I love knitting, enjoying making a huge variety of items using many different techniques. I knit using the English style, having grown up in Cheshire, England, but also knit using the Continental style of knitting too. I have been teaching knitting in groups and on a one to one basis for a few years. My students have ranged in age from 8 years old to 80 years old.
If you need help with a specific project, learning a new technique or just starting out as a beginner knitter, please get in touch.

I think Jane will be able to help me through a gauge related knitting weak area I’ve had for years. I’m excited to get to the next lessons. She’s very knowledgeable and had at her fingertips anything we needed to keep digging for answers and examples. Couldn’t have asked for a better suited match for me.

Do you want to build learn basic woodworking, or build shop cabinets, but don't know where to start? I've been doing woodworking for over 30 years and have been designing and building shop cabinets for the last 4 years, and I love to share my learning with others. If you are just starting woodworking and don't know where to begin, I've got some great starter projects for you to work on that require a minimum of skills and tools. Most of my lessons are online via the Takelessons interface, but if you live near Lexington, KY, I'd be glad to teach you in my shop. My specialty is in designing and building shop cabinets quickly and efficiently. If you would like to design and build shop cabinets or custom drawers for a storage space that you would like to better utilize, you've come to the right place! If you or your child would like to learn basic woodworking (esp. during this COVID season), I would be excited to help you. Please send me a message if you have any questions.

I am truly enjoying learning how to sew with Rosemary as my teacher. So far, I have seen a blouse and a skirt that I need to add finishing touches on. I am going to sign up for more lessons. I want to perfect the art of sewing.

"Lily, by far and away has exceeded mine and my wife's expectations. She was extremely patient and knowledgeable. We are in the process of opening a embroidery and screen printing store and Lily was very helpful with eliminating some of the road blocks we have faced over last month. It was only an hour but I felt that we accomplished a lot in that 60 minutes. My wife has accomplished a bunch of shirts in the one day since our lesson. With eliminating some of the road blocks she had encountered, she was able to finish a project without frustration and wasting hours. We look forward to next weeks lesson. I rarely give reviews and I am not doing this to be nice. I truly want to give LILY the Props she deserves. She immediately makes you feel very comfortable and never makes you feel dumb. We highly recommend her services."

"I've taken informal lessons with Dipankar for the last 2 years or so. He does a great job at explaining the game of chess. He is very patient. I have been able to learn a few different openings and have seen great improvement in my games. It is apparent Dipankar loves the game of chess and has an avid interest in improving his own abilities. You won't find a better fit!"

"We never thought we would have an International Master as our son's chess teacher.

We have a typical 7 year old. High on energy with zero patience. But Danial knows how to channel that energy into our son's lessons and helps him think strategically, analytically, and patiently. Our son's games have improved dramatically ever since he started with Danial. He has learned so many different startegies and techniques from him, and can easily identify them. Being so young himself, Danial is able to connect with kids at their level and make the lessons fun, yet challenging. Being so disciplined and focused himself, he is able to pass that on to our son. But most of all, he is inspiring. He always tells our son, "I did it, and you can too!". We couldn't have asked for a better teacher, and a role model. I highly recommend him."

I’m a seamstress, but embroidery presented a new learning curve that required expert assistance... & then I found Lily!!! Personable, patient, and so very knowledgeable!

"Lily is a great instructor. She knows her craft well. She is patient, friendly and has a great smile and laugh that helps makes her student comfortable and at ease thus making learning fun. Lily has the knowledge to help anyone with sewing, embroidery, machine embroidery and more. I highly recommend Lily as an instructor for whatever area you are trying to learn from her huge arsenal of expert techniques.

Lily is helping me to become proficient using my embroidery machine. She immediately taught me a few tricks to getting my machine to do what it is suppose to do without much effort. She has in one lesson given me tons of information and help to get my embroidery hobby started properly. It's awesome to have one on one assistance right in my home so I don't have to take my heavy machine anywhere.

I'm disabled and having a service like this one available is invaluable. I have to keep my mind working and busy, and this helps me tremendously. Thank you LILY and TakeLessons for helping me to fulfill my goals!"

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 …

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 …
