I was completely new to knitting when I began taking lessons with Kathy. Kathy taught me how to knit in a way that was fun and easy to understand. She suggested projects that helped me to learn without being overwhelmed and she was there to help me every step of the way. I am completely addicted to knitting now and Kathy is such a huge inspiration!
Michele
What a joy it was to first learn to knit, progress to simple projects and then on to intermediate projects with Kathy. She is the most positive and understanding instructor. Her personality makes things so stressless for the student. Kathy is such a happy individual and knows all the tips and tricks to accomplish the task at hand. She truly is an outstanding teacher and makes lessons FUN. I highly recommend Kathy teach you whatever knitting project you want to accomplish.
Betsy
Kathy instills both confidence and skill as she helps you navigate through patterns line by line! She is so knowledgeable about fiber selection, pattern choices and the finished project. I have grown as a knitter by leaps and bounds under her instruction - all this with a warm encouraging style! Enjoy your class

I have been playing chess for 35 years. I play generally three times a week and win regularly. I have taught the game to over 100 people in my life. I mentor a number of young people who strongly believe that my chess instruction and the applicable thought logic lessons I inculcate have escalated their job options. I prefer students at the introductory levels to eliminate bad habits.

As a sewing instructor, I aim to give beginner and intermediate students the time, attention, and encouragement needed to complete their projects so that they have the best experience possible. My goal is to teach you at your individual pace and level so you are comfortable with your sewing materials and equipment. You will be introduced to the sewing supplies needed at your instructional level such as commercial patterns, sewing kits, sewing machines, and more.

Online students receive a introductory call to discuss project goals and materials needed prior to class.

Look forward to creating with you all!

"When things click between instructor and student learning becomes a lot easier. I went into my first lesson with an open mind, and I was not disappointed. What JP explained to me had as much to do with his choice of words as it did with the credibility of his statements. We covered a lot of basics which I already knew, but how he explained them was in terms that I hadn't thought about. This prompted me to slow down and put more effort/concentration into each shot."

"Ok I literally just ended my lesson with Trivia and I wanted to make sure I wrote this review before I forgot. She is AMAZING. Her personality is so fun to start. No question is stupid and she REALLY knows her stuff. I had a project in mind that I've been wanting to work on for cosplay but I just had no idea how to approach the concept. I had messaged Trivia in advance to see if that was something she could help me with since this wasn't exactly a typical sewing lesson. She responded incredibly quick and said it was something we could do. She was able to fit me into a short notice class and broke everything down for me making what I thought would be an overwhelming project seem so much more simple now. I can't wait to start and I will definitely be in touch with her again the further I progress.
And just one other cool tidbit. I am in California and she is in Texas which I thought just added a little something more special to the lesson.
Thank you Trivia! Can't wait to talk again soon."

Patternmaking for Beginners: How to Make Your Own Patterns

Patternmaking for most beginners seems mysterious and intimidating. It is a subject a lot of sewists try to avoid. As a professional working in the fashion industry for more than a decade, I had the same fear as many of you. It took lots of trial and perseverance to overcome challenges, and carve out a successful career. The First Step is to Make Mistakes! Many of my students are worried about making mistakes.

5 Chess Moves to Up Your Endgame

The end of the game has come. You have successfully out-maneuvered and outfought your opponent, conquering large swaths of the chessboard, and approaching that triumphal moment when you will topple the opponent’s king and declare that he has fallen---in other words, a checkmate (recall that “checkmate” is an anglicization of “shah mat”, Persian for “the king is dead”)… Only to realize that you don’t quite know how to finish the game, which inevitably results in a slapsti …
