I started teaching knitting when I was 15, to both those younger and older than me. What I think I bring to the table is an extraordinary amount of patience and excitement! I remember very clearly when I was learning to knit when I was around 10, how stressed out and frustrated I kept getting. I know that the learning process is different for every single person so I strive to make sure you are comfortable and we are only going at the pace that works best for you. This can be a life long fun and satisfying activity (once the stress part goes away!)

When I was in high school, I started teaching lessons at a yarn shop and realized how much I enjoyed working with others. Professionally I have held several customer service and managemen

Go at your own pace and have fun are my knitting mottos! I teach continental style knitting and have been teaching beginners to knit for over 5 years. Together we'll experience the excitement that comes when you cast on something new, learn a new stich, or finish a favorite project.

I'm can start with the basics (cast on, knit stitch, purl stitch) or jump straight into helping on a project you have planned (or started and got stuck on? don't worry - it happens to all of us!). There is no limit to the kind or number of projects we can do. I have plenty of project ideas and am always happy to help with your ideas, too.

About Nicole

My grandmother taught me to knit when I was 11 years old, and after taking a few years off I picked up the hobby again in my 20s. Now in my 30s I am an avid knitter - there are always several projects on my needles (I need one I can travel with, one I can do while watching TV, and usually one I'm m

From learning to cast on and work a knit stitch to understanding techniques like brioche, cables or mosaic, I believe knitting should be fun and enjoyable - not stressful - and is attainable by all!

Are you looking to take up a new, relaxing hobby? Or maybe it's been a couple of years and you need a refresher? For the more experienced crafters, even if you just need help with a new project, I can get you where you want to be! With my guidance you'll be able to cast on and knit, and as time goes on you'll be creating wonderful garments in your own unique style. I specialize in sock knitting, colorwork, and pattern reading and writing, typically using my own books and teaching materials, as well as: printed material, online resources, YouTube videos, and podcasts. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels - so whether you're just starting out or want to learn something new, I'm your girl!

Elizabeth is the most talented, knowledgeable, upbeat instructor for knitting and crochet that you will find. From helping beginners learn the basics to coaching a seasoned knitter through a specific technical problem on their project, Elizabeth can do it all. And her glowing personality will put a smile on your face at the same time. If you want to learn to knit or crochet or improve your skill level, give Elizabeth a try.
Jessica Herrera
She would have been a good teacher if it wasn't for the no-shows without notice. She was pleasant and knowledgeable about crochet. I tried to be understanding about the constant schedule changes, but I usually had to contact her first to see why she wasn't at the lesson. I should have had three classes leftover that was part of the package that I ordered, but I canceled them instead. I will look for another option to learn crochet. If you have a free schedule, perhaps she will work for you, but I would think twice about it if you have to stick to a specific time. I usually don't write bad reviews, but I don't want you to feel blindsided.
Jessica Herrera
She's fun and nice.
