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

I began knitting when I was twelve years old; I sat beside my neighbor, Mrs. Turner, and listened to her stories while I watched her wooden straight needles move expertly along, clacking-clacking in counterpoint to the crackling of the wood in the corner stove. Mrs. Turner had a laid back approach to teaching knitting. The point of knitting wasn't simply to produce a useful item: it was to enjoy the process. If you made a mistake, just unmake it and try again. The worst that could happen was you would end up with two sticks and some string.

When you're twelve, life is filled with drama. Knitting was not. It has always been a meditative, nurturing retreat. There have been times in my life when I've knitted more, times when I've knitted less. But the lessons I learned from knitting have served me well over the years: patience, perseverance, and keeping it all in perspective.

I'd love to share this craft with someone else. Come, learn to knit and see what else you might learn ...

About Maureen

I have been knitting for more than 35 years, and was taught by a neighbor when I was 12 years old. I found it fascinating and rewarding to transform something disorganized (a ball of yarn) into something purposeful and beautiful. As I grew up, and my world expanded, I found the world of fiber was

About Tyler

I grew up learning slower than everyone else. So slow that it was obvious from a very young age that there was something the matter with me. My mom would drive four hours to go to classes for children with learning disabilities on the weekends. I started speech therapy and eventually we would learn

I have been in the field of carpentry for the past 30 years. Started when I was 15 working with my cousin building custom homes. We built during a time when the only thing that showed up on a job site was a bundle of wood, no trusses, no pre-framed walls, we had to do it all. This experience was tough but overall taught me lessons of what I feel is a dyeing trade.
I can show you how to frame a house, shed, room addition, how to use a framing square, how to cut crown, cut stairs, how to measure and cut rafters, cutting trim, how to hang a door, install door hardware and overall any other general inquiries you may have on building.
My building experience has had me in the custom construction field where I was the owner from building custom lofts in Chicago to large renovations in the suburbs.
Please let me know the specifics of what you need help with and I would be happy to share my thoughts with you.

Hello, I have been a carpenter since I was roughly 16 years old. During this time we had to learn how to build from literally a pile of lumber that was dropped off on the driveway. As home building got bigger and more complex so did our demands on the trade. I can help you learn how to cut a ro

"Sam is a truly fantastic teacher. I am a clinical counselor and very picky with giving praise to anyone in the helping and teaching professions, but Sam, who (among other qualifications), also has a psychology AND teaching background, has a gift of making children feel almost instantly accepted, cherished, and excited. He is patient, warm, strategic but flexible, always adjusting to my daughter's needs in an instant. Sam provides that perfect combination of inciting commitment and a disciplined approach to learning while allowing a child to grow in his or her own pace and have fun while doing it that most children need, and I can whole-heartedly recommend him to anyone."
