Preston is a very nice coach. I was a beginner with zero experience before. After five lessons, I gained solid basic skills and feel more comfortable to rally. I feel growing by leaps and bounces.

He is very sharp about identifying the problem and then training accordingly. He is also kind and very patient to guide

I've been teaching knitting for 7 years and my students have gone on to create bags, scarves, headbands, and bracelets. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to complete a headband or scarf and as time goes on you'll be able to knit a hat in the round. I specialize in working with heavy weight yards and creating a funky, wildly textured projects. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Are you ready to tackle some basic sewing that can decrease your alteration cost? Let me show you how to do some simple hand or machine sewing. You will learn how to fix a hem, replace a button or shortening and lengthening pant/skirt or dresses and even altering the waist.
