Have you always wanted to learn to knit? I can teach you the in's and out's of knitting from beginning to end. Want to learn a new technique and need a little help? I often will take the time to learn new techniques just for the challenge of it. I have taught since 2010 and love knitting anything from washcloths to ornaments to socks and sweaters and beyond. This is a portable and relaxing activity.

About Angela

I learned to crochet in grade school, taught myself to knit and learned to sew from my mother at a very early age. Teaching grade school children/students is my passion. I believe learning to knit and sew can help students learn a level of patience and persistence that will help them in their schoo

Crocheting is all about enjoying what you create with your own two hands. So you will learn all the basics and beyond while creating actual items: from scarves to hats to crowns, stuffed animals, decor, whatever interests you!

My grandmother taught me how to do a basic stitch back in high school and I taught myself the rest! Fast forward years later and I have actually opened up my own crochet shop focusing on children's crocheted creations.

Sarah was energetic, positive, and kind with my daughter, age 11, who was really struggling to get a handle on a song for a play she has been trying to train for. This was her first voice lesson ever. My daughter was drawn in immediately by Sarah’s practical and happy approach and felt more capable and comfortable at the end of the session and is definitely looking forward to the next one. Hard to ask for more than that in a first lesson!

If you have felt like youtube videos don't give you enough guidance in folding Origami, I would be delighted to take you step by step taking things at your pace and level as we explore the craft of Origami together.

I was born in Japan and origami was something that came naturally to me as a child. The love of Origami was passed down to me from my Japanese Grandmother who decorated her room with all of her paper creations.

It's been in my blood and comes as second nature to me however I know how complex some of these folds can be and my goal as a teacher is to help anyone be able to fold anything, while throwing in stories from Japan and Origami trivia!

Laura is great! Very patient and always trying to make it easier to understand the concepts, I have done 2 online classes with her and already looking forward for other ones to come. Highly recommended!
Christopher N.
I was timid and shy. I could barely speak English and I had no business using a sewing machine let alone sewing together an original piece.
I found Laura on takelessons and decided to give her a try.
4 lessons later, I'm highly confident. Fluent in english, and I can sew together designer pieces that would make anyone's jaw drop.
Laura is my bastion to success, and I highly highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn.
Sandi
Laura helped me create my own pattern/garment from a tunic I already had. I had never taken an online- class before so I was concerned how effective it would be.
I was very impressed with Laura’s patience and instruction. She walked me through step by step and provided me with additional tips and videos that really helped me throughout the project
I highly recommend Laura. 😀
