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. You bring yarn (2 oz skein 4 ply worsted weight Cotton yarn) and needles (pair 10 1/2) and you leave with the pattern and the know how to begin making your own slippers. This pattern can be easily converted to make adult size slippers as well.

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.

I will teach you how to make video games! I teach the following programs:

Scratch 2.0 - a great program to learn for beginners or children 8 and up! Put together code "blocks" like puzzle pieces to program your game!

Stencyl - For making games without typing code! Similar to Scratch where blocks of code are used, but much more powerful!

Unity - For making 2D and 3D games. We will use a little bit of C# language to code the games!

Game Art - Create game art and animation sprites for your games using Adobe Animate and Adobe Photoshop!

Children or Adults can take any of these programs. I recommend 8+ years for Scratch and 10+ years for Unity. 12+ years to really get into more actual c# coding.
