Dawn has wonderful instruction and is quite patient with new beginners like myself! Explanation is clear and she has a freakin wealth of knowledge about sewing, patterns, tips and tricks to make the outcome much neater, and starts off with the perfect projects for a beginner. Def a five start rating! :-)

Dawn is awesome! Very thorough with her explanations and really customizes lessons to my goals. She’s very encouraging and always reachable for questions outside of classes. Her hardware set up was conducive to on line lessons so it felt as much of an in person class as it could get. The lessons have really prepared me and got me excited for many more sewing projects!

SHE WAS GREAT! Dawn knows so much and help guide me in making a cute quilt for my son!

I am an experienced knitting teacher and am certified to teach knitting by The Knitting Guild Association (TKGA) and the Craft Yarn Council of America. My goal is to educate and preserve for future generations the appreciation of hand knitting as a fiber art that provides stress relief, is a creative outlet, and provides a sense of accomplishment.

I truly enjoy teaching others to knit and have enjoyed 15 years of helping new knitter's confidence soar and creativity grow while teaching knitting in various venues throughout Los Angeles and Orange Counties including Pasadena City College, Monrovia Adult School, the City of Santa Fe Springs, City of Glendale, City of Orange and City of Whittier.

Since 2004 I’ve taught hundreds of people the craft of knitting. While developing a well-organized teaching approach, creating effective lesson plans and fun methods of teaching basic to advanced techniques and sharpening my ability to tailor my teaching skills to fit the needs of all ...

Clear, easy instruction and lots of patience. I love to teach others something new and bring them to a place of refreshing rest as they learn to create new and wonderful things. Adult Beginners and Intermediate levels are welcome. I will teach the basics for beginners - Cast on/off, knit/purl stitches, increasing/decreasing and we will finish with a project. Intermediates usually need help getting started again, finishing a project or help with a pattern, I will also teach you new stitch patterns to have fun with.

About Melisa

I love to teach and I am very patient. I first learned to knit as a 21 yr old in Norway over 35 years ago. Knitting is a great way to relax, it is repetitious so it is great for those with anxiety and other problems related to stress or focusing. I have been teaching children and adults for over 1

Are you looking to take up a new, relaxing hobby? Or maybe it's been a couple of years and you need a refresher? For the more experienced crafters, even if you just need help with a new project, I can get you where you want to be! With my guidance you'll be able to cast on and knit, and as time goes on you'll be creating wonderful garments in your own unique style. I specialize in sock knitting, colorwork, and pattern reading and writing, typically using my own books and teaching materials, as well as: printed material, online resources, YouTube videos, and podcasts. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels - so whether you're just starting out or want to learn something new, I'm your girl!

Elizabeth is fantastic! She's patient and great at explaining the how to's and the why's about all things crocheting. Highly recommend.

Elizabeth did a great job teaching my 15 year old daughter to crochet. She was friendly, patient, and made the lesson fun! We booked 5 additional lessons!
Prasanna
My first lessons with Elizabeth was great - we covered some crocheting techniques, that as a self taught crocheter, I wasn't familiar with. Looking forward to my continued work with her!

"Amy is a very experienced knitter which is what I am looking for. She is patient and answers questions so I can understand. She lets me choose my projects and encourages me to tackle harder patterns. Most important to me is I can call her during the week and ask for help when I need it and don't have to wait until class."
