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.

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!

"If you love the look of Origami but were worried that it seems complicated to make, then this course is for you
Origami should be enjoyable! With the help of these lessons, you’ll see that it’s easy to create complex and elegant Origami models! Each lesson is between 30 and 45 minutes and gets you from the flat piece of paper to the completed model!
You get a great sense of satisfaction from being able to pick up a simple piece of paper and making it into a piece of art!

Having been a knitter for 14 years now I’ve taught individual/private lessons and in group settings. From cables to color work, I’ve covered just about everything you could ask for. I’m a continental knitter and can show multiple ways to tension your working yarn (often a struggle for new knitters). I’m able to teach beginner to intermediate and have advanced skills for those wanting to push themselves. Knowing how to read your knitting is important for all skill levels so I encourage that no matter where you are in your knitting journey.

As a fiber artist I’ve created my own patterns as well. I’m not just a knitter. I’ve been spinning for 12 years and weaving for 2.

About Liz

I'm an avid fiber artist with over a decade of experience in knitting and spinning. I'm experienced in multiple techniques and encourage learning new ones. I practice what I preach and work on my own education. with various courses, both in person and online. My favorite way of teaching is by pick

"I enrolled my 11-year old daughter in Felicia's Saturday sewing class. Because the lesson is some distance from our house, I stuck around and observed the lessons. Felicia is unfailingly patient, kind and unhurried. She does not jump in and take over if something goes wrong; she teaches the child to cut, measure, stitch, etc. and expects the child to master and complete the task alone. Her classes are fun and my daughter has taken a real interest in sewing."
