Karen has been a delight to work with on my beginner Crochet lessons. She is patient and encouraging. When I get frustrated with my errors, Karen knows how to help me understand ways to correct my mistakes. I enjoy crochet more and more and would like to continue lessons with Karen.
Troy Remick
Karen is a meticulous teacher. She explains lessons in an accessible manner and gives you hands on experience under her direction. She takes time to ensure the student's understanding and proficiency before progressing. She is patient and kind. She was extremely flexible in scheduling our lessons. I learned to crochet and the basics of getting started, how to read patterns, supplies needed and much more. I love that I am now proficient at my new hobby thanks to such a wonderful teacher. Thank you Karen!
Beth
AWESOME I so enjoy working with Karen! In advance of today’s lesson, we coordinated re work on a summer shawl Project. We both thought a summer shawl addressing those summer air conditioned restaurants was a good project for folks like me that travel a bunch and need take along projects. With Karen’s guidance in mind, I bought gthe yarn. Then Karen showed me 6-9 different shawls she’s made so I could pick target shawl pattern that wasn’t above my ability and appealed to me. I’m now on my way; 3+Rows in and feeling confident of noteworthy progress til next session.

I have been sewing for more than 20 years and take a practical approach to learning sewing. I like to have students start with a project that is going to be achievable.

This is perhaps my favorite subject to teach. There are such a variety of things you can do with the most basic of stitches, which students can then build upon depending on their interests. My goal for my students to walk away with a confidence in creating their own designs, with techniques tailored to their specific aesthetic goals.

*No machine embroidery.

Rhiannon was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Looking forward to the next lessons!
Danielle
I'm enjoying my classes. I've been bringing Rhiannon stitches I want to learn without any notice, and she is always able to help me on the spot to learn them. Her flexibility (both in what I want to learn and in scheduling) makes private classes a pleasant and worthwhile investment. Highly recommend!

Welcome to a new experience of knowledge transfer on a warm environment of friendship.
I will be your guide and partner on this exciting experience of bringing yarn to life by crocheting dolls. I will teach you crochet techniques and how to read and understand amigurumi patterns on a variety of languages including english, spanish and some portuguese notations (russian and german is a work in progress).
I totally agree with the idea of self-learning (I did so) as a way on achieving and improving your crocheting goals by following online text, pictures and videos. But I love to think about you as a friend on top of a student, human to human relationships empowers learning and enrichen our souls and hearts.
My main goal is to shorten and soften your learning journey by getting together to share some good quality time while having some social chat about general-interest topics like Disney's parks, Netflix series, latinamerican culture, spanish language and such.

About Karina

In a time where we're all in a hurry going nowhere and everywhere at the same time, being so busy on top of ourselves and constantly being pulled out of reality and humanity by our smartphones. I've found really comforting spending some time on crocheting dolls, I've got bedazzled by the amigurumi

Chess Openings & How To Start Your Game Strong

As a game, chess is traditionally divided into three phases: the opening, the middlegame, and the endgame. While all three are important, today I’m going to help you start out strong in the opening. When I first learned how to play chess, I played openings that really did not help me improve and left me with an awkward start to the game more often than not. Eventually, I adopted some of the openings that I will show you in this post and my rating skyrocketed. Opening Principles The first …
